Discussion on: Do you have a university degree?

I have a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science from a university in Romania. It has helped me get a good job (Yahoo!, Google) because it's a degree (it enabled me to immigrate to the Silicon Valley and pass interview screenings), but not thanks to what I learned in while pursuing that degree.

Pretty much everything I learned, I learned in high school (back in the 90's when CS education was serious in Romanian high schools), and by self-teaching.

90% of my college degree was a waste of time.
