I voted 4 year degree, but that's not entirely accurate. I was halfway through graduate school (working towards a professional degree) when DS1 was born and I decided to become a SAHM.

I have my BA, but I finished it in 3.5 years. I still voted "4 year degree".

FTR, going to school all those winters and summers, to finish school faster, left me completely unemployable when I graduated. I had zero work experience!

Homeschooled with a GED. I plan to apprentice and enroll in an online midwifery school but I have no intentions of going to college.

I have a JD, which is a law degree, earned after a bachelors. It takes three years to earn and is technically a doctorate (juris doctor), but no one uses "Dr." for a lawyer and I think of it as a separate category. (This explanation is for the US and a law degree is earned differently in some other countries.) I voted other.

(I haven't read the thread so I apologize if this is redundant.)

Should have my Masters.......

I am the only person in my office without a bachelors or higher.

And I know for a fact I make more than they do. I have no USC student loans to pay back either. So there are pluses and minuses to everything.

It is just weird to me that someone spends so much time studying for their career only to get paid less than someone who worked their way up. Like there is no benefit to the schooling or something. It is quite sad :
