V.I.P.
I finished Secondary school, and after a year of Sixth Form as well as an attempt to do A Levels I've found that education just doesn't suit me any more.

I'm toying with the idea of working and earning the money for qualifications in accounting that I can take on the side, since I have experience from working as a trainee accountant for two years.

Honestly, I think what I'd really like to do is write a webcomic.

I'm in law school right now trying to get my J.D., so I guess that falls under "other."

@ Nic- wanna help me write mine?

left school at 16 been working for the last 17 years in dairy farming now own and run my own farm so while education is important just remember there is more than a fair share of burger flippers and window washers with phd's in subjects that have no or very little employment options outside of a select few elite students

I selected BS although I won't graduate until May...oh well.

Bachelor in social science
Criminal Justice major

I will also have my Masters in CJ as well. Its a 30-credit program so by May of 2013 I'll have that.

I'm curious as to what everyone's educational status is and how far they plan to go before entering the real world, if not already there. And if you're willing, to divulge what it is your studying and why you chose that.

I myself am just finishing up my 15th year and by the end of next year I should graduate with a double major in Psychology and Neurology with a minor in Political Science. My passion in education beyond school however lies in the workings of the Universe as a whole and a brain as a sub-unit therein and how they are intertwined.

For someone in university (especially in education), you sure write things wrong. BS doesn't mean anything.

BSc: Bachelor of Science
BA: Bachelor of Arts
BFA: Bachelor of Fine Arts
BEng: Bachelor in Engineering
BBA: Bachelor in Business Administration
Etc.

You should have just simply written "Bachelor" in whole instead of BS.

And yet notice how everyone knows what I'm talking about though? That's all I was really going for. If you want to nit pick and try to assert your intellectual dominance over a video game message board go for it and try your luck but I assure you that is not worth either of our time to get into that.

But on a more topic related subject since the time I started this thread I've decided to go on to graduate school in neuroscience for a phd instead of double majoring. I figure with how things seem to be going a bachelors doesn't seem enough anymore.
