College? I go to a C.C., so 2. 4 when I go to a university, and 5/6 if/when I go for an M.B.A.

I've been thinking about once I graduate and move up north, I can go to some kind of trade school to learn how to drive forklifts. Whether or not it's just a community college, trade school, or prestigious forklift university, I'll be there.

I started taking university courses in 2002. I plan on graduating in the spring. I did take a year off in between, but that's still 11 years total. Ph.Ds take a while.

3.5 years for BS. 2.5 if they weren't c*nts about my schedule. 2 if they weren't c*nts and I wasn't a lazy ass and took an extra summer class.

Probably 4 - 5 years. I kind of slacked off this first semester.

Well, undergrad will be four years, med school four years, and residency at least four years (up to around nine).

 

For college, it will take me four years, and I'm almost finished with that. With everything else? Well, I don't plan to have a life for a very long time.

Around four years for the degree I am doing now.

 

I am currently in my third year.

 

I am ready to graduate...and yet I am not. Might do some extra courses once I am done my degree. Maybe in alternative dispute resolution.

2 years
Got selected in campus interview for the job immediately in the last year and here I am enjoying the life.
Had I been lazy and wasting time then had to struggle for the right job.
What's really cool is the job place has become my second home and made new friends that are now going to stay for the rest of my life.

It was suppose to take only 4 years, but it took me 4 years and 2 months, because I had to redo a class due to a lazy group.

Undergraduate degree was 2 years and 9 months, or 3 academic years.

Master's degree was 11 months almost to the day.

Training has basically been ongoing ever since, apart from the time I was running my own business.

I didn't go to college.

I decided to take time out and work, seeing as how I couldn't afford it at the time, and my parents couldn't afford to send me.

I guess I never really got around to going back. What, I'm going to pay £10,000 for a Creative Writing degree?

This this this. I regret going to college so so so very much. It's a f*cking scamming network. Hell, just this semester, spent $140 on a stupid required book that the school "made" so I had to buy it directly from them, new. It was literally f*cking copy and pasted sh*t from other books.

$140? Wow, man, that's insane. And unfair - there are other uses for that money. I have to admit, I still want to take my education further, but I never settled on something 'sensible' enough to justify the cost - the things I've been led to believe come naturally to me aren't the most employable skills!

I think degrees do still have their currency in certain professions, though. Just not the one I'm in. The money ... that's a huge issue, though. Getting into debt for an education.

Hope the rest of your degree is going well though!

Just curious, what type of business was it?

I completed a bachelors of arts degree in Poli-Sci along with a handful of useless minors in 4 years @ Southern Illinois University.

after taking a year off, I enrolled in a graduate program for Public Policy Analysis @ Harris School (part of University of Chicago) which took about 1.5 years wrapping up just last Summer.

 

so I guess in total it was about 6 years of college.

Part-time Early Childhood Education Diploma: 4 years. +infant and toddler and special needs certificate.
Modern Languages certificate: 2 years.
I'll be 24ish when I'm done school. Hurrah. Sad I didn't do full-time, could have been done so much earlier.

Bäm, yesterday I nailed down an intership at BMW Regensburg in the body production area for the next semester. After that, I have to write my masters thesis to become a Master of Science in engineering economics after five and a half years of hard work. Can't wait for it
