It also breaks down the results by type of school, showing that students at liberal arts colleges on average get a heavier and more challenging workload than those at universities with graduate schools

Reeeeeeally? I think its more that whiny liberal arts majors spend more time fluffing surveys to try to convince people they they actually work for their degrees.

They definitely pay a lot of money for their degrees. And they might work really hard for them. But the end result is the same...they end up with a completely useless degree.

My experiences with the liberal arts side had a lot more to do with writing what the professor wanted to hear than using critical thinking.

I was always amazed how dumb the liberal arts folks in my humanities electives were. I think there was some rule that stated you had to dress up like you were on your way to or from a club, even at 8 in the morning. What was even better is when I saw people getting off the subway coming from a club and heading straight to 8 AM class.

I thought the liberal arts kids looked like hipsters, hippies, and grunge rockers, and the business majors looked like they were going to a night club.

Hey I resemble these remarks.

Try having to do both at the sample time. Always had to remind myself what class I was working on. The LAS BS and technical writing.

...which in itself requires "critical" thinking ;)
