    I'm pretty sure there's plenty of genius involved.

    My cousin graduated from a community college. I'm still convinced that most community colleges will give low functioning retards an Associate of Arts degree.

    I started at a community college, but went simply to save money on my general ed. They're pretty valueless unless you want to go into a specific industry that works with them, or plan to transfer.

    I think they do offer some value if you train for a specific job. There are a ton of local cops that went to CC and got degrees in Criminal Justice, and did security work for awhile. They eventually end up getting a slot in the academy because after they fill the first half of each class at the academy with guys from the military and with 4 year degrees, they will still need more officer candidates. A general arts degree, meh.....puts you ahead of the people that have no degree.

    The one I went to was decent size (~15,000 students) and they had special deals with certain car manufacturers for their auto program, a pretty good building inspector program, deals with police and fire agencies for people who took those courses, and so on.

    Personally I had no idea where I wanted to go when I got out of high school, so I moved away, went to community college, and worked/partied for a few years. I was able to get my general ed out of the way and take a bunch of courses cheaply to figure out what I wanted to do. I ended up with around 96 credits that probably cost around $1500 (not counting books/living expenses). That would have probably costed over $20,000 at a 4-year school, and most of the classes were transferable.

    He still has tiny genitals and too little time to find a hole to stick them in.
