Did What I Should Have Done When I Was An Undergrad!

I am glad that I went to graduate school.  Not only is it nice to know that I have an advanced degree, but I got the kind of grades I should have gotten when I was an undergraduate.

I actually WENT to class and paid attention - funny how that helped me to get better grades!

I don't actually use my advanced degree anymore, but it was a great educational experience.  I would like to take some more classes!

Bcj - as always, you add that little bit of needed wisdom!<br />

I imagine I am using my degree in some ways (especially since it is in psychology - LOL). Thank you dear sir!

sometimes the value of learning is the learning, in itself.<br />
<br />
anyway, the process itself has influenced who you are and how you interact with people. <br />
<br />
So, i humbly suggest that you are "using" your degree daily.<br />
<br />
Love and peace.<br />

Well, the fact that you got INTO Law School is impressive to me!! Hey, if something isn't right for you, why continue? Law school must not have been a good fit - Grad. School - the subject matter was interesting to me and so I had incentive/motivation to go to the class - it's not like I am THAT disciplined!! Anyway, I have a Master's Degree and am a Stay-at-Home Mom and a sometimes Wedding Director - so much for using my degree.... LOL

Good for you. I was the patron saint of slacking college and I dropped out of law school. I will likely live to regret it.

You are right about that - in fact, sometimes I think learning in school is the easiest learning you will ever do - it's the lessons we learn in life that are the most difficult!<br />

You have been to the Antarctic??? (sorry I peaked at your profile and that caught my eye!)

well done ladies.<br />
<br />
only death or being comatose can rob you of the value of learning.<br />
<br />
not all learning is done at school.<br />

I love learning and going to school too - Smart Girls will rule the world some day, you know??<br />

I hope that your health issues resolve very soon!
