At what age did you complete certain degrees? (For instance: at what age did you get an associates degree, vocational degree, bachelors degree, masters degree, etc). Just put up a post here then.

I graduated high school at 16 almost 17 and then took 8 years to finish a BFA. It was mostly because of financial concerns though.

I'll be 18 when I graduate, almost 19.
It will probably take 5-6 years for University as well.

I got my Kindergarten diploma at age six! :lol:

I'm still in high school, though. I'm currently 18 years old and I'll still be 18 on my graduation date, though one month away from turning 19.

13 elementary school(as combined result of when I was born in my birth year[i.e. after school year start] and they couldn't send me to xsummer school because my mother wouldn't have been well enough to drive me each morning/hold me back because we were moving)

20, nearly 21 - highschool diploma, though the V.P. attempted to eject me between my 19th and 20th b-days.

now 25 and accumulated between two different diplomas I've flunked out of maybe not even a semester of college....

Now how's that for "book smart/looking good on paper????

*raising eyebrows with mocking/saecastic inqisitiveness*

I tested out of high school right before my 17th birthday and started going to community college right away (while I was a ward of the state and living in a youth shelter - like I needed any help standing out)....only to drop out because I started to get tired of institutional learning and I wasn't getting along with people.

I have tried to go back to college a couple of times since then, and I have found that I just don't do well with most of the instructors I have met at these schools. I usually end up either helping the teacher teach the class (I had a Linux instructor who relied on me a bit more than seemed appropriate since I wasn't the one getting paid) or pissing them off for pointing out inaccuracies and then being the teacher's personal scapegoat as a result.

I have reached a point in my adult life now where I am simply unwilling to subject myself to this, so I am taking a different approach. I am going to make another attempt to go back to school, this time taking all my classes online through the local college. I start at the end of March, and I think using the online learning model is going to prove more successful for me.

High school diploma at 17, Bachelor of Arts at 23, and I'll have a Master of Arts at 26 (unless I fail a class, which is unlikely :D). I breezed through high school, academically, only to flounder for the first two years of college, thanks to juggling work and classes and an increasing sense of "I'm doing everything the way I see everyone else doing it, so why isn't this working?"
