    He left with 34 credit hours remaining of the 128 hours needed and a 2.59 average with a triple major. What no one knows is the number of classes he needed to graduate. With a triple major you need more than 128 hours. No one knows what classes he needed to satisfy graduation requirements. He had at least a year of classes remaining, probably more.

    He could have taken all his general education classes in his first two years. Some people do that. In the first two years some/many (most?) take at least a few classes in their major to spice the drudgery of general ed. But for the sake of argument let's give him the benefit of the doubt and say he took exactly all the classes he needed in his first 2 years and completely satisfied his general ed requirements. He would then have two years left to satisfy his major requirements for one major. If he got the classes he needed exactly when he needed them (something as you know that is often impossible) for one major only and he left 34 credit hours short, then he left with a year early.

    Walker may not be like most college students. He may have taken the classes needed for one major and had only the classes remaining for the other two majors. He probably didn't, but he could have done it that way.

    Far more likely, he probably had a class or two remaining to satisfy general education requirement. Also he probably mixed classes from his 3 majors. If he did that it would be highly likely that he doesn't have enough hours in any of the 3 majors to graduate in 34 hours. He could easily have a year and a half left to graduate with one major. Those who have gone to college know that that scenario is much more likely.

    It is my guess that Walker did not get booted from school. I suspect that in class hours he may appear to be a senior but in reality he left school as a sophomore or as a rising junior at best.

It is a position that usually carries a lot more responsibility than the typical County Commissioner


    Another distinction, is that in a general law County a county commissioner generally attends maybe two meetings a month, and are part time. A county executive, is a full-time position

    Of a county of 1 million people with an annual budget of over a billion dollars, then governor of a state of 5 million. That's a very accomplished political career

    Well, look at Palin.

    It's pretty clear that quitters attract a significant portion of the GOP vote.

    Re: Scott Walkers lack of College Degree.

    Why is no one questioning Jeb Bush's level of education? He had 2 1/2 years of college in Latin Affairs. That's it.

    But the Left absolutely wants Jeb Bush, not Walker, to be the Republican nominee. First, it will be much easier a campaign for Hillary against Jeb and, regardless, even if Jeb Bush won they still prevented a conservative from being in the White House and will get their millions of new Latino Democrat voters thru Jeb Bush too.

    So continue to watch the media push Jeb Bush and gun down any other Republican.

    There are a number of reasons I would never support Walker, but honestly Walker's lack of a degree is not one of the reasons.

    Re: Scott Walkers lack of College Degree.

    apparently 9 presidents had no degree, and a degree didn't safeguard us from that monumental dumbass bush II

    i find it a bit hard to swallow that they alone can appoint SCOTUS judges, all of whom since early 1940s had a law degree, without being educated themselves

    other than that i don't really care

    idk, i had like 40 credits before finishing high school...

    in a lot of programs, you can apply certain gen ed credits towards majors - ex: inorganic chem for a premed major plus the science gen ed. This allows you to skip intro classes and add majors without taking 5 years.

    However, you can declare a new major without dropping the old one (i wouldn't even know how to do this), so he probably just had the 3 majors with no intention of finishing 2 of them. After failing a 3rd time, he dropped out

    So he may as well have been a freshman, being unable to handle upper level classes in any major

    Then he has enough hours to equal a degree.

    Of itself, the paper means nothing in terms of education.
