Loyola University, Chicago, 1972, Psychology.

It should have been 1970 but for the ADD. Had a lot of fun freshman year at Northern Il University but was asked not to return. I was originally a chem major but missed the first two weeks of calculus and arrived for an exam. Decided psych more closely fit my proclivities. Got almost straight A's at Wilson Jr College in year two and then finished at Loyola. A year spent working at a Psych hospital rounded out the extra two years it took to graduate.

Dartmouth College 1977 BA Philosophy - and yes, I've found the degree very helpful (coursework and school reputation) in my field of work - finance and managerial accounting.
St Michael's College 1982 - 1988 never did quite finish the MBA, but got all the finance and accounting credits in.
Dartmouth College Tuck Executive Education 2006 - 3 week intensive last year, that cured me of wanting any further education!

I remember Douglass as the women's college of Rutgers, right? Are the two still separate?

One of my earliest "serious" flames was a Douglass student from New Brunswick. Still remember a lot of the details. A lot of the details.

Douglass had a fine academic reputation.

This appears to be a very educated group considering that in 2000 15.54% of the population over 25 had a college degree, and 8.86% and advanced degree.

I started at Bloomfield College in NJ (a small private school with a liberal curriculum and many interdisciplinary majors). I was commuting and not getting much of the "college experience" so after one semester I transferred to University of South Florida. Lived in the dorms but it still wasn't the college experience I hoped for (I had these romantic ideals of students sitting around talking about philosophy), so I came back to Bloomfield and did sophomore year there. Then transferred to Kean College (NJ state college, lived in the dorm one year, commuted senior year). Was able to finish on time even though I changed my major from nursing to psychology.

Realizing that job opportunities wouldn't be great with just a BS in psychology, I got a MS in Occupational Therapy from Medical College of Virginia/Virginia Commonwealth University, intending to work in psychiatric OT upon graduation in 1978. Just my luck---the field of psychiatric OT dried up thereabouts due to new psychotropic meds and deinstitutionalization of psych patients!

While I didn't get the college experience I hoped for and met many smarter people who had never gone to college than those in college, at least I didn't graduate with any debt!

U.S. Naval Academy '82, B.S. chemistry with a lot of engineering there and at other Navy nuclear power schools.

Naval Postgraduate School '89, M.S. "Engineering Science", their degree for computer science with a weapons engineering specialty.

The thesis quenched my thirst for higher learning but the explosives research was a lot of fun...
