>My experience with the CS degree requirement was that it's BS.

Going to fan some flames here but honestly the biggest difference I noticed between the US and continental Europe in this regard is the US companies seem a lot more interested in work experience (how it should be IMO) and the Euro companies really wanted school transcripts and care a lot more about grades even after you have been in industry for almost a decade. Might have to do with it being so much easier (and cheaper) to get rid of an non performer in the US so less concern up front on degrees and titles.
