    I think I’m done. I finished grad school at 25. Passed the bar exam at 25 and the CPA exam at 27. I would say that was pretty much the end, though I do have to get continuing education every year to keep my licenses.

    I looked into going back to get an education degree so I could teach kids at risk for illiteracy. But they make it so hard and so expensive if you’ve already got an education, I never went for that. Now that I’m 45 and a mom, I don’t see it happening in this life.

    I was 24. Someday I might go back…

    I was 18 when I dropped out and got my GED. Then I entered the School of Hard Knocks and so far I am still attending classes there.

    25 since my last formal education. Though I take continuing ed as a part of my proffessional development.

    I quit school the minute I turned 16. I hated it. I did go back and get my GED and I’ve taken a lot of night classes and I had to take quite a few courses during my years of working in the school system.

      My mom did the same thing – on her 16th birthday. When I was little she attended community college at night (before her GED, somehow – I guess things were different in those days). When I was a teen she attended university courses. I believe she got her associate’s degree at the same time I got my bachelor’s.

      We attended one class together. That was different!

      Things really were different back in those days. To think all those years of working in schools and I never even graduated. Nobody even asked me what kind of schooling I had when they hired me. I’ll bet that would never happen now.

    I graduated when I was 23, when I finished the work on my Bachelor’s. I have since taken several community college courses in various things, including Braille and Grant Writing, trying to figure out what direction to go from here. I suspect that there is more schooling in my future, although I haven’t a clue what it will involve, subject-wise.

    I quit highschool at the end of the tenth grade. I figured I had already done my twelve years anyway and that was just enough for me. I was 17 and went into the Navy. I got my GED and since then I have taken various college courses. Heck I almost even finished my degree in horticulture! A few years ago I did go to a Bible College for a bit but never achieved a degree in theology.

    I’d still considering taking some writing courses. Who knows.
