    My highest education is bachelor's degree. Hoping to pursue my masters. How about you guys?

    If you don't mind, you guys can tell where you study?

    I studied at Malaysia.

    Mountain climbing classes. But I am thinking about learning sky diving. That's about as high as I want to go.

    I got my BA at the university of california at berkeley. I was recruited by princeton for graduate studies. But i thought to myself here are all these berkeley and stanford liberal arts students who can't find jobs so unless its a technical degree its just a big bill.
    I think it was a waste of time and money for me. I can learn by myself and a lot of the courses i took meant nothing to me { spanish , chemistry etc. } If i had to depend on my degree i would be broke , homeless or dead. And its just not me. Most of the berkeley , stanford, harvard { lots of east coast people here } liberal art grads, i've known or kept track of , haven't found good jobs in one of the most strongest economic centers in the world. I became a millionaire partly by collecting comics.
    But that's not to say a college degree might not work out for you. Its good for teaching. And technical areas like medicine and engineering. But this is a new era no one really understands . The job market , in general , and for college grads in particular may remain beak for years and years to come. But if the theory is right college graduates would then take the jobs high school graduates usually have.

    From a uni in Australia, one of the traditional "Sandstone" universities (Australia's version of Ivy League)

    If you're asking because you're interested in studying here as a Malaysian, well there are pros and cons, but be warned: one of the cons is a problem with racism. A longstanding problem...

    Eg: a Caucasian professor of Physics* at my uni once said in front of a number of students: "My goodness you Asians are a bunch of no-hopers".

    I thought it was uncalled for, undeserved, and very badly timed. (Foreign fee-paying students currently bring in several million dollars worth of funding per year to Australian universities, and Australian universities are trying to sell themselves as places of learning in Asia.)

    And I guess you have heard of the spate of so-called curry-bashings by white Australians against folk of dark colour, even on our National Day:
