Just goes to show that, no matter how educated people may be, they can still make dropout-level decisions.

Arrogant liberal's believe if you are educated you will think as they?

"ALL were bogus, made up, based on "doctored" numbers & etc."

Yes. Any facts that you don't agree with are "doctored" or "biased". Look at the source. It is from FOX Business. You think FOX is biased? Get a grip.

1. It doesn't mean democrats are smarter, nor does it mean more educated people vote for Obama. All it means is that states that vote for Obama are more educated. Obama won states with urban areas because urban areas are where you find minorities and unions. Well urban areas are also where you find high concentration of universities as well as high concentrations of educated people whether they are republicans or democrats.

It is fairly simple you don't need to get your panties in a bunch.

Look through this thread at how many conservatives are demonizing college just like Rick Santorum, THAT is the republican party's real problem. They use "intellectuals" as a slam.

Oh heavens! Not this AGAIN!

Endless varieties of this came out after George Bush won, especially the second time.
ALL were bogus, made up, based on "doctored" numbers & etc.

BUT several IABers thought they were TOTALLY TRUE! Still do to this day, apparently!

Can someone help me with elkingo's chart? I don't understand how to divide "Most Conservative States by SAT Scores". The way it's phrased it like dividing the prettiest girls at the party by the number of buttons they have.

@Elkingo: Oh, it makes sense. I'm just surprised a uni would let you use your english credit 3 times. Usually a uni will require you to take a different language/humanities requirement to fulfil the credits needed. If you got away with using certain electives 3 times to get 3 degrees, I'm just surprised that uni isn't trying to make more money by limiting the transfer of credits to subsequent degrees.

elkingo

The chart you posted is totally crap dude.

1. It is "Most Conservative States divided by SAT Scores". They rate a state's conservativeness and then divide that by average SAT score, which is meaningless. Start rolling over states. Average SAT in Texas is 989 while Minnesota's average SAT is 1,199. Yet Texas is darker.

2. This site, or at least their SAT score data is f.ucked. Click SAT scorers and look at the map. It is pure common sense that that can't possibly be accurate.

3. The fact that you sent this link to show how smart conservative states are, which it doesn't do at all, simply shows you can't read a simple chart or data and proves EXACTLY the opposite of what you intended. No offense.

Here.

Conservative states also have the highest SAT combined scores.

Equating intelligence with a degree with political affiliation is really silly.

I also worked on all three at the same time -- my undergrad took me 5 years, but I always took like 15-21 hours per semester.

I also graduated with a 3.7 overall GPA (3.9 in Psychology).

@patchgrabber

I completed the basic requirements -- intro courses, health courses, required cultural ones..

then I completed all the courses for a psychology major -- which I think is 21 courses total -- not 100% sure it has been 3 years.

I also completed the courses for a religious studies degree, those didn't over lap my psych courses, but I didn't have to "retake" intro to biology for example.

I also completed the courses for a history degree.. those didn't overlap my religious studies or psychology courses.

However, for all three I was not required to take English 101 3 times. Make sense?

Dunning–Kruger effect means that all the "dumb" states will just assume this means that more education make you wrong.

Myself, I completes the core curriculum, and then the courses required for a major in psychology, history, and religion.

Wait, so they let you re-use class credits for three separate degrees? I was able to transfer only electives in my undergrad towards my second undergrad degree. The second one still took almost 3 years to complete even then. The uni I attended doesn't even allow you to get 2 arts or 2 science degrees, due to the sharing of credits (which means less money for the uni).

Yeah... here is a partial list of published items from UK's health sciences alone: clicky.

@davy "Elkingo (being slightly cheeky here), but I see that none of your anecdotal degrees are in mathematics and statistics..."

I study statistics quite a bit davy, and you know that! Lol. I find it somewhat annoying that poor stats get posted, when in truth there is a lot of missing data:

(My major point) In Kentucky there may be less degrees, but that leaves out many sub-items.

People in Kentucky, like me, who do go to college often achieve more than 1 degree - these stats didn't account for that.

Many of the jobs in Kentucky require technical training (not a college degree, but requires years of schooling post-high school)

Also notice that the majority of the states listed that voted for Romney are also below the Mason-Dixon line. The amount people who voted for Romney strictly because hes white, is much higher than you realize. Sadly, racism is still a major issue in the US.

@davy "You get a separate degree for each thing you studied over there? Or she spent her degree program studying those subjects?"

I can't tell if you are trolling or being serious, so I will explain. We achieved the curriculum for a bachelor's degree in each of those separate areas. Myself, I completes the core curriculum, and then the courses required for a major in psychology, history, and religion. I want to say I have almost 200 hours in when I completed my undergraduate work. I now have 51 hours in toward a Master's degree.
