It does, however, indicate that a person has pursued a formal course of
study over a period of several years. A college degree doesn't guarantee
writing competence, but I'd be more willing to give a chance to someone
who has the intellectual discipline necessary to complete a degree than
to someone who hasn't demonstrated such discipline.

I know this is flamebait, but I'll stick by my guns on this one.

Steve
