Dexter Goes To College | Robot Chicken | adult swim

Man #3:
So, Dexter, tell me why you
think you’re M.I.T. material. Surely you are joking!
I see. Trying to justify
your salary. Well,
I was a boy genius. I built a secret laboratory
at age seven where I created
brilliant inventions. Right, but I don’t see
any extracurriculars here. Um, extracurriculars?
I’m sorry, I’m confused. Like, you know, sports,
clubs, student council, a single kiss
from a girl. I can clone
human beings. I’ve made a time machine
and a time expansion helmet. So no extracurriculars? [ Groans angrily ]
I’ll show you extracurriculars. [ Laughs ] ♪♪ Dexter, Dexter,
guess what?! I got into M. I. T.,
Harvard, and Yale because I’m so
well-rounded! What were the last two? Harvard and Yale! Harvard and Yale.
[ Laughs ]

  1. Huh. You know dexter did go to college at one point in the series and burned out since he wasn't able to balance out the study/party times.

  2. well building robots, a full laboratory, and having an IQ similar to Albert Einstein at birth would get him into any college with full scholarship

  3. Colleges have become clubs and the interviewers are bouncers out front under the directive to let in only the most "rounded" applicants. This way new college hopefuls have a greater desire to get in when they look at all the potential easy sex and "life experience" available behind the door and velvet ropes. Being intelligent is nice but ironically, University isn't as cool a part of culture when it's just for smart people.
    The modern appeal of college/business model:
    more fun + more "experiences" + less student responsibility = more students believing it is necessary/more $$$ for Universities (which is currently largely funded by the tax payers). Thus, the more "fun" college stays, the less likely they will ever lose demand for their limited quantity of available spots and tuition is justifiably raised higher until the colleges expand and the cash flow repeats.
    Modern Education (if Non-STEM): conformity by Degrees…

    Have a great day!

  4. we're definitely one step closer to a Jimmy Nuetron sketch on Robot Chicken where the real reason his cranium is large is because of a brain tumor he has.

  5. I'm not sure if it's just me, but I strongly disagree with a lot of the comments here. I don't believe that studying and getting good grades should be enough for these ivy leagues (although dexter should have gotten in undoubtedly).

  6. so much for Dexter being some genius, he should've known that they couldn't/wouldn't take him because of the extra curriculum

  7. Hate this idea of extra curricular activities for certain college just put what required for the field for eg sport u do need some background in it so on so forth

  8. Proof that college is a joke. Why let in the geniuses when you could let in the more "well rounded" people to make it look like you've got a "diverse" student population.

  9. Let's face it college is a big scam you spend thousands of dollars all that crap to get a piece of paper that get you nothing bragging rights as you flip burgers
