    With you on time and effort, but like it or not, the MFA is regarded as the terminal degree and so by definition carries the same "prestige" as a doctorate.

    There are lots of terminal degrees, and they're not all treated equally in terms if prestige. MD's, JD's, MFA's and PhD's all get treated differently in society.

    Not really "the same prestige"...unless maybe amongst other "fine arts" people; but not the general public. A doctorate entitles the person to use the title "Doctor," do holders of MFA's call themselves doctors too?
    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    Two Bachelor's degrees and a Master's.

    I agree with Captain Adverse's comment about the poll options. Pretty badly botched. Sorry joko.

    The reason I grouped Masters and PhD was due to that limit but also a comment my daughter now in an advanced college. She stated she does want a Masters but definitely NOT a PhD, because each opens doors, but a PhD closes some doors too. The "over qualified" thing.

    The part about military education is that did not want to exclude career or specialized military academics and again only had 10 options.

    Besides, get off my ****ing case. I already acknowledged I'm "none to little." So I think I did pretty damn good with the poll.
    Ahhh, I didn't realize it was multiple choice, so I did not vote when I made that comment. I fell into seven categories and thought it was looking for the highest level attained only. My mistake, I've checked off all seven now.
