    Re: What is your level of formal education?

    I don't even know what a "formal" education is. Is it just like education, but with a suit and tie?

    I'm 32 years old and learning. I had a dead spot in my career of learning from the ages of about...15-25, give or take. Learned a FEW things in those years, but they were hard lessons, because I already knew everything. But for the last 7 years? I've been working on my Phd on life. I have successfully learned plumbing, auto mechanics, some auto engineering, electrical sciences, carpentry, masonry, construction, web page design (though I'm not very good), auto racing, cocktail mixology, oh you get the point.

    To answer the question, I have a BFA.

    But my knowledge base eclipses that and then some.

    No; Tux. Suit and tie is semi-formal.

    Why the big debate over the JD? I don't get the significance here. Weren't we just listing our credentials? I didn't get specific about mine, but I guess I could have.

    yeah we ought to get back on track. For even the most important law jobs (Yale Law professor or US Sup Ct justice) the JD is the terminal degree. same with the MBA for business while a masters in say history is not sufficient to be say the Sterling Professor of History at Yale or a department chair at Stanford

    Mine is a Master of Engineering Management. It's similar to an MBA for engineering, just not as widely known. My Bachelor's is in engineering.

    Re: What is your level of formal education?

    I was trying to be funny a while ago, but back when I got out of the Marine Corps I seriously considered law school and was talked out of it because of the over abundance of attorney at the time and the projections for many more over the next 20 years. The direction I took worked out well, but I often wondered if there really were that many lawyers out there now. Are there really too many?
