High school for me...Partied a little after that and then joined the life in offshore drilling. Have been here ever since 20 years and am now at the top of my field and have great insurance and make more than some MD's.
My wife is going back to school to get her psyd degree (she is the smart one of us)

|Mango-Jeepin||Bachelors in Business and working on my Masters in Communications and Information Management. Best thing I did was work full time while going to school because everything I learned I immediatly applied to my jobs. But... education is about what you do with it, not what it does FOR you. You should only spend the money if it will support what you want in life. My husband has no college education but tons of LIFE education and has a great job as a carpenter that he loves and is terrific at. I go to him for management advice.|

I'm a little young to be posting but what the hell, graduated highschool with a 3.7.
Well...between then and now I've totaled a 99 blazer, a 99 explorer and I blew up a 91 jimmy s15. I go to work every day at American distilling located in east Hampton ct. They produce witch hazel and I work on the bottling line. It sucks, haha I only work 30 hours a week. They don't want to give me full time because of benefits and blah blah. My insure is through the roof because of all of my accidents, I think it's about $2300/6 months plus my jeep payment. But I'm getting by and hopefully ill go back to college eventually for something!

|Bobinayj||Never finished high school. I squandered it on drugs and alcohol. Started working in the restaurant business when I was 14 years old. Stayed in the business mainly because it tolerated my particular wild life style. Cleaned up my act in my mid- twenties. Took an opportunity to open my own restaurant, then another restaurant, then a catering business. I sold them all and retired at 48 years old. Hey, I guess I could go back and finish high school now.... I just need to decide what I want to do when I grow up.|

|Melissas6570||Associates degree in computer information systems, and started to work for a large computer company. The first job had nothing to do with my degree. I set up an environmental lab, and started testing. We were spending a fortune doing shock and vibration testing so I added a lab for conducting those tests in house. I got board doing that and transferred to the electromagnetic interference lab. That lab had a little more to do with my degree. So I started back to school and got my BS in electrical engineering. I have now been doing EMI/EMC work for both commercial and military programs for over 20 years. I still enjoy it very much, and I learn something new every time we go into test.|
