    AA followed by certificate in Human Services
    BA with one year post grad classes and Teaching Certificate.
    Lots of other college classes ranging from business to ecological sciences to art classes to fuck knows what.

    This does NOT necessarily make me smarter, kinder, better, more wise or wealthier than some people with less than a high school education.  I have a wonderful family member who never graduated from high school but bought their first house at age 24 and can any piece of junk into something very functional.  An amazingly skilled individual.  There are numerous other example of people with far less education than I have who are more skilled or more intelligent or more wealthy or more physically fit or more mentally fit or more wise (or any combination of those) than I am. 

    I'm just a simple education junky.  I think I have something like 220 college credits.  I've lost count. But big whoop, right? :tongue:

    Bachelor of Business (Marketing) - that was a waste of money. Wish I never did that degree. Still paying off my debts.
    Now studying psychology at an undergrad level. Hoping to get into postgrad. Honours then either Masters or phD or both.

    Why did I have a feeling you would be one of the more educated people around these parts??  Maybe because I’ve never seen you stoop to talking points, name calling, or be dismissive of ideas, You’ve always kept it civil whether you agreed or not.  I can’t recal anytime you’ve just posted sensationalistic responses.  It all makes sense now lol.

    I love studying, Brian.
    I feel like such a nerd at university, always sitting up front and contributing to lecture/tutorial discussions.
    Part of the reason I'd like to work as a lecturer in psychology one day.
    I don't think I am smarter than others, I just try my best and work very hard to get the grades I want.

    Well, thank you matts but the dirty truth about me is that at one time or another, I have done some of or all of those very things here- once so egregiously that I banned myself from the forums for six months.  I've learned a lot here and hope I've become a better person for it, mostly due to the fine folks who frequent this place and the kindness of Mods who let me off by the skin of my teeth.  I know of no better place anywhere on the internet.  :smile:

    Man, that’s awesome.  My old lady graduates Saturday with a political science major, and she’s 32.  We both worked hard, but it’s never too late.  Set goals and achieve them.

    I have a BS in BS (bachelor of science in behavioral science ;)).  Majored in Sociology and minored in psych.  I have moved away from these fields career wise, but still try to keep up with the latest research.  I have thought about going back to school, but am not interested in going back into debt to do so...

    Heck yeah!  My wife only has a few college credits to her name but she is smarter and more successful than I am.  But then, I did marry her, so I guess I get some smarts credit for that.  :smile:

    Some college
    went to university for a year. hated it. 
    went to one of those "quicky" colleges and got my "degree" (completely useless). I was young and naive and the government hands out student loans like candy. 

    spent most of my time in my 20's partying and playing in a band that never got out of the garage. in hindsight, it was fun, but I fell into a job that doesn't pay much but I don't hate it, it's low stress, and the people I work with have loads of fun (think of The Office without the idiot boss). 

    university is a crapshoot. it can mean absolutely zero. it can be a learning experience, educationally and socially/emotionally. it can give you a career. it can give you all of those things or nothing. 

    the only thing I think about sometimes is that my kids won't respect me. In my day, our dads were professionals who went to school to get an office job and move up the corporate ladder. or you were a labourer that worked hard and taught your kids the value of that hard work. 

    I am neither. I am fine with that on a personal level, but I hope my kids are able to do something better if they want it.

    I'm wondering why you are interested in knowing this. If you see that I have an associates degree, would that make my opinion or points any more or less valid than someone with a degree in your mind? 

    I'm not trying to bust your balls, I just find it strange that you would want to know this info.

    There are people with advanced degrees who believe in anthopogenic global warming and people with advanced degrees who do not believe in anthropogenic global warming.  So the fact is, college degrees "don't mean shit to a tree*".
