As someone who is slowly but surely finishing a doctorate, I was curious in asking everyone what their highest level of education was. I feel so behind other Bees’ timelines as far as home ownership/having children/etc., but I realized that might be because I’ll have completed 10 years of post-secondary education after high school once I’m completely finished.
Also, has anyone had trouble finding a job in their degree field once you graduated/were licensed? Given the recession, that whole situation is making me a bit apprehensive

I responded to you on my other thread 🙂 I’m curious what you went to school for?
I didn’t vote in the poll because I’m currently an undergrad and not sure where I’ll end up… but saying I only have HS education doesn’t seem fair with all the college stress I’ve been through, haha.

I’ll graduate with my J.D. this year at 24. I don’t have a job lined up yet, but I still have a good 7-10 months to find one before graduation/the bar. Mr.ND and I will be married this spring. We won’t own a home but we’ll rent for a few years while we pay off our school loans. We did just buy a summer place, but it’s very affordable and not at all fancy. And we don’t plan to have kids until 26 or so *knock on wood.*
Thankfully, Mr.ND graduated at 23 w/ his B.A. and got a job within a month. I’m praying that this economy isn’t too hard on me and that I find a job before graduation. I’m doing well in school, so I hope that helps give me leg-up. We’ll see.

I’m in my first year of law school. I’ll finish up when I’m 25 and don’t plan on having children until 32 (my grandmother had my mom when she was 32 and my mom had me when she was 32 so it seems like the right time ) A doctorate is no easy feat so I think that’s pretty awesome that you’re in the midst of completing yours!

I feel like “some college” should be an option. I have two years of undergrad down so I feel like that warrants more than “High School Diploma” but since I am working toward a B.A. I don’t have an Associates. My major is PoliSci/Pre-Law.
I am currently a sucessful IT professional. My title is techinically IT Administrator, though I function as the IT Director.

I have a BS in Business – Marketing and a MA in Communications, Advertising, and PR
@MrsEdamame: Best of luck finishing your doctorate! Quite an accomplishment. I think the economy is definitely picking up for jobs, but the time to fins a job really depends on your field.

I have my Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences, major was physiology. I decided too late that I wanted to do nursing so when I am not so broke and behind on bills I want to go back and get my BSN with an accelerated program. 🙂 Eventually I want to get a doctorate in nursing so I can be a nurse practitioner.

@MrsEdamame: I’ve personally found my degree hasn’t helped me as much as I thought it would, it’s experience that seems to count. But I’m glad I’ve got it and I enjoyed studying for it.

My vote isn’t entirely true. I voted I have a masters, but really I’ll finish my masters classes in December (I can’t wait!) and graduate after an internship in June.
If anyone is hiring recently MBA grads for jobs or internships in southern california send me a PM. 😉
