Which is it?
I had to vote for other because I have a +30 above my master's. This puts you in another income bracket.
However, I must say that over the years I have come to discover that possessing a sheepskin does not necessarily a scholar make.
My grandfather's experience and my mother's wisdom could have earned them 10 college degrees if that were possible.
My family reunions are scary events. Most of the family resembles the stereotypical red neck, you know pickups with gun racks, John Deere hats, jeans and white t-shirts, or maybe bib overalls, go huntin and fishin after plowing the back 40, and don't even think of messing with their daughters cause the gun racks in the pick up only hold part of the family arsenal.
Then get in the room with then and there are more Ph. Ds than at some Collages. I feel like the village idiot since I only have a B. S. I'm telling you there is nothing scarier than a well educated red neck.
amen Bill. That's my kinda talkin'.
There is something impressive about being eligible to teach at a university with honors and being able to accurately remove buckshot from a squirrel. That is what we hillbilly's call a renaissance feller.
Maybe I should start calling my relitives "renaissance fellers" instead of red necks, it does have a much more distinguished sound to it.
I graduated from high school and attended a junior college.
I thought those guys just lived in the south . . .
Well they are from SOUTHERN Illinois. :thumbs:
I put 60 hours in at the University of Houston and had to quit to go to work. Honestly, I don't know how it is people can juggle going to college and working a full-time job at the same time. I've got respect for people who do. My problem is, aside from being way too tired after work, my weekends are full up with church meetings and preaching appointments. I'll be going to Corpus Christi twice more this year to preach. I don't mind it, in fact I enjoy it, but it does take a lot out of me to go so far for Sunday and come back for work Monday. But, looks like I better get used to another few decades of it anyway.
In any event, I was the first in my family to have any college at all, so that's something, I suppose.
Have Bachelor of Science in Mathematics-- Statistics option. But I don't work in anything related to that because no one would hire me for a position. I earned that degree over 9 years working fulltime all the way, and a longtime girlfriend wouldn't marry me because I worked in a comparatively low-paying, low-prestige job. That's why life &%#^s and I'm bitter much of the time.
BA in Education, Emphasis in Social Sciences
9 hours until my Masters in Special Education is complete. (January 4, 2008)
Non-traditional student all the way past my AA at a community college. Got married and did the work and school thing... speckled with gray by 25...
I chose "Other" because there was no option for a 2 year degree.
I have an Associate in Applied Science in Electronics. I don't use it anymore and it will not transfer very well. The degree is old enough that it doesn't help when looking for a job. It's just a neat piece of paper that stays stored on my book shelf.
my attitude in high school was homework why should I do it:BangHead:
Reminds me of the old saw of the educated jerk - "He's educated beyond his intelligence."
Unfortunately, this applies to too many of the elite today!
Man!! Bitter??? You ought to be thanking God daily for deliverance from this potential tragedy!!
I received my M.Div. from SBTS in 2003 and now i'm praying about a D.Min program.
"Other" - Move over kiddies, I've been in cab game 14½ years now, and THAT is an EDJEUKAISHUN!! :smilewinkgrin:
