  1. I agree that more education is better, however, as an autodidact, i have to say that learning within an institution is absolutely not all you need in life.

My over the phone interviews are excellent, but when I come in the office for a face to face interview, the excitement level has truly dropped by then. But it is something that our country has to work on, treating everyone equally.
