I'm sorry, but at least half of college and university diplomas are worthless, signifying only that someone has wasted four or more years of their life. Your failure to recognize that not all diplomas are equal is a monumental mistake. I am involved in my employer's hiring process and am amazed at how poorly educated many graduates are. We have resorted to giving applicants a quiz covering only material that should have been learned in high school and find most college graduates fail miserably. The time they spent in college has prepared them for nothing better than parking cars or bussing tables. The time and money they spent was a totally wasted.
