Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

Parents' highest level of education vs. yours?

Posted by   + Show Post

My dad has a BS, my mom went to a 4 year college but never graduated.

Grandparents? One grandfather has a Masters, I'd don't think any of the others went to college, but I'm not positive. I know they all graduated from HS though. Oh and my step-grandmother has her Masters too.

One sister has her BA and our youngest sister hasn't finished college.

I have a BA and MA.


DH's fam:

Dad did a 2 year trade school, Mom HS grad, his grandmother AND her mother (great grandmother!) both have/had BS's. His grandmother is in her 80's so I think it's pretty amazing that her mother went to college!

DH has a BA.

My mom and dad have their B.A/B.S., and my mom is currently obtaining her M.S.

Both my grandpas have their B.A., my grandmothers completed high school, one was a homemaker, the other was a very successful artist.

My parents both have law degrees. I don't know about my grandparents; but my father's father was an accountant, and my mother's father was a pharmacist, so they must have gotten college degrees. I have a BA, and am considering going back to school for my MSW.

My husband and his parents do not have college or even high school degrees. My husband went to trade school.

My son is currently in college.

Out of my grandparents, only one had a BA. I know my Grandpa never finished 8th grade(farm kid) and I know my other set probably didn't even finish HS.

My mom graduated HS, my dad did not.

I will be done with my Associates this year and hopefully start working on a BA right away.My Grandma has pushed so hard for this... Only grandkid who went to college. I want to finish a BA to make her proud.

Both my parents had their HS diploma and then went back to college later in life. I only have my HS diploma.

ETA: FIL has only an 8th grade education and now makes 200k a year. DH has a bachelors degree in advertising.

I'm not sure if my grandparents finished high school. I don't think so.

My parnets graduated high school.

I'll graduate with my Masters degree in August of this year.
