WOW! Good for you! My best suggestion is to relax into it. I took Cali in 97 and Nevada in 99. The second bar seemed easier in that I knew what to expect. There are a few suggestions I can offer, I will sent you a private message. I'm sure few want to read all about the bar, she says knowingly after boring many friends....

My educational credentials include a Bachelor of Commerce, a diploma (2-year) in Marketing Management, urban land economics, and licensing as a real-estate Broker.

I'm thinking about going back for my MBA in a few years. I'm a little bit reluctant though; once you get out of that "study" mode and work for a few years it’s really hard to get back in to it.

It took us about a quarter to get back up to speed.

If you believe this, then it's probably true.

School, in retrospect, was way easier than anything I've ever done in my life. Truly. If you sit down and do all the stuff they ask of you (within reason) you'll end up doing well. You have to get past not being interested in doing something and just do it, but more often if you're pursuing the degree you'll find something you like. Beats the hell out of a job you hate, because at least you're being challenged.


The one thing you will have to learn is how to get by with hating everybody you go to school with. Seriously, 40% of these people are blowhards and the rest of them straight suck.

Five years at Portland State University to get my General Studies in Social Science with a minor in Communications. I had a lot of fun at the Fraternity (TKE) and am currently employed as a Beer Truck Driver.

Two more semesters (if I pass everything) and I'll have a bachelors in Mechanical Engineering.

God I can't wait to be done with school.

1996Bmw318TI what is the title of your PhD thesis? I imagine you wrote it fairly recently.

I bet I can't understand it but it would be interesting to at least puzzle through the abstract.

I guess alot of people are listing their certifications as well as majors here.

Just finished my Bachelors Degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering last December (endless night school). Also have an Associate Degree from Community College of the Air Force. Over ten years military experience in Satellite/Microwave communications. Aside from school, my proudest achievements are:

(2) Air Medals
(1) Joint Service Commendation Medal
(2) Joint Service Achievement Medals
(5) Air Force Achievement Medals

Hard to qualify what medals mean unless you served your country. For those who have, stand proud.
