I'm a Michigan State grad and studied computer science with a minor in telecommunications (used it for web/audio/video classes).

Georgia State University (MANY moons ago) and I was going to major in (go ahead, laugh) philosophy. Then I discovered the Real World...and left.

I went to the Universtiy ot Texas at San Antonio, Business Management, but due to financial and personal problems I dropped out after 2 semesters...the rest of my education was learned through experience...
I did go back to career school at age 30 and got a Accounting Certificate (what it is good for, who knows! Never got a job in that field) it looks good on the resume...

Crackers, my brother graduated from A&M and he is your age...you may have gone to school with him...

Heck, we were "neighbors" - my dorm was right next to the 'Quad. We used to lob water-balloons (using surgical tube launchers) over the Waggies' dorm onto them. But not during formations! We weren't all that suicidal!

(Let me guess - nobody has a clue to what I'm talking about, right? "Aggie" is a different language... )
