Thread Name: Non-Music - Academic Success Question
Subject: RE: Non-Music - Academic Success Question
My experience is somewhat "outside the lines" but I acquired my BS (I'm not saying I invented bullshit, but BS and I are so intimately acquainted that it IS hard to tell where I leave off and BS begins..)..no, not that bs, I mean my bachelor's degree, on the strength of my professional life.
It's not an honorary degree, but the college recognized that they didn't have anyone as advanced in my field as I, so it was therefore silly for them not to acknowledge the fact by giving me credit hours.
Chalk one up for the "School Of Life"
on the other hand...
...I was cut no slack in acquiring teaching certification, even though I was clearly capable--proven by experience.
