    I’m graduating in about 3 weeks with a BA in Psychology. Afterwards, I’ll go to graduate school to earn a MA in Child/Adolescent Clincial Psychology. Then I want to earn a doctorate degree in Neuropsychology.

    @lawyerchick13:  I don’t think that statistic is low at all. I think it varies greatly regionally, or even by city, because of income and socioeconomic factors. For example, I grew up in an upper-middle class neighborhood and I would say at least 50+% of the people I have on FB from HS all have masters/doctorates and they’re mainly MBAs, JDs and MDs. On the other hand, Darling Husband grew up in a somewhat rough neighborhood and many of his HS classmates are lucky to have finished high school and maybe some college.

    In my area, it’s tough to get anywhere without a BA/BS (and preferably a “useful”/relevant one). I personally have a BA and an MBA and Darling Husband has a BA and a JD.

    I have a Masters degree.


    That statistic does seem low. I don’t know the context of where you got that number, but could it be that they were specifically referring to those who got a BA degree and not including those with a BS degree (or some other type of Bachelor’s)?

    If all goes well, I’ll have a PhD in 10 days!


    Most of my friends have at least a college degree, but I do know quite a few people (relatives, acquaintances, etc.) without any college.

    My BS is in Business and I have a Masters in Human Relations and Business.  Currently, I am a Campus Dean at a post-secondary school.  However, after the wedding, I’m starting my PhD in Business in September!  Not exactly what one would have in mind being a newlywed, but a gal’s got to do whatever it takes to stay competitive…

    I have an MA in Contemporary Literature and am currently studying for a PhD in English. All of my friends have university degrees at undergrad level; OH and his friends only went as far as GCSEs (high school).
