I made it through a year of grad school and 30 years later I'm broke.  I think I had more money in high school mowing lawns and babysitting. They always say that most people who buy lottery tickets are uneducated, but from the looks this board, I'd say most of us know our ABCs. Then there are a few who know duh? huh?

      I usually refer to the 5th grade as "my senior year!", when I talk about school....

          I twice started to go to college, but dropped out each time. At 42 I have no plans to try again, but you never know.

            Same here, I also went to college twice and dropped out.  I'm 40. Don't like being in a classroom. It's too boring for me. I'd rather work, I  have to pay the bills.

              Well,

              I have a decent education. I have been to college 3 times. I have a AS in computers and over 15 certifications includeing MCSE and many more.

              I'm educated mainly in electronics since that is what I love and have a nack for.

              I agree with being in a classroom. It's boring!! That is why I'm not in college anymore. I dropped out of my last one because I knew more about computers then the teachers did. GO FIGURE!!

              I enjoy learning on my own. All you need is a book on what you want to learn and a push to do the work.

              I learned more on my own and job exp. in computers then I will ever learn in school.

              PP

              Good luck to everyone!!!

                Totally agree. The only way to learn.

                The Navy had that problem. I was in it.

                Can you imagine an OCS graduate calling the shots, when there is a Senior Chief with 35 years of on hands training, being told what to do by a wet behind the ear OCCIFER, right outta schoolin'?

                This very thing occurs all the time in the Navy.

                        I also hold a Masters in lottery 101. I cannot begin teaching however until I graduate with a Big Jackpot windfall.

                        Somehow the most qualified professor, Mr. Jack Whittaker, doesn't remind me of any professor I actually had.
