> Sad isn't it. I have a BS, too and for mental health reasons, went on an extended medical leave from my M.S, program which I have been on too long to have the vredits still count twoard the degree.

<<Hang in there. I know what it's like to lose the drive, or whatever, to finish something like that. I have no clue how I made it through law school -- I went full time at night while working full time. Although I have to say that was one of the happiest periods of my life.

The reason I'm not so hung up on degrees, though, is exactly what you are pointing out. A degree doesn't make you any "smarter," more learned perhaps, but that intellect is there no matter what. You are still intelligent even if you don't have the M.S. degree hanging on your wall.

With the way my brain is working, or not working, I doubt I'd ever get through law school now.

But good luck. Keep the faith. If you want that degree, you'll get it. And if the effort you have to put out is not worth the benefit of the degree, then don't feel like you've failed. Please. You've instead made the intelligent choice that fits your life.
