I'm working on my last class to complete my bachelor's degree; Major in accounting. Until last April I worked full-time since high school, so it's taken me a while to get through. I can't wait to get this degree and back to work though.

I've been in your shoes, and the constant working does make you a bit more financially responsible, IMHO.

I'm working my Master's in Computer Tech, wireless device applications (think cell phone applications) at Purdue. IMHO, the Masters degree is easier than my Bachelors in ChemE was, but I've got a different perspective on life now, too.

MBA would be a great fit with engineering if you're looking to management or project management. I suggest starting earlier rather than later, especially if you current company will cover a majority or all of your tuition and fees. I regret not having started three years sooner. Good luck!

Got kicked out of Eastern Michigan University and I have been taking classes ever since. One of these days I will finish my damn degree. Then it is on to more degrees - once I get situated with my 3 house thing I am going to hit the books again. Things have been too damn hectic the last couple of years - before it was my job and 80 hours a week, etc. Lately it has been the ex and the kids, etc. Always something. But I plan on getting multiple degrees just to do it. I don't need a degree as I have got this far but I just want to do it to do it. Alot of morons actually think that piece of paper holds some weight or something. I have got to where I am today through hard work and more hard work. Would a degree have helped? Yeah helped me get to where I am faster so I have no clue what I am doing. No I started at the very bottom and worked my way up. I know what every single operation and part is in my business as I have touched them all and have done pretty much every job. But I don't think I will ever quit going to school - you can never stop learning.

you screwed if u do, ur screwed if u dont..if u get a degree, they'll call you overqualified, and if you dont, they hardly even look at you these days. :skep:

real world experience is the best way to boost ur standing with an employer, but these days, in my industry, u gotta have the freekin degrees on ur resume, now more than ever.

I'm going to Indiana State for finance. I was in the Air Force 7 years and the GI Bill is paying for my education, which is absolutely wonderful. I've got 2 1/2 semesters left. Can't wait to be done.

i'm going to try to get an internship for next summer. I currently work full time also while going full time to school too. My current job has pretty much nothing to do with my degree, but i have a feeling if i wanted to i could move up the ladder where i am at. i just don't think my current job is what i want to do for the rest of my life.
