Biggest Lies People Heard About College

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about the biggest lies that people heard about college. As it turns out, sometimes college isn't as tough and completely soul-grinding as it's made out to be. Or, on the flip side, folks share that it's not necessary to go to college to avoid finding oneself in an unwanted life situation.

Entitled College Slacker Demands Classmate's Notes, Gets Denied

One of the more annoying parts of working hard at school is having to deal with people who don't take it seriously and just try to skate through without learning anything. The world has a lot of entitled morons that seem resistant to caring about the people around them. The fact that this person doesn't do their homework and just expects notes is frustrating enough. Maybe it's for the best that they probably won't end up as someone's doctor...

Most teachers are sensible people who have their students best interest in mind, but there are others who just want to see the future burn. Teachers can be incredibly weird like that.
