Curiously, how many of you study, or have studied?

If so, what? when? do you get fancy letters after your name?

I got the fancy letters after my name from my father.  He was born before me.

Hmm... maybe thinking of getting a kindle or maybe putting books on my pad.



I thought only girls use pads.

I don't have an M.D. or a PhD.
But I studied Computer System Technologies from 2003-2005 and got an associates.

Currently I am studying general education and Mathematics. Working towards my bachelor's. I have started going back to school in 2011.
I am only a part time student.

I just realised I didn't put what I'm studying.

I've completed a Bachelor of Science, Majoring in Statistics and Operations Research, Minoring in Physics, and ICT.
So I get a fancy BSc after my name.

I'm now doing a Statistics honors project.

Care to elaborate on your eloquently worded query?

I think that's a culture thing. We don't put BSc behind our names, or if we do I've never seen or heard anyone do it. Only time school changes our name is if we get a doctorate: Dr. Dracian. We have sex monikers: Mr., Mrs., Ms.
So if I went to Australia I would get to put AA behind my name? LMAO

The letters after your name is only a professional thing. It was more me asking about if anyone is studying. But one of the "perks" of having completed a bachelors degree (or higher) is that you do get to add things to your title. I'm pretty certain it's a fairly universal thing. Just something people probably wouldn't notice unless you were looking at a professionals CV.
Here's what I'm talking about.

For example, if I had a business card I would have BSc. following my name. And that is also how it appears on my CV. However my name appears as per normal on drivers licence, passport, letters, etc.

As I said, it was more my round-about way of asking about people studying.

I'm pretty sure everywhere also uses sex monikers.

AA? You've completed alcoholics anonymous?

The letters "JR" do not appear on my driver's license, mail or passport.  Therefore it counts.

LOL nice one. Associate of Arts.

I've seen planty of business cards, met people, seen their signatures, and I have never seen this stuff after a name. Sounds more like a perk for being in Australia lol.
