This week, many of us at Major Spoilers are preoccupied with our jobs as educators and students. That means final exams, final projects, and of course the walk across the stage during graduation. Some will seek immediate employment, while others will go to graduate school to further their education, and some will return to their parents’ basement to live out the rest of their lives.

This week, we turn the spotlight on you and ask the all important question…

    Aw man! I was proud of my vote of “Bachelor’s Degree” until I realized I was the third one to vote, and the first two votes had Masters Degrees. Now I just feel like I’m dragging the lot of us down…

  2. Master’s in Environmental Engineering with a Professional Engineer (PE) certification

    To answer your question about why I’m not rich yet, this is due to kids, comics, kids, student loans, kids…

  3. BA Hon. in Criminology. Decided against a Masters because I had accrued enough student debt already, but I am eyeing doing my Masters in Social Work at some point. Life is long, and I needed a break from school.

  4. PhD! As a PhD, I can confidently say that they’re overrated :-)

    I ain’t filthy rich, but I’m certainly blessed with more than I need.

    I have a bachelors degree in information technology with a focus on programming. I am an iPhone and iPad app developer. Which is pretty fun.

    One more year and I’ll have my Masters Degree from seminary. Then we’ll see if someone will hire me to be a pastor.

  7. Unfortunately, my highest “official” level of education is High School, and even that took some doing since not only does my health suck, so did the school system where I grew up (apparently missing school to get treatment for disabilities and illness is the same as skipping school to them). Even getting legal help and several groups for disabled students involved, I still ended up getting failed despite having made up all the work (should have been a B student in most classes, but was failed for being absent despite having doctors explain that I didn’t have much choice in missing school).

    I’d planned to go to college, but my health took a downward spiral that continues to this day. Even online classes are difficult when you are either in too much pain to get out of bed or too stoned from the meds to focus. Still hoping I’ll eventually find some balance so I can at least try someday.

    I got my Associates Degree and had to get a job to make a living. Never was able to go back and get a four year degree, even though I love college. It’s a matter of dollars and cents. And with tuition costs the way they are today, good grief! I heard that California college are now charging extra fees to get your diplomas, and even making graduates pay for tickets at $10 a pop or more for not only family member to attend the commencement, but the graduates themselves have to find a ticket. The scary thing is that the people running the colleges see nothing wrong with such highway robbery and talk like they are entitled to gouge students for every nickel they can get.

  9. It’s an interesting poll showing the education level of the “Major Spoiler’s” readers. It’s about what I would expect.
    I’ve got BS in Computer Science.

  10. Other, I suppose.
    In my country you get a lot of school based theory mixed in with practical work experience when you learn a trade, so becoming a certified electrician still took as long as getting through collage would here.
    Took as long, earn half the money! Yay!
