5 years undergrad
4 years post grad
Another year for a fellowship this year
Then another 3 years hopefully for my residency

If everything works out, I'll be ~$500,000 in debt. I'm already $250k in the hole.

Yeah, but you'll be ok. I have a few doctors in my family, the worst paid's base salary is $400k/yr--not to mention the incredible perks, bonuses, and benefits. My great uncle was making 7 digits/yr before he retired, and the first digit was not a 1.

I hope you are going to be a surgeon or some other fancy specialist

Bachelors Degree here. Can't say I really learned anything in school though. 95% of everything I know I learned at work, not school.

there is no option for: working on a masters.

BS In MIS (which my University no longer offers. I wonder why since most of us did not get within 10feet of landing a job in the industry.)

Working on a MEd (Masters in education: Administration)

I have a BS in Management with a Mgmt Info Systems minor from Purdue (Boilermakers, hence my SN), and am now 3 semesters away from a BS in Mathematics from Indiana U. Then on to grad school for a Master's and possibly PhD in Mathematics as well (most likely from Purdue).

5 years college. No degree. Dropped out of a dual degree program just shy of completing. Seemed like a good idea at the time.
It's great isn't it. I'm in that shitty boat as well. So many years of effort wasted and nothing to show for it. Been going to college on and off since I was 16, now I am 23... "Well, I went to college for 5 years... 2 or 3 times." I WILL have a damn degree to show for it this time. Only another 1.5 years of my life, it'll be worth it. To make it worse, I have no high school diploma, only a GED, so I look really impressive to potential employers. No high school, no college degree... great.

Had one year of ChemE. My GPA only had a zero to the left of the decimal for that year, so I moved on.
BA in History...very useful if I ever decide to take the GRE or teach high school or something.
The whole debacle took six years. My buddies frequently quote Tommy Boy to me: "...and you finished in just a shade under a decade. Alright..."

BS in Business Administration.

Graduated magna *** laude back in 2005. I then promptly got a job working on computer networks, and I never used one lick of information from my college career.

Bachelors.....considering pursuing a masters next year. I really could care less if I spell something wrong or miss punctuation on a message board. Iím usually typing fast and as long as you know what I meant, I have affectively communicated.

Intriguing thread. I am on my second year at a community college. I'm still trying to figure out what I want to do. So far my credits are leaning toward Mechanical Engineering, but I don't know what I want to do in terms of working for the rest of my life. I would give anything to go to SLO. Unfortunately I do not have the funds, and only have a 3.0 gpa, considering I also work full time at a bank.

To those who dropped out, what are you doing in terms of jobs and living? Don't get me wrong, I adore reading and learning. I have read and reread Maximum boost, Internal Combustion Fundamentals, and related books. However, at this point I just want to go out and do something. I realize in this economically competitive time, dropping is the worst financial decision I can do, but I need not a whole lot to make me happy. I have no interest in being on top of the world. I just want to find a good job that can help feed and shelter a beautiful wife and wonderful children someday.

Anyone interested in starting a business?
