    You know the stereotypes... According to the oh-so-educated folks in places like Taxacusetts, etc., we're all a bunch of knuckle-draggers who, while we're not sitting on the front porch throwing empty PBR cans at passing joggers, ride around in windowless pickup trucks shooting at harmless motorcyclists...

    So... How much education do we have here...

    Ivy league master's educated, professional, christian, heterosexual, happily married, father of two, redneck, gun-toting, right-wing extremist....

    "In college", I guess. Have enough credits for two bachelor's ( Philosophy, Poli Sci) But the "liberal arts" ( fine arts, sciences) are lacking to actually get a degree. Been working on that since '81, so mebbe I'm a lost cause.:rolleyes:

    UK bachelor's degree and two UK accountancy qualifications - which I am told equate to master's level.

    I write training material for accountants at that level and for a UK distance learning MBA.

    I think there's a bit of redneck in me ...

    How about a catagory for those of us who left college because we started making too much money to continue to pay for tuition to listen to theories that had nothing to do with what was going on in the real world. Nah nevermind, too long to fit on a line :D .

    The Curse Of Education

    Greg is right on target. I got my bachelor's in Molecular Biology, and now I'm a starving research assistant/ writer. If only I'd dropped out and run away from home at 16 and stolen CP/M before Gates did. Bill Gates, Michael Dell, Larry Ellison... they knew the secret. If you value your life, read the following article. Then go on to be an uneducated success like Greg instead of a despondent, degreed loser like me:

    Not all that much here I'm afraid. I was so bored in high school that the thought of 4 more years of drivel kept me from going to college even on a full ride scholarship. Associate in electronics in '79. Worked well enough to get me all the toys and travel that I really wanted.:D And keeps the family in clothes, eats, and comfortably under roof. That IS the point isn't it?:cool:

    Don't ya think "tech" or "working on college" would cover this, depending on the coursework offered? Military education isn't necessarily accredited in its own right and would skew the statistics. Obviously, those who completed higher ed through the military should just put down their degree level.

    Just to point out that both Doctors and Lawyers have "doctorates", one is a medical doctorate and one a Juris doctorate; PhD is a doctorate in philosophy (in whatever field)- otherwise known a "Piled Higher and Deeper".
    But they're all doctorate degrees.

    And the kids I see coming through the technical (community) college I work for are graduating and getting jobs paying MUCH more than me. More power to them!

    Professional student seeks class.

    I've got about 300 college units and on top of that, paper to show for it. However, you'd never guess that I went to school because the only paper on my walls are art prints of ships & airplanes. I suppose I could add some letters behind my name, but my pop taught me better. Of three men walking down the street, any two of them can be my teacher.

    Don't forget Pharm.D.

    Still not all these doctoral degrees are equal. Pharm.D is a 5 year program, usually, right out of HS. The other doctorates, save J.D., are often 4 years or more and all require a bachelor's as prerequisite. J.D. is three years and not, IIRC, the terminal degree in law, which I've seen billed a LL.M or some such.

    Right now I only have a Bachelor of Science in Psychology with a few extra credits beyond what is needed to graduate (not much extra, 7 to be exact plus several education courses that I audited instead of taking for credit). I start a graduate level certificate in "Professional Counseling" in just under a week (if I keep on with the same school for my masters all but one course will transfer directly into the program and one is only an elective). After that I hope to start in a Psy.D. (Doctor of Psychology) or Ph.D. program in Clinical or Counseling Psychology in fall 04 and barring that I'll do a decent Clinical Psych MA program first (and then go into the doctorate).

    So long answer to a short question: Bachelor's degree only but soon I'll have more.

    I must be a distant relative of 4v50 Gary. I have attended all kinds of classes over the years (and the list is still growing), college, trade, military, etc. and have a wide assortment of credit hours. Just can't bring myself to do those "required" courses to get the degrees.

    My wish is to win the lottery so I can in fact become a professional student.

    I have a Bachelor's degree in History. I just graduated last December. I planned on going for a masters in the same, but I decided not to once I realized that it would be a waste of time and money.

    I am now considering law school, a career in journalism, or going down to the VoTech and getting formal training as a carpenter. I have always loved wood work.

    College degrees are so de-valued these days, it is sad...

    I work in the University Library at present, and to see some of the "thinkers" that come in here it is easy to see why.
