I did not read all the pages but I cannot be the only person who has a 4 year degree and certifications on top of that. I didn't want to put other, so I chose 4 year.

I said other.

BA in History
BEd in Junior/Intermediate History
Reading and Special Education Specialists

I am debating a Master's but I am not sure I want to do it in Education. I think I would like to do it in International Relations or something like that. I think I need to deschool for awhile.

Thanks for the welcome! Actually, I'm pedo. I did a GPR prior to my pedo residency. My husband is ortho. Looks like we're a bunch of 2 dentist families! Everyone thinks I'm crazy to be married to another dentist. It's not like we don't have anything else to talk about besides dentistry!
PS I was beginning to wonder if everyone on here was a lawyer!

Periodically consider a PhD or another masters.

B.S. and M.Ag. in Botany.

The Master's was a consolation prize. I had been in a Ph.D. program in Plant Molecular and Cellular Biology for 18 months when I got pregnant, and decided to take the opportunity to get out with a non-thesis Master's degree rather than trying to complete the Ph.D. in a lab I did not want to be in doing work that was not what I wanted to do after all.

BS in Math, Masters in Education.

No more degrees for me in the next 15-20 years, but after that, who knows! I'm not interested in a PhD in educ, but there are lots of other fields I find interesting, and I like taking classes. I can see myself starting a new career after the kids are grown.

B.S. Biology, minor in environmental studies (started out as a pre-vet major)

M.A. Interdisciplinary Studies- focused on cultural landscapes

A.A. Native American Studies (how that happened is totally beyond me)

Working on second B.S. in natural resources (started out in Parks and Rec. management, but recently changed majors) with minors in anthropology and writing. After that's finished, I'll probably do a second M.S. in nonformal science education.

Whew! Will it ever be over???? I think I'm one of those people who will always be in school!!

HS grad w/ a semester of college - they kicked me out Ok I make that sound bad...it was a paperwork/technical error that factored into my gpa and plummeted it. I thought about fighting it but I felt like I wasn't accomplishing anything there anyways and just wanted to start over elsewhere.

Before I started over I ended up becoming a mom.

I voted Other. I have a JD (law school) which I think is sort of in between a masters and a PhD.

I have an AA in Foreign Language with an Arabic emphasis, an AS in Early Childhood Development, a BA in Politial Science, and a BS in Legal Studies. I've started and then left masters programs in Liberal Arts and Taxation. I went to law school for a year and really just consider myself a professional student! Maybe someday I'll decide what I want to be when I grow up....for now, I like playing trains and finger painting!
