    Just curious -- after reading so many posts -- what level of education most LPSGers have. Yes, this is a test. No, you don't have to participate.

    1. Didn't graduate High School

    2. High School graduate

    3. Some college, no degree

    4. Have a four-year degree

    5. Have a Master's Degree

    6. Have a Doctorate


    NOTE: I tried to make this a poll using the polling feature, but it didn't want to work for me.

    I got my first college degree at age 26. Then I went back for another. I'm greedy like that. So I guess you can say I'm educated beyond my intelligence. How about you, MidLifeBear?

    Me? Gots me an Associate Degree in Plant Science while working for my BA in English and EFL graduate teaching certificate. Then after teaching combined 4th/5th grades for five years I runned off to gits me a MA in Linguistics and a Doctorate in Anthropology at UT, Austin.

    Biggest educational regret: I should have attend The University of Pennsylvania. Better Anthropology Department.

    Four-year arts degree plus a graduate diploma, which is sorta like a masters without a thesis.

    Color me an autodidact: everything I have ever needed to know in life (except, perhaps, French grammar) was self-taught. I graduated HS and ran like a bunny with a tooth-ache.

    During a job interview I told someone that I felt you could learn anything worth doing by reading a book with the possible exception of brain surgery and landing a 747... I did not get the job. :mad:

    You wouldn't have suited a pilot anyway.

    I have an MA.

    Not only a doctorate but a career of notable publications that have never been discredited and a lecture tour as well.
