College Rankings Overrated?

August 14, 2019 99 By Stanley Isaacs


i want to start off with a student
submissions aisle of the students admissions and we got one from edwin
oman it was actually an intern here begin delivering care at abbey young
turks and he decided to share a story with us that i think is really important
okay because there’s an important message to take away from it so i do want to give too much away wet
swatches video first and then he asked was a really important question lance’s question afterwards it’s the
admission of personal story historians so a couple years ago in california state university warn
princeton new jersey with the local youth thing a survey students indian was so this is the purpose of this is the
without and the process started innocently
enough which we want to which means you are your plans in the way but then ticking me off of the swallow she asked muhlenberg knowing that you had to use use use
buchanan’s routine tvc exclusive was successful for those in the fifties i was a victim well at the moment uh… things really
got me thinking about the cause of huntington’s one because at the moment that
particular school was right monthly destitution indignation once was and really wanted with important issues sixteen police unfortunately one
determining what schools should be good personally the this institute least anything informs on on the college ranking system because
would actually uses indicator from which leaves was the people who have graduated at the start research disney conducted at the university things like that uses the term one success so uh… solution of uses how much importance should we place on the conferencing system procedures get rid of it india well that video because it really
focuses on something that i struggled with before i decided to go to cal state ok
happy he went to a cal state the research that he’s talking about was
that being conducted by you see student and you know the u_c_ san has an
audience biased as i don’t think that there are absolutely no studies there is
nothing out there that proves that going to u_c_ guarantees your
success as opposed to going to accommodate so on it’s funny because you see as
they’re known as research base forthright and um… she is failing miserably
professor at the style our buyers to obviously i go to a cal
state but i’ll tell you guys the trip of union absolute truth there’s no study
there’s no evidence out there that says that you will be unsuccessful to go to
work out favors to these forever the ways you pose the question of course
which is that how does it make you feel not uh… how do you feel if some people
believe this or the fact that this is you know the way exposes the waves
believed in all that stuff it was like this the fact how do you feel about this
fact and that’s where you know she cannot to completely lost performance review but the thing is maybe that is the the direction or the perception people
have made simply because um… that’s that lives in the video
they’re getting funding this telephone rather than a four or
there’s certain alum alarm there recognizable or have enough money just
to get back to school and put towards this uh… like usc it’s coming to the
private school so sometimes different animal but you know when you get actors or producers or or directors that puts money into the film school the film
schools they considered the one of the best level is for some of the intend to
continue to learn from from different people and you see all this is one famous
professor harding producer director came in and and guests the biggest professor there for one
class and i think i had that mountains so it’s what was going to bring people
in the minimum wage is cool act so that’s
the success factor because of the schools successful in making money or recently in a more mora markets and people are planning to
get into the film school usc doesn’t want to do at the films were going to run for the
front but i think that the making films that that somebody over it said you know cal
state workers is that they were out there doesn’t have any night idea about i don’t know i think what has kind of
happened in the higher education system israel we started looking at colleges as
either name-brand and or you know while mark brendor uniting in
some people are looking at at uh… like usc usc has established a
great name for itself so of course people are gonna think of
on my god u_s_ c_ span school it’s attached that’s why i need to go and look at it fell victim to that as
well and i thought u_s_ sees uh… annenberg school of
communications the best score when might you know that that’s really
what right and i’ll i said look in the only way
that i will ever succeed in the field of journalism is if i go usc and when i found out that they wouldn’t
transfer my uh… units are the fact that he just couldn’t afford it out was
crash the bag you know you had to go to the difference
when you realize that’s not really the case people are trying to sell you
something the doesn’t really exist usd is a great
school if you can afford it you should go there ok but debt you also have to
keep in mind that there are other options out there maybe they’re not
ranked as high was interesting doesn’t it doesn’t mean anything there’s so many
different things that factor into success ok uh… and where you get your
degree is just one of those factors and it’s not a factor they wanted that you
do do you agree uncertainty lastly you know if you get
it through our marine overstay but many have risen here we have a good
thing for an interna record review may have gotten into things that they may be you
know where you get interested from her from what’s going on to writes this one of the things um… that yes he was good at we had
uh… large of proof place to go into a shifted to
get and in some warm summer actually horrible united for the fox foxsports the worst in terms of my life out those
all sound like a lot have risen to the launching pad for my career and it sucks
ads tools horrible who’s been because there was a waste of time complete with
that in front of the people’s names forward
without calling around now he stuck last month foxsports under the bus but
it would be recall who could do was put you out there you know soon success has been some half way you
end up and how you figure that opportunities come from people doing go to college enough the successful it’s their driving their
motivation like i said there’s somebody different factors another factor that i
think it’s still underrated is oppressions ambition personality and likability and
i’m not talking about you note entering at popularity contest i’m talking about
whether or not you’re well rugged individual when you go to those
interviews that some employers are gonna be looking for a pain a lot of employers
at especially in this day and age don’t look at your resume and say of my god you went to uh… idon’t know
emerson college in boston rather than usd for journalism so we’re
not we’re not going except you or we have been accepted because they like
emerson about any of the year it beyond i think that they don’t care now in two different for different types
of career that would be a great and for instance if you wanna be a lawyer if you’re going to
get your degree from columbia uh… verses i think there’s a
university called southwestern in one that was a lot of people that got their degree
from columbia are gonna have a an upper hand that’s just the way it works with
lock but uh… you know when it comes to things like journalism when it comes to
education our people drive me crazy when they get
their education degrees from or their social work degrees from like
usc don’t do it valujet affirmative regional also and of course of this business field but i think is reason
sometimes if you go to school in california and a new plan for jobs in
los angeles people oppose that that are hiring a lot of times but
not always the case butting recognized that’s cool i call you just emory issues
i want to use your effort here he is the orders according to u_s_a_ so there’s
always a familiarity is is right district and as part of it is to get a
job a lot of times sometimes it’s strictly based on armor that or you know if that’s cool it’s the
symbol of that or i have had a friend with its cool was that they stayed for
an ipod for an interview stupid because this guy i graduate has gone through it radio did before and he said oh i went to the i want to
have to read a story for you it and i was is me in the or the country station permanent and expenses paid trip so it would you want to talk to me it
was really odd right but it’s the also the salmonella vagas you even know what
was going on sunday on your energy like whatever’s put it down anna quadrupling in that neighborhood you never know who you’re talking to you
and yours cell right about that real quick story
uh… about c_b_s_ cell di started out with c_b_s_ radio right and i backed up i was going to be my
dream job and i had to be exact same feelings towards you because as you do
toward fox uh… foxsports as the c_b_s_ radio l_a_ whatever on an
ira going in for the interview and i just remember hendrik pending the news
director my resume and she didn’t even look at it she just had to send out
thanks signing not why don’t you talk to me
about indians so you never know seem even know where i
graduated from my job interview here if you like ta consisted of dade asking you
whether or not i can come in at three in the morning and not with it date can you
come in a period of mourning yes i can tell kathy on monday by you see what exactly do you want me to
do with the now repute i don’t have an idea about it it in it stage i think you have
