Walk into practically any professional establishment (offices of doctors and lawyers, being good examples) and youâ€™ll find, proudly displayed among other such accolades, those college credentials.
thank god not in my country. How rude that is to show off.
if all goes well i should have a B.S. in Biology this june
Had a Diploma, then upgraded it to Bachelor in Computer. Used to be really proud about it, but not anymore. When people who don't have one can earn much higher than you, and even ends up in a higher position, that says a lot, right? Which is the reason why I'm not considering a Master degree.If I were given scholarship to take one abroad though, I'd gladly take it. Especially in other non-Computing major like Art, Music, Psychology, etc, or Experience-Based like you said. For the cultural and social experience, nothing more. Definitely won't be taking one in my home country, because the title no longer have 'good' reputations here. It's not prestigious anymore, and there's a notion that one can easily 'buy' said degree anyway.
Well, sometimes when you study something for six to eight years straight (depending on the country), you might want to display it on your wall
Not sure where the certificate is these day...
