well i think at most high schools you do only one course of each subject in each school year. so, say you do one math course. at university you can do FOUR (or more!) math courses in each TERM! & you can do that for at least a couple years. that's how far beyond the 'average person' a university graduate is, assuming they actually learned something.

i assume it would be similar for english, history, etc students also. a girl i work with is just starting her 4th year of an english degree, & does roughly 1 novel, or shakespeare play (or some other equivalent) each week, in 5 courses, each term. that's something like 45-55 books per term she studies. she says she's collected/studied some 600 books so far & she still has 1 year to go. how many people do you know have 600 books on just one subject?

I recommend asking them LOTS of questions! Use them as a resource and learn from them. You may also discover their understanding is superficial.

ya maybe they're total bs-ers, and like to think they're really impressing people when talking about that stuff.Tide said:
