BS - Business Administration - from a cow college (Moo)

MS - Taxation - from a day care center for the retarded offspring of the wealthy that has graduate programs so they can pretend to be a university.

Other: can declare myself a specialist in Cutting, Pressing and Alteration having by some miracle passed that motherfucker of an exam. Probably the single most difficult thing I've ever done or ever will do in anything resembling an academic setting. :)

I went to the army right after high school, started college when I was 27, and dropped out 2 years later. I did well in political science, writing, and all the required diversity classes. I quit when I discovered that I still couldn't do math. I've been failing 8th grade algebra since the 8th grade. When letters appear in math class, I'm finished, it looks like a foreign language to me.

It's probably some sort of learning disability.

Just like retards usually find a nice career as the bag-tard at your local grocery store, the lawyer can trace his career-choice to a mental disability.

I have a Bachelor of Science degree majoring in Maths/Comp Sci with a "Cognitive Science" minor (basically a mish-mash of Psych papers, Linguistics and Philosophy of Mind). I was awarded a scholarship to stay and do a Master's, but I was sick of university so I went and got a job instead. I'm kind of thinking of doing some kind of extramural diploma in a year or so, possibly in the arts. I did a couple of Classics papers (Roman/Greek History) as electives in my first year and really enjoyed it.

Right now I've got my BA in philosophy, and I'll probably just go into law school next fall. I've also contemplated going to grad school for my masters/PhD in philosophy so I could teach at the university level/continue to write. I don't have a SOLID plan as of yet, but something within those realms.

a year away from a B.A in Political Science and History of Art and Architecture. After that I'll go for a masters in Fine Art, i will possibly then get a diploma or degree in valuation and surveying with a view to working in a charming place here called Adams, like Sothebys, buying and selling fine art :D Other options are working in any gallery anywhere as a curator or my favourite - getting married and getting started on having the 6 children i want and keeping art as a hobby, and family as a career.

You damn Irish...don't you remember what happened last time your national population surpassed the level of sustainability and agricultural output? :p

Seriously...six kids!? Not only is that reckless, it's insane!!!

It's interesting to note that in Europe, the education system is laid out much more intelligently. At 19 you are already on your way to finished your upper-level education, while I'm just getting started...

I entered college as a major in "Psyche!"-ology, with the intention of pursuing a field in neuroscience, preferably with a double major including biology.

I was then told that I'd need permission from the Dean of both schools, the School of Science and the School of Culture and Society, to "overload" my schedule, and that this would have to be done on a semesterly basis. I didn't feel like dealing with that crap, and I also began to become less interested in neuroscience, so I decided to change my major to biology, maintaining a minor in psychology, chemistry (only 1 course, Biochemistry, in addition to the four required chem courses), and possibly philosophy, since I've already taken two courses, and a total of five are required for a minor.

What am I doing with all this garbage? Ideally, I'd like to enter graduate school for ecology or some related field which will allow me to be a nuisiance to our society on a professional level, and exercise my influence over public policy and corrupt minds. People aren't making simple connections when it comes to life, sustainability, and Nature, and I see it as my "moral imperative" to amend this. I'm of the mind that in our current age, there is no greater necessity than to attach a sense of Destiny to one's occupation, and that in doing so, you enter in a relationship with the past and the future with an intimacy of which our society is otherwise devoid.

The notion of getting a "job" is too distasteful to me. It makes no sense to be working in a place that does not complement your worldview, let alone become a means to realizing your Will. That would tear at my conscience, and there must be some serious spiritual suicide involved to let an aversive job settle within one's mind.

Well I have one (with English as well), and basically none except to continue on at grad level, that is become a lecturer (there are only a handful of actual philosophers ever at any one time of merit, the rest are critics etc.).

Doing it on its on is job suicide basically.

I think this too.

I dropped out of university. Planning on going back once I realize what I really want to do when it is worth the investments of time and money. Or maybe I will realize an opportunity to do something with my life that is my version of meaningful and would require little or no formal education at all (and isn't simply having children as if that would in itself exalt my existence).

You need a certain amount of money to live well (much less than most would think or may want, though). I am currently struggling with how practical I am willing to be in this matter. Most careers don't seem to offer much more than an income from where I stand...might as well flip a coin to choose which one. And if I want to have children I can't devote much of my time to some career, anyway.

I was home-schooled in an era when home-schooling was not a trendy thing. My mother was a real task master in the education area. A perfectionist of sorts as well.
No formal education other than a kindergarten course in computer use when I was fifty-four years old. You know, the standard "how to turn off and on" information. Hearty laugh.
I have since then taught myself how to use the movie maker which I have a lot of fun with producing little amateur productions for my own amusement and edification.
