The real world can be really really different than that which we are told in college. At least for me it was, anyway. The degree I received is very helpful, very much so. It got my foot through the door. It's on my wall, and to this day I don't know how I passed so many Calculus and Physics classes. But this post is all about what was taught compared to what was used. And just to mention, the calculus and physics have not been used yet. One day. I'll say this now, this may have had more to do with my schools curriculum than anything else. For the most part it was very linear and theoretical with almost no practicality. Some schools may offer fantastic classes where apps are build and items are 3D printed. If so, feel free to send me a message and let me know about the school ^_^ .
