Yes, many universities are academic pursuits. I felt promises were made that didn’t materialize such help finding a job post graduation. Trade school or not, I don’t think universities should say they help with finding jobs and providing useful skills for the job market if they don’t. It’s false advertising. However there’s nothing wrong with purely academic pursuits as long as that’s made clear.
