    Well, I got my college degree, B.A. along with a minor in '07. Then enlisted in the Marines where I earn occasional college credits. But with the way they are adding to the GI bill, I wouldn't be surpirsed if i wind up with a masters in something.

    Why is "I Graduated College" italicized but none of the other answers are?

    Because that's what you voted for.

    Question Somethin' ain't quite right here.

    Something is wrong with the poll calculator.

    I didn't major in math, but right now it shows 0, 13.64, 14.55, 22.73, 20, and 40. All expressed as a percentage of the total votes.

    If you add the numbers, that comes to 110.92% of the votes. I swear I remember that all of something was supposed to = 100%. So what gives? Is this the same computer system that they use to get Mayor Daily and Ted Kennedy re-elected every time?

    Good catch. I think it's because some people voted in more than one category.

    Oh, kinda like dead people voting in Chicago at three different polling places. Now I get it. So that is how those guys get re-elected.

    Graduated High School after four years in the Navy, diploma not needed at the time to get in, when joining the Air Force they said I needed it, so went to night school and finished. After retiring from Air Force went back to college and got my AA. Does Navy "A" school count as a trade school? got that too.
