Well, and it's true that you can get a college degree without getting very educated. I rather doubt you can get a Grinnell college degree without getting well-educated, but it may be possible. Still, anyone who has not gone through the experience (or has done it at a large University where it's easier to coast through to pick up a diploma) is more likely to devalue the experience than someone who's done it.

Rather like how anyone who hasn't actually been in combat doesn't really know what you learn and experience by being there.

Intelligence is defined in many different ways. Your fund of knowledge is typically filled by education, whether it's formal or self-taught. Some individuals seem to have the ability to memorize huge chunks of info, others can use their funds to maximum potential through synthesis and analysis. Hey, I just sounded smart. ;) But then, aren't you involved in AI research?

I haven't met a Grinnellian I haven't respected.
