The Wall Street Journal says big U.S. companies, when hiring for entry-level jobs, are picking bachelors' degree graduates of big state universities over Ivy Leaguers and other grads of more elite schools. Many recruiters said they need people with practical skills, rather than a more liberal-arts background. Would you take the same approach? Do you think your school prepared you well for whichever form of success you sought? In the long run, does it matter what you studied in college, and where you went?

The Wall Street Journal dismisses critical reasoning as a 'soft' skill. Huh? Critical reasoning is the foundation skill for professional success. The specific skills needed in any job will change many times, and critical reasoning is the ability to 'figure stuff out' long beyond classroom days.
