    Default More Women have degrees than men

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/ar...man-marry.html

    approximately 50 per cent of women are graduating from university by the time theyre 30 and perhaps about 40 per cent of men.
    Maybe because the other 10% are working to make up for the gap in the workplace caused by people who stay in long drawn out university stays lasting till they are 30!



    Hell's bells! By the time this ladies are finished University they are ready to retire and have kids.

    'It may, in turn, shift balance of earnings between women and men because it connects with what I was saying earlier that, by and large, graduates earn more.
    You know who earn even more than graduates? People who have a job.

    Having a degree these days is like having 1 million German marks back in 1923: it doesn't really mean all that much.

    Would be interesting in what field they graduate tho. This might be a generalization, but in the Netherlands, the majority of women are either in Medschool or some kind of social science. They're in Medschool because they tend to be the harder workers (in the cramming sense, they tend to have more discipline for the crammy stuff, most of the girls who attend medschool are pretty dumb in my experience ). Yet the technical studies, physics, design, logistics etc. tend to be male dominated. And while this, again, is a generalization, the people in technical studies tend to contribute more to society then art major number 15030532.

    Here is similar situation. I think on my faculty there is 90% of girls, while on all technical faculties there is 90% of men.

    And i do admit it would be harder to me to finish technical studies.

    I have an Associate of Arts in general business studies.

    My wife has a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering, a Master's with a concentration in Electro-Optics, plus half of the credits needed towards an MBA.

    Both of us went to college in hopes of obtaining a commission in the US Air Force.

    She succeeded, I did not.

    Societal pressure. "Get an education...." Here in the Netherlands you have to be 16,17 years old with a VMBO (middle school) diploma before you can help in a supermarket - filling the shelves.

    At least 1 million marks could buy you a semmel at the bakers (if you got to the shop before 12.00, that is). After which the same bread roll would cost you 50 billion marks.

    Just seems like a waste of time to me in the states. I guess you would better off learning a trade then going in debt to get a degree that is practically worthless.

    Society IMO needs to move back to where learning a trade was just as good as a college degree or at the very least a respectable alternative.
