I have a high school diploma. I took some college classes before dropping out of college to enter the workforce. So I don't have a college degree.

I wanted to have an anonymous poll with this, but VB rebelled Perhaps I'll work on it and have a Mod merge the threads

BS Math (statistics concentration)

I am more or less half way through the requirements for associateship in the society of actuaries which, when I am finished, will have been a comparable effort to the undergrad degree.

Almost 4 years of university (so far). Graduating with a BA of Arts (major: English; minor: French) in a few months. (I'll probably start on a Master's degree in English after this summer.)

I am halfway through getting my BA in English. I am also doing a BA in Anthropology but I might change that to a minor.

I took two years of college before I dealt the feminist movement a severe blow and dropped out to marry my husband.

You dropped out to *marry* him, specifically? Wow. Must have been a very complicated and involved ceremony

I have a BS in biology and a JD, which is technically a doctorate. But the first person who calls me "Dr. Tess" is gonna get whacked!



You can call me Tess, Esq.

I am 5 semsters away from a B.S. In computer science.



Which is a bit more than50 weeks. But then I got 3 more semisters of paid work experience to do...



I'll graduate this time in 2 years, after 4 years classes and 1 year paid work experience. *whew*

Are "semsters" different than "semisters"?

Couldn't deal with the BS of doing a B.S. Dropped out, joined the great unwashed. Got a job, and then switched jobs a few times. Work in a very technical environment with some extremely bright people with the paper to back it up, and not having a degree hasn't held me back (at least not yet).

Actually, I dropped out to live with him at first, and we got married three years later. He is a computer contracter who moved every 3-6 months, sometimes to foreign countries, so it was indeed complicated.

That kind of traveling sounds like fun, adventure and you must have a very pioneering spirit to be able to uproot yourself that frequently (a very feminist trait, IMO )

It was fun and adventurous, and also hard, but I don't regret it. I made so many friends and saw so many cool things. Yeah, I guess that is kinda feminist! Rock on!

Dude, semester. I hate that word.



We actually call them quarters and they are 10 weeks long, but people understand semester so I say that.

I'm a freshman at the University of Pittsburgh's College of Business Administration. Major in Accounting and minor in Economics.



I was going to do a double major, but I'm too broke for that. Going for my MBA sometime after college.
