    Default Your educational status

    This is not an open poll, so be honest.

    I'm consistantly amazed by the level of education of all the coachellians that i have met. Most that I have talked with have at least a Bachelors, if not a Masters degree.

    I currently have a Bachelors and have just enrolled in a Masters program.

    What level of education have you achieved? And only vote for the level you have attained, not working towards. Example: My vote would be Bachelors, since I do not have a Masters...yet.

    Why does everyone with a Masters have to remind you like 1000 times a day that they have a Masters?

    I'm almost done with my bachelors, at age 48. I don't feel any smarter than when I had only the CA Proficiency Exam.

    I guess that kind of explains why you struggle with philosophical/existential issues.

    see, i feel ok with it though because 1) i get on-the-job business experience that will be more valuable than a degree and 2) i really do study and pay attention in class. i only take one at a time every 9 weeks and i take a month or two off if i'm busy. i don't feel any need to "rush" through my degree. so while it's taking me a really long time, i am enjoying my program and i don't feel too much stress with relation to school.

    and that's my excuse for not having my degree after 6 years *jazz hands*

    I'm broke but I'm happy
    I'm poor but I'm kind
    I'm short but I'm healthy, yeah
    I'm high but I'm grounded
    I'm sane but I'm overwhelmed
    I'm lost but I'm hopeful baby

    What it all comes down to

    I'm young and I'm underpaid

    I care but I'm worthless
    I'm here but I'm really gone
    I'm wrong and I'm sorry baby

    What it all comes down to
    Is that everything's gonna be quite alright
    I've got one hand in my pocket
    And the other one is flicking a cigarette

    What it all comes down to
    Is that I haven't got it all figured out just yet
    I've got one hand in my pocket

    I'm free but I'm focused

    I'm shy but I'm friendly baby
    I'm sad but I'm laughing
    I'm brave but I'm chicken shit

    I've got one hand in my pocket
    And the other one is playing the piano

    What it all comes down to my friends
    Is that everything's just fine fine fine
    I've got one hand in my pocket
    And the other one is hailing a taxicab...

    I have a JD (I'm an attorney), which doesn't really fall neatly into any of the options. On forms, it's usually considered a "Professional Degree" I think (which also includes pharmacists, architects, dentists, engineers, etc.).

    nice. just do it and get it over with. once done, you always have it.

    my masters program is starting out quite easy. sometimes i laugh at some of the shit they want you to do. kinda pointless sometimes.

    but it is worth it in the end.
