Higher Education doesn’t define your intelligence. It just means you paid a lot to know a lot about a particular subject. We’re the dumbasses in a shit ton of debt. Plus there are so many resources available to learn online. Khan academy. Code academy. Edex. I’d recommend Mental Floss though. More fun. :)
This explains a lot. I never believed you were a lawyer/dentist :-)a master's in creative writing
. There were a lot of seriously enthusiastic and frustrated students in that program who couldn't get professors willing to put in the time to support the students' academic interests unless closely aligned with their own interests and pursuits
Thwarted. And by my own doing. Damn.This explains a lot. I never believed you were a lawyer/dentist :-)
How cool to find someone else with an interest in SLA! :-)I have a BA plus an RSA diploma. I tried an MA program in 2nd Language Acquisition but I'd gotten rebellious after a couple of years out of school and annoyed the main instructor too much, so I quit.
I wound up with a university teaching career, though. People's fates vary.
That is so coolI only have an undergraduate in computer engineering.
@mediocre Dont worry you can go to university at any age. Believe graduating at my age sucks (23). Graduating university is not as great as it made out to be. the pressure to create a life for yourself after graduating is awful. The pressure comes mainly from me .
@TotallyIsolated a masters in computer science that is so cool. Sorry about the PHD though.I have two Masters' in computer science. I thought I wanted to do a PhD but omg holy shit it didn't work out. Going back to university a second time was a great experience and I made so many new friends, but I really didnt thrive in an unstructured working environment and I immediately got off on the wrong foot with my supervisor. He HATED me and I crumbled under the pressure - it drove me to my first suicide attempt.
@SleeplessSoul well done and have fun with your Phd.I have a MA in 18th century literature and I'm about to start a PhD
During my BA/MA I mostly focussed on prostitution and venereal disease. I mostly used novels (like Defoe) and people’s diaries, but I looked at political and medical pamphlets too!What literature in particular? Congrats on the PhD. That’s awesome! Have you had your thesis proposal approved, do you already know what the purpose of your study will be?
Very impressive - I do not have the math & science skills to even apply let alone get an undergraduate in engineering.I only have an undergraduate in computer engineering.
Shit I only graduated Highschool because of the help of my special ed. teachers and getting do-overs on assignments. I probably should have repeated at least a year if not 2 years or just dropped out all together. I definitely didn't really deserve a diploma in my own opinion.
