      Took some college courses several years ago. Never finished it. Perhaps later...

            It seems like forever, but I did try to go to College at night to get an Associates Degree with the concept that eventually, I would go on for a Bachelors. Well, considering I was taking an average of 1 class a quarter, I did rather badly in one class. I passed the class (thanks to a kind teacher who appreciated me carrying her books from the car to the class and back and yes, I did some serious brown nosing there). Anyway, the college sent me a note suggesting that "in light of my recent low grades, perhaps I should consider lightening my course load". Well I took their advise and didn't return (remember, 1 class). The next quarter, the College sent me another letter. It said "We missed you, is there a reason you did not join us last quarter?"

            Anyway, for fun, I attached a copy of the first letter to the second and wrote a note on it and mailed it to the College. The note was "I was only taking 1 class at a time. I decided to take your advise". Anyway, needless to say, I have never heard from them since.

            But if it matters, today, I develop bids on multi-million  dollar projects. I may not be able to pick the right number to play. But I can keep the Company I work for very busy and profitable.

              7 PHDs, 6 Masters, 11 Bachelors.  Tntea's got a Masters and happens to also be be a contender for top predictor on a fairly constant basis.

              I'd bet she's got the highest formal education among those there.  It would be interesting to know where the 7 PHS, the other 5 Masters, and the 11 Bachelors are on the list. 

              I'm one of the 11 Bachelors and I'm not on it.  In fact, I'd bet the 7 PHDs, a number of the masters and plenty of the other Bachelors would find themselves far lower on that list than countless people with formal educational levels far below theirs.

              Probably on LP most of us are here to learn to win lotteries.  If we can learn to do if from someone who has a 9th grade education, bad breath and a bone through his nose, those factors are worth ignoring in favor of a higher ideal.

                I Agree!

                Since you asked...I checked Bachelors. I have some grad school, but only a year. I've also got more licenses in Florida for things I either decided not to do or tried and didn't like.  The wealthiest person I ever personally knew didn't finish high school. He owned a hotel, condo development, apartment complex, some office buildings and restaurants.  I have much more education and on a good week I treat myself to the 2-ply toilet paper (although I still buy generic.)

                  "Well, it's my first poll here. I was just curious if highly educated people who have the qualifications to get high paying jobs were lottery players.

                  I've always worked with my hands to make ends meet.

                  Since I've learned a little about computers and programming, I have my sights on living off of these lotteries.

                  I'm becoming more and more convinced each day that with the right programs and a little faith and patience it can be done."


                  Way To Go Slippo, Yes It can Be Done !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

                      Well, the truth is that I have a GED and a few, very few college hours and of course not a college degree.

                      Scripture educated me and I am not "talking" about sacred writings, but about the written word, printed word to be exact.

                      For the most part, libraries' and bookstores' books, educated me or I educated myself thru reading them.

                      I am not one of those who have a PHD.

                      And English is my second language, which I started to learn when I was sixteen or seventeen years old.

                      I am U.S.A. born from Mexican parents and grew-up on Mexico, I came back to the United States when I was eighteen years old a very long time ago.

                      Unlike some people here, I am telling the truth.

                        Those bookstores and libraries did pretty well by you.  You're a fairly well-spoken hombre.

                          Interesting enough I have followed you guys and your post and i am very happy to be a part of this forum.
                          Thanks to all that have given great advice ,predictons,programs etc. sfilippo your programs are fantastic.i just wish i could figure out illinois with emma lou.stumbled upon a degree in electronics engineering how ever realised early that without experience i wouldn't eat.So i decided to specialize in two-way communications.BSed my way through an interview and collected some nifty motorola certifications along the journey.still broke though ..$50 bucks straight on a four ball sure would make up for the late night studies.

                            Add me to the list.  I have a Masters degree in Criminology.  Sadly I'm not using it- not because I don't want to but I can't find a job to use it in.  I've applied everywhere (federal gov't, state gov't, local gov't- heck even the lottery!) but either I'm overqualified (through my education), underqualified (don't have the work experience) or there are 100's of people applying for 3 positions & I'm the one they don't pick.  Something will happen soon hopefully

                              Your future's assured, luckylady.

                              The explosion in the number of activities that have become criminal over the past couple of decades, combined with the explosion in the percentage of cops-per-capita we have to keep us safe makes it a lead-pipe cinch you'll be among the criminal elite before too much more time passes.

                              Having a Masters in Criminology ought to give you a leg up on all those folks who just want the power of being able to lord a gun and uniform over the rest of us for a burned out tail-light bulb.
