    This poll has been done before but I think it is important to do it again to see how our community has changed since the poll was done.

    Yeah -- I don't like that the thread is visible to forum viewers before the poll options are submitted by the poster either. This forum feature should be corrected.

    I have a degree in economics & politics, a cert in legal studies, a cert in teaching adults, and am currently studying a diploma in law (leading to a degree in barister-at-law).

    I've been in school or college 24 years out of my 35 on this earth.

    I've got a BSc in Maths, am a qualified ACA and am currently studying for a diploma in audio engineering.

    My sister is really going for it though. Her first degree was a 4 year MSc, then she did her PhD (2 years I think) and now she is at medical school studying to be a doctor. :eek:

    Finished college (B,Arch) a few years ago. Dabbled in some grad studies, then decided I needed to work on getting licensed before doing any more school.

    Still working on my NCARBs. Someday I'll be able to call myself an architect without being sued...

    Always learning, but officially I've a bunch of college paperwork, a BSc in Electronics Engineering and an MBA...

    ...but it's usually who you know, not what you know that's important.

    (I assumed 'Grad School' is for University Graduates and Post Graduates?)

    Not to be nosey, but what sort of age does that represent. I've seen posts here where people talk about being in 8th or 10th grade, but that's meaningless to me.

    Good luck at Mines! Chemical Engineering, IIRC?

    Anyway, for me it's a B.S. Engineering Physics, M.S. Materials Engineering, PhD Materials Engineering, the BS and MS from Colorado School of Mines, the PhD from UC-Santa Barbara. Now doing postdoctoral research in France with CNRS. AKA, too much edumacation.

    8th graders are usually about 13 when they start the year.

    In the US, the system is usually kindergarten followed by twelve grades...then it's off to college/uni. Everything you'd ever went to know (and more) about the US educational system: Wikipedia (insert usual Wikipedia disclaimers here).

    That's where you get advanced degrees beyond the bachelor's degree...master's degrees, PhDs, etc. Professional degree programs like med school and law school are generally not classified as "grad school" in the US.

    More Wikipedia goodness...
