Just how high did you get????
"Knowledge is good"-quote on the statue of Emil Faber at the beginning of Animal House

An education is a wonderful thing, but actually putting it to use it the key.  So many people these days see college as four or more years that they actually do not have to join the work force.  To me that just means your parents are spending way to much money on a babysitter.  So, in my continuing quest to find out more about my fellow Qers I would like to know, what level of schooling have you completed?

Graduated with bachelors from Bradley Univ in 91...... and have taken a few masters level courses throughout the last 15 years... but doubt I'll get an MBA ... as my interests have changed as I get older. If I had the time and $$$ ... chef school and / or pilot school would be my next challenges! Or perhaps GM school to replace ted Thompson in Green bay!

I didn't quit, I was "asked to quit".  I had a little too much fun in college.  4 years of playing baseball and partying, not enough time in the classroom.

Graduated with an Assoc. Degree from MCC and did 2 semesters at Wayne State in hopes of getting a teaching degree, but ran out of money and patience.  I'm going on my 10th year working for Kinko's/FedexKinko's/Fedex Office, but I want to go back to school for business to make more money.

Funny you should ask this poll today

After high school I immediately joined the workforce. Worked 10 years making minimal $. Tried to go to college at night for a couple of years but didn't get far. Then I met my future wife, who convinced me to get a job I loved doing, so I went to a technical school and got a degree after 1 year. Two jobs and 9 years later I now make over $100,000 a year and still have time to screw around on things like FanIQ, so not going straight to college has worked out pretty well for me. But its always kind of bothered me not having a degree. So yesterday was my first day back in college where I hope to at least get my AA in about a year.

Since I didn't have an option I'll probably have to pick the mandatory Lola choice.

After high schooI, I crammed a 4-year bachelor's degree in about 5 1/2 years and stayed employed, but broke.  At 35 yrs old, I went back to school and got a 2-yr. certificate in Process Operating and have had a fantastic, good-paying job ever since.  And yes, I'm still broke, but I have a lot more fun being that way!

Well...basically it boils down like this:

Her name was Lola, she was a showgirl
With yellow feathers in her hair and a dress cut down to there
She would meringue and do the cha-cha
And while she tried to be a star, Tony always tended bar
Across a crowded floor, they worked from 8 till 4
They were young and they had each other
Who could ask for more?
EVERYBODY NOW!!!!!!!!
At the Copa (CO!), Copacabana (Copacabana)
The hottest spot north of Havana (here)
At the Copa (CO!), Copacabana
Music and passion were always the fashion
At the Copa....they fell in love

(Copa Copacabana)

His name was Rico, he wore a diamond
He was escorted to his chair, he saw Lola dancin' there
And when she finished, he called her over
But Rico went a bit too far, Tony sailed across the bar
And then the punches flew and chairs were smashed in two
There was blood and a single gun shot
But just who shot who?

What???  Wait...no I'll stop!!!  I SWEAR! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!  (Mooser is temporarily unavailable)

Always wanted to be a teacher. After high school, I went to a community college--- got my Associates degree in history (I had the credits, why not get the paper), transferred to a state college to get my BA in Liberal Studies and teaching credential, worked for 6 years, and then decided last year to go back a get my Masters in Technology in Education----------I will be done this May, and then that is it for me, and it will be just teaching from here on end-------(unless the Kings call offering me a job that is. )

I went to college, several times - but never for what I really wanted to do and that seems to be the key. I have associates degrees in Architectural drafting (for my dad) accounting and business management (just because it was easy) and additional work towards a business degree possibly accounting. Then I realized I really hate working in an office with a bunch of stiff neck tight wads and prefer working with kids - so I will go back and get an education degree eventually. Oh, all on my dime!

#40 | 2076 days ago

Graduated from High School with four Honor Societies, took one year of college and realized my courses in high school were harder and that it was a total waste of money.  I have never had any desire to do one thing in life- there's so much out there to do and be.  I've been a Superior/District Court clerk, legal secretary,  private detective, cert. nursing assistant, have been a licensed riding instructor for over 30 years- that's just the tip of the iceberg.  I usually keep a job on average two years and then I am ready to move on.  I have had more adventures and done more silly but satifying things in my life so far than most people ever will.  I am an enigma to my parents- my father was a Det Lt in the State Police, my mother was a female Constable, one brother works for the electric company and one just retired from his Police Dept.

I have never had any difficulty getting jobs.  Having a piece of paper that you paid five or six figures for does not make  you smart.  Or happy.

Live life for today- you're gonna be dead a long time!!!

I'm still in college.  I screwed up my freshman year, went to a community college, and returned to Allegheny.  I then ran into some personal problems and had to take a leave of absence.  I had to change my major, but all is working out well for me finally.  I have one more year and I'm done.

got my Bachelors while in the Marine Corps- took advantage of that G.I. Bill!!  Too bad that most military members don't do the same thing- I think it's stupid not to. For Christs Sake- you put your life on the line in defense of this Country, at least take advantage of the benefits!

 Have an AA, about a years worth of units away from a Bachelors. I'm not enrolled now but I will go back and get my Bachelors then my Masters.
#44 | 2059 days ago

Went to SCCC when i was 31 for a yr toward AA, had to quit.  Hubby hated the idea of me going to college.   Wait until i was 42 and went back again changing my major to an accounting degree, Only got 2/3 of that yr in when i had to have a major operation.    By then i had my frist grandchild and i was off to being a granny.  Six grands later they are all thru school except the youngest one who is 12 and loves to stay with granny whenever he can.  Had him this weekend.  I have had no desire to go back again.  But i also have my PHD in the School of Hard Knocks.

Graduated with my Associates in Science, and then moved out of the state I lived in for personal reasons. Never ended up going back to further my degree, which I sometimes regret, sometimes not. I am pretty happy with the way my life turned out, and I am one who believes everything happens for a reason, so if I am meant to go back, someday I will.

After I graduated HS, I joined the military, which most would be surprised of just exactly how much schooling we go through.  And when I joined the fire service, I never realized that most of my first couple years were schooling, and each year there's diff classes u have to go through to maintain ur service.

Graduated in from high school in 79 and proudly went to college in 2002. Got my first computer don't think I ever saw a computer until then!  I worked full time and went to school full time all paid for by none other then me a single mom. Omg how old am? I will finish when I grow up!  Until then I have some college! need about 10 more credits for Business Management  If you wait that long you can write papers and get $ for books for being old and smart enough to want to better yourself, boy did it take guts to go to school that far out of high school glad I did it lots of work, learned a lot and learning was fun! You really appreciate more when you pay your own way!
