  • Anyone have personal experience with especially good or bad colleges in USA? Public or private? Would you consider a non-Catholic school? Any ones that should be avoided at all costs? I'm an alumnus of The University of Iowa and fought strong secularism throughout my college days. What environments are better?

  • I went to a small college for 2 years (public) and while the liberalism is not as strong as in the bigger Ivy League colleges it is defeinitely there. Incidently however a few of the liberal professors did like a few of the things I said, especially in regards to free trade and the idiocies of the GOP (which is a given).

    All public schools are secular but the level of anti-christian sentiment may depend on what degree program you are following.  One of my kids went to a huge public university for an engineering degree and never encountered any "anti" Christian propaganda.  But I suspect that would not be true in the liberal arts departments.  Of course his school wasn't "pro" faith and morals either but at least they weren't rabid humanists trying to shove it down his throat.

  • You are better off at a public school than a bad Catholic one.

  • - The majority of college degrees go wasted, are never used in the profession one ends up in.

    - Today, college is very expensive, and most people will never make enough money from the degree to even breakeven.

    - 50% of a BS degree is just a repeating of a good highschool education. This is done in order to milk more money from the students

    - If people would consider on the job experience, working, as college, where you get paid $20,000-$50,000 per year in not having to pay for college, plus say minimum wage of $15,000 per year, you are really making $35-$50,000 per year. And look for work where you can learn and grow, at the end of 4 years you are way ahead of the college graduate in real world experience.

    All of that said, some professions require a degree, therefore, either you avoid those professions, or you have to go to college.

    College is expensive and the cost to reward ratio is lousy today, therefore, one should look for alternatives and really think things out.
