    LOL! Wow, you totally captured how I feel! I came here just to finish my AS degree. Three years later I have accomplished that plus a BSLS, BSHS and in 7 weeks I will finish my MHA. This week I just started a post-bac certificate program. My Dean keeps trying to get me to go for my EdD, but I just can't see myself doing a dissertation, so I'm pretty sure I will be done after this CHIA. I never say never, but I will be 49 when I finish this, so I think I will be done. So yes, I feel like this!

    Yes I feel the same way. I completed my AAS in 09 and lost direction from there. I have accumulated some credits but with no direction as to what degree to complete for my BA.

    I feel this way too. Take a look at all the cool degrees AMU has to offer. The idea of taking air combat courses from military professionals is very cool. I have no idea what I would do with a military strategy course though. On second thought. I do play alot of real time strategy games so maybe I should consider it

    I know right? I drool over the intel courses.

    Ninja Edit: If you want to learn airpower theory check out the AF Doctrine pubs. Dry as all hell but you'll learn exactly how the US military structures all of our air capabilities and how we provide sovereign options for dominant effects to shape the battlespace. And yeah, you can even learn to talk like that.

    I'm right there with ya, so many degree's so little time!

    My oldest has reached college age so I have had to temper my wants. If I had discovered all this a decade ago I think my life might have turned out differently. I have become something of an evangelist for the Big 3 since graduation. If I can't go after the cool degree's I can at least live vicariously through the exploits of friends, family , and co-workers!

    What an expressive photo! It really speaks to someone who is really motivated but maybe isn't sure which career he/she is looking for. Getting 'ever degree' would take quite a while and doesn't always prove to be financially feasible. After all, it is expensive!
