Default Edgamacation Pole

So with the recent "grammar" thread I got really curious about the folks that subscribe to this forum and their education level. My theory is there are a lot of college grads or folks in collage thus the preoccupation with spelling and grammar. Now this goes against another theory I have about collage grads not being able to find their *** with both hands so.... lets see the numbers.

I voted for "some collage," forgiving the simple spelling error made by someone with an "advanced degree."
5 years college. No degree. Dropped out of a dual degree program just shy of completing. Seemed like a good idea at the time.

Believe it or not, I'm actually a HS dropout. Yup, a GED is what I have. Honestly though, I wish I hadn't as it's a case of "if I knew then what I know now", but there isn't anything I can do about it now. I will eventually get back to school though. Sometimes I feel very justified about making fun of people who show blatant abuse of the English language as most people automatically think that education equals being smart whereas by that same rule I should be speaking/typing like some street thug. Though I will admit my proof reading skills seem to go AWOL sometimes or my fingers feel like adding an extra letter.

I've taken a few community "collage" classes, and an AA in Arabic. Nothing like learning a foreign language to make a grammar and spelling **** out of you...

Wow. Doing well.

I was dual ME/engrish major. Dropped the ME after dynamics and thermo 1, finished with BA in English with minor in Philosophy.

If there were a cheap state school around here offering Engineering BS degrees, I would definitely finish up the BSME. Sometime in the future I will.

My degree is a Doctorate in Divinity. Cost me 30 bucks and I can baptize people in my swimming pool. Even get a cool parking pass. I was thinking of starting my own church but then figured I'd go to hell if I did that.

2 BBA degreees in Accounting and Finance. I was in law school, but decided I didn't need to make a lot of money to be happy and would rather spend more time with friends/family than work 70 hours weeks until I am 40. I will be getting my MBA soon.

I have an associates degree, and Im looking to go back to get more. "Some College" is not the same as associates degree, so I did not participate in the poll.
