My impression is that majority of the member here has a college. Consider 30% of the US population has a bachelor or higher degree, I think the education level of the members here is substantially above average.

20 credits of a 90 credit AA degree in DV editing. I may never finish.

Looks pretty accurate to me: 2003 survey from the US Census Bureau.

The numbers are more in the high 20's in those stats, but I'd imagine they'd be creeping upwards towards 30% since it's a few years old, and the numbers have climbed up by about half a percentage point each year.

OK, truth is I am in my last year of PhD (hopefully) so you cannot rule out the possibility that I drop out one day. Still, I put "PhD".

Huh, surprising. I would also be interested in the numbers for ages 25 - 50.

Vote 1 for 2 year degree.

And they said I would never get to boast about going to community college...

Take That!

1 more for PhD. I know there are a couple others too.

I could be interested in doing a doctorate one day if it wasn't for the downgrade in title, I'd much rather be called a master than a doctor

I would separate masters and "professional" degrees. It's possible to get some masters degrees in one year (going 3 full semesters -- fall/spring/summer) and in a field that isn't really of the same degree of difficulty/time as, say, the 3 years required of a law degree (JD). I'd put JD and MD in the same category and PhD in a separate category by itself. Just my biased opinion.

Interesting. I heard a couple of colleagues who have JDs (and econ PhDs) say that the third year of the JD program is just fluff to bring in more revenue for the school.

Don't MDs go to way more years of school? I thought itwas a long time--like 6 years.
