I have my BA in English/Comm from USC. So...yeah, that was a complete waste. My degree has less point that a rubber ball.

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?

P.S. I am a Bruin and I am proud of it!

I'm still in High School (Senior), so I'm not sure where that puts me.

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.

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

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.

Don't even start with the English composition or else I will whip out my gerunds, dangling participles, and various disjunctive phrases out on yo Trojan arse!

I see the option for other advanced degree. Would my M.A. in Political Science count? (shameless me)

I have 2 B.S. and 2 M.S.. I thought 4 degrees was enough and I should probably start working at some point.
