[quote]No one is supposed to feel bad about anything anymore. It's either the person being unique or it's another person's or entity's fault.

First, most degrees don't matter. Outside of Pre-Med and Law, degrees are just a proof of determination and the ability to finish something relatively successfully.
There's a reason that the first three degrees were the BA, the MD, the JD. That's it. The BA was extremely variable. All the crap to...

The show's length of run and structure forced them to put an overabundance of problems (and subsequent reactions) onto young Cory. I mean, that's where the story came from, so he can come off as a major passive aggressive dweeb sometimes.
Still a good show and still a good character....
