    What is your level of formal education?

    This academic year I'll have earned my masters.

    FYI, you might want to separate Masters degrees from PhDs (if possible). Those are two very different animals.
    The entire polls is messed up, there's more to fix than that.

    True, but the OP did admit he has very little formal education, so we can cut him some slack.
    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.

    PhD in math. My qualifying exams were in algebra, logic and probability and my dissertation fell into combinatorics and number theory.

    B.A in English. I could probably gotten a certificate in Medieval Studies but I didn't bother to apply for it.

    One thing I learned was that a cultural norm asserted in Shakespeare's plays and other Renaissance literature was 'homosocialism' -- which, far from being a conservative's worst nightmare, maintains that Platonic male friendships are the primary building block of society, or at least the most civilizing influence on collective behavior. The nuclear family is tertiary to that.

    This is and other fascinating bits of lore courtesy of four years and fifty thousand or so dollars in tuition.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    I was shown the door. Really I was just misunderstood.

    Math dissertations are so crazy. The titles are like gibberish and the content like sanskrit. Fascinating though at the same time. I remember when I took just basic Calc I in college (even though I had tested out of it) and I started having crazy dreams about math half way through the semester.

    I ended up acing the class but it required serious effort. It was the last class I ever took that both challenged and motivated me. My biggest educational regret was that I allowed myself to be scared away from engineering, math, science, and stats as majors.
