I'm sorry, I didn't anticipate that you couldn't connect the dots.

Non-degree holding hyper-intelligent people are very rare, and should not be an example of how to live your life, just like the chances of getting killed by a shark when you're swimming in the ocean.

He already sees me on there all day. My name isn't even listed on my departmental website. Bunch of idiots here.


You were like the best, at like FORESTRY. Or like Sociology or stuff like that.


If it was engineering, real sciences (Physics/Chem/Bio), or even business, that would be far more impressive. Why? Because they are more competitive, and at least engineering/real sciences are far more difficult. I'd say business is too. Ecology or forestry are not competitive nor difficult. Let's face it. How many kids want to go into forestry vs. maybe like an MBA or something.


Also funny how I didn't see any undergrad transcripts. I wonder why Josh Welch?

Well like every thread I've ever made this one started off well and degenerated into a complete waste of bandwidth. I never learn.

lol talk about complete bullshit.

maybe in your asian academic driven world that's the case but in the real world it's hardly true. i know lots of college drop outs and even high school drop outs who are ultra successful in their various fields or mediums.

i'm not condoning dropping out of school and it's not a path i'd encourage someone to take but it's definitely far from rare to see 'hyper intelligent' drop outs.

It's mostly BIO you dipshit. You have no concept of graduate academics, and undergraduate transcripts aren't available online for GVSU if you were a freshman before 1999. Might even be 2000. I don't have a set.

I'm sure they're clever and well-off but successful and hyper intelligent/bastions of business success/on the forefront of the avante-garde are different things.

Did you get a BS in Biology? No
Did you get a MS in Biology? No
In your transcript, do I see more Biology or more other things? More other things.




Yet it's mostly Biology. GTFO.


As I said earlier, Ecology/Forestry folks are mostly guys who weren't smart enough for Bio, and Bio wannabes.


Just like you. You wish it was Biology. Pretend all you want. But it's FORESTRY you are getting a Masters in, not Biology. Can't change the facts.

Plenty of intelligent people who never even stepped foot on a campus. Which is why I asked for professional success, academics, anything from GP.

Don't know about you guys, but all the school drop outs here in Toronto are pretty much idiots I can't see anyone dropping out of school and being better off than someone else UNLESS they revolutionalize the world a la Google, Youtube, Facebook, etc.

One of the most brilliant people I've ever met dropped out of college when we were both sophomores. The structure of higher education just wasn't his thing. Truth is he was way smarter than most of his profs. Walked away from a Morehead Scholarship too. (full ride at UNC)
