I refuse to believe there's only one person with a PhD here.

Not this poll back again. Isn't there another one of these somewhere also?

The wording "how well educated are you" should be replaced with "what is your highhest level of formal education." They mean different things.

I disagree. A better title would be, "How learned be you?"

You can be an ignoramus who cheats your way through college. Your formal level of education is Bachelor of Science, but your are not very well educated.

You disagree with this?

Perhaps I should have added a :p?

Seriously though, where are all the PhDs?

The were educated well enough to know not to open this thread.


I believe that "PhD" was added after much of the voting had already occured. Many of them may have voted for "Other". Together with the fact that some objected based on the wording of the subject, the poll is essentially meaningless.

But, but, but I'm basing my entire opinion of the edufication of 'fest members on this poll alone.

Every time I hear "PhD," I think of the Friends episode where Phoebe was dating that children's porn author. "Yeah, I've got a PhD. A pretty HUUUUUUUGE ..."

I think we established in another thread that very few of us watched Friends past the first few seasons if at all.

Would this be similar to how you misinterpret political discussions/polls toward your own bias as well?

:yikes: :eek: :angel:


I could be wrong, but I thought there were two camps. Those who stopped, and those who didn't. That's different than "very few".
I recall the "continued" camp was pretty small. Then again, you're right- it could be selective recollection.

With 150 responses (and counting), this poll is far from "meaningless". I think it serves a very good purpose. Apparently someone else did as well, since its been given a special place under news and announcements. Yes, perhaps I should have originally included PhD, if for no other reason than the fact that my wife is almost done with hers.

I find the educational breakdown to be interesting. However, I would not suggest that anyone working on their doctorate should run any statistical analysis on this poll. ;)

I always found it ackward answering this type of question. The last degree that I got puts me in a gray area. I have a Bachelor of Architecture (plus a Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies) which is what is called a professional degree that requires 5 years of college. There are other professions that also have a 5 year degree requirement. So in a sense it is more than an undergraduate degree but not quite a graduate degree. :confused: Though a 5 year degree or a Masters of Architecture is required in the majority of the States to become a Registered Architect.

Instead of the odd sounding "other advanced degree" how about entering "Post Graduate", for someone who earned their Master's Degree?
Master's in Social Work (MSW).

Don't feel bad, my JD does not figure in the world of law enforcement too well either. POST gives credits and incentives to Associates, Bachelors and Masters but never mentions Doctorates which a JD is. So I have to fight to get recognition as a Doctorate holder which should entitle me to everything the Masters degree holders have, such as incentive pay and advanced licensing certification.

Judging from the grammar and sentence structure of some of the people here who have some High School and the "rubble" ball of the Trojan who majored in English/Comm... maybe some members should seriously consider getting more education?:rofl:

No hate. I married a Bruin.

My sentence structure though? Really? I'll take my lumps for the occasional typo, but my sentence structure? Now that's just wrong. Don't make me throw down and challenge you to a syntax-off.

Ha! I can beat that. I double majored in English and Technical writing at UALR. At least USC is an actual university. So ha! I win the useless education battle.:rofl:

But I married a Vandy grad, so it all evens out.:thumbup:

BTW, my degree is not very helpful in my landscaping business. The plants don't seem to care about Phyllis Wheatley or Tim O'Brien.

So after both my Bachelor of Science and Master of Arts degrees were completed (engineering & education) I cannot say that I was all that well "educated." Instead, I learned that I have a LOT left to learn, and that well designed higher education programs should create a desire in the student TO learn, and teach then how to learn.

After those complicated sentences, I would encourage folks to never stop learning, and to help younger folks to desire to keep learning.

Am I correct in assuming that spelling wasn't covered in your MA in Education??

Either that, or you're a terrible typist without time or inclination to spell-check...
