I have a degree in software engineering, I didnt attend lectures, crammed the night before, and leached others for labs, as a result I learned nothing

I can't remember what country you are from, but in the UK, every fucking Tom, Dick and Harry is being packed off to university these days.

So many kids are going to Uni that employers are finding almost all applicants for jobs have degrees; hence all these reading/numerical comprehension tests employers have came up with to seperate the wheat from the chaff. And because institutions just want to churn out results, degrees themselves are often lacking in testing the application of knowledge - leaving postgradcels with little preparation for these sorts of employer tests.

Life is so fucking futile.

I agree, I assumed my uni would weed me out since its considered the best school in engineering in my country (canada), but somehow I was able to graduate with a gpa slightly above a 3 without retaining much of what I learned

British universities are a joke. You only need to go to college for 3 years in england to get a bachelors degree. I can get a bachelors degree from a diploma mill in 2 weeks. :lol: But that's not the same as getting a real 4 year bachelors degree.

Most people who go into fields with technical interviews will download big logs of commonly asked interview questions and then drill them over and over until they feel ready.

well programming is not about regurgitating a bunch of facts from an encyclopedia, some employers have even asked me to write algorithms on the spot

You simply haven't found your way yet. Try something adventurous! How about on-line business? They're just doing the gambling business. It's like a disease - you can't give up playing and it happens you win. Sometimes :) I believe in money-making stories of more down-to-earth style.
