    So just a tad curious to see how well MRers are schooled. :p :)

    Please vote in the poll, and if you would like to post about your school/alma matter that would be nice too. :)

    I went to the University of Utah for a few years and then decided it wasn't for me. :eek: The funny thing is all through High School I got really good grades, but as I got older I lost interest in formal education when I got into college.

    Currently I am working on my Cisco Certifications which at my work equals a raise!!! :D

    I second stealthninja... I currently just have a high school diploma but give me two more years and I'll have a BS... then eventually an MS hopefully (that part depends on whether or not I land a good job out of college :p )

    Well you should pick the highest one completed thus far, so it would be a HS diploma for both of those.

    The reason I didn't include "in college" is because I figured that it would be too amorphous; there are plenty of people who go in and out of college every year but not necessarily get a degree.
    What are you going to study in grad school?:)

    I have a Bachelors. I will have a Masters in December of this year. As a matter of fact, I have to take my COMPS this Saturday and am moving forward on getting thesis materials together! My brain hurts.

    I hope to have my PhD by May 2012.

    That sounds really interesting.

    My cousin did that and loves it. It's truly a very rewarding thing. :)

    If you have the equal of a Bachelor's degree, then you'd pick BA/BS. If you're doing 4th Year honours, then I can assume that you do have the equivalent of a BA.

    Studied neurobiology at Northwestern. Now engaged in the struggle through a boatload more years of school for a couple more degrees.

    I'm a freshman at the University of Michigan. Thought about getting a Mac for college, but thought it was a safe choice to stick with Windows, so I opted for a Dell. Upon coming to college, I was surrounded by Macs, and subsequently purchased a Macbook. Addiction, anyone? :rolleyes::apple:

    I was in school for a quite a few years: Preschool, K-12, Bachelor's degree, Master's degree, and a Ph.D. in Computer Science. Then I stopped and became a hobo.
