Could someone with an IQ (intelligence quotient) of ~100 do well in college? This article claims that college is reserved only for people with IQ's between 120-140, and that someone with +/- dead average intelligence would either struggle or fail in college because the "rigorously difficult" coursework is geared for intellectuals and people with superior intellect. http://www.joannejacobs.com/2007/01/...h-for-college/ [Broken] Throughout the world, there are millions upon millions of people attending college, and I seriously doubt that many of them have IQ's above the "genius" 140 mark. The IQ bell curve claims that almost 3/4 of ALL people have an IQ between 90-110. Although I have to admit that studies such as physics, mathematics, engineering, and the hard sciences are definitely NOT for the feeble-minded. Is it really true that universities are reserved only for intellectuals? And people with average intelligence (the large bulk of the population) are really not capable of attending? I should say that college degrees have become nothing more than a litmus test for employers, and a college education no longer has anything to do with learning/knowledge acquisition. Today, most college graduates (bachelors degree) are tens of thousands of dollars in debt and cannot find a job. It is important to note that there are many affordable degrees, courses, and certifications offered by community colleges, and vocational/technical schools, which can earn you a job making much more money than a college graduate. For example, there are some plumbers and electricians who make $85,000. While some college graduates working at an office make $35,000 per year.
