Monroe College Graduate - IDIOCY

Ok so I wrote about how individuals need to go to college and receive a college education.  Well, as I stated earlier going to school does not MEAN you are more intelligent from those that did not.  Here's an example of an idiot that went to college and graduated. There is this girl out there that has graduated from Monroe College and is suing her alma mater for 70k (her tuition) and 2k for compensation (72k in total for those not so quick with the math) for not being able to find a job for the past 3 months.  She is upset that with her 2.7 GPA (and perfect attendance) that she can't find a job and that the school didn't help her FIND ONE.  (Check out the link for the full article: http://tinyurl.com/mkduox)

Dear Miss Trina Thompson of Bronx, NY –

First off, I would like to congratulate you for obtaining a degree in IT.  Good job, clap clap, wonderful! Celebrate!  Secondly I would like to ask you WHERE IN YOUR RIGHT MIND DO YOU THINK THE SCHOOL HAS AN OBLIGATION TO MAKE SURE YOU GET A JOB.  Have you NOT been watching the news?  WE ARE IN A RECESSION!!! I believe the unemployment rate is approximately 10% and increasing.  I am not saying I have THE BEST GPA in college, but I also didn't come out thinking that solely my GPA was going to carry me to another job.  Girl, you had a 2.7 GPA.  Not so great actually.  Have you not thought that in this time and day that you need at least a 3.0 or higher plus experience, ie internships?  The school provides resources for you to use for your job search, however they are NOT OBLIGATED to provide you employment.  We are all out here trying to maintain.  How about you get out there like everyone else and keep applying?  No one wants to work at McDonalds or payless as you claim; but please don't think you are ENTITLED to a damn thing in this world.  Everything you receive you need to realize doesn't come without hard work.  So keep looking like the thousands of other people out there.  I had a friend that graduated with a MUCH higher GPA in Mechanical engineering and couldn't find a job post graduation; you know what she did…SHE WENT TO GRAD SCHOOL.  So stop complaining and let go of your bitter lil lawsuit and look at your options.  If all else fails, get a job at payless, McDonalds, who ever will hire you because truthfully ANY money coming in is better than NONE coming in. 

Have a Nice day!

  1. Dear Gemini,
    This is a very insightful and realistic response to this girl's idiotic stand. I think you have a great way with words and you seem to think alot about your "rant topics" before writing! You'd make a great journalist (from my 2 years at school for journalism...I don't know a whole lot! :-)) Keep up the good writing and I'll keep reading!

    By the way, this is the "not so" all american girl!~ :-*)
