    Finishing high school; will be off to college next August. Probably Mary Washington, unless by some twist of fate William and Mary accepts my application.

    Re: Level of education

    I'll offer you a piece of friendly advice, treat the MBA degree as a good foundation, but don't forget that the real world and the MBA theoretical aren't always compatible, I have seen way too many M.B.A.'s fail in the real world because they came out thinking they knew everything and couldn't get it in their heads that an employee under you who's been there longer might have perspective that that degree could never provide you with. Good luck though man! Hope the best for you.
    I agree, but only in the aspect of a general business focus.

    Oh, and to answer the OP, three bachelor degrees (accounting, finance, economics) and a MBA in accounting.

    Gen-biz guys tend to fall into that description, but if you have a legitimate concentration such as finance or accounting you're not as useless as you seem in an interview. This is especially so if you can get some sort of professional certification (CPA, CFA, CFE, CCMA, blah blah so on so forth). However, if you just get a generic MBA and quit there, you're bound to be some cubicle meat doing generic and mentally tedious chores.
