It seems that people with BS degrees are favored for Unix admin jobs.
Definitely for programming. But why were they hunting a full time
student? Did they think you would quit school for the right job?

I saw a story on TV a long time ago about two people who quit MIT to do
Web design. They were being paid over 100Gs each! The logic was that
school is supposed to prepare them to go out and make money. Well, they
got the money first. I wonder what they're doing now.
