And I totally agree on this point, I even stated I felt general
education was important.  But is only 1/3 or even 1/4 of your classes
load relating to your major really that common?  Many of you have
degrees, so was your program that off balance?  What about technical
schools like ITT.  Not them specifically, but the type.  I'm just trying
to determine if I came accross really poor programs or if that is just
how it is everywhere.
