    BTW, I'm glad I didn't have to enroll at an actual college for my BTSA. I went through the district for the meetings, etc.

    I went through the district for BTSA, too, but they offered for $300 I could get 6 credits through San Diego State or something. Of course I did it because it moved me a step on the salary schedule.

    The luck was in the timing. We almost moved to LA this year, with UCLA and USC...it's a lot more difficult (and expensive) to get into PhD programs. This program is pretty unique in it's focus...much more content focused than others I looked into.

    I guess technically, I can add El Camino College because I went there at age 9 to take fun summer classes...typing was one of them.

    I believe I went to another college too as a child for calligraphy & cartooning classes.

    I went to Del Tech in the summers in high school and also during my senior year of high school. I had a semester done when I started college.

    Then I went to UD for bachelor's and master's, and I have taken one class at Wilmington College (ug).

    So... 3 total. Planning on going Ivy League for my doctorate at UPenn one day, but I will probably get a second master's somewhere else first.

    I went to the same university three different times!

    1988-1993--BA
    1994-1996--MA
    2004-- MA

    Wasn't planning a second masters, but in 2004 I got the opportunity to take two free classes AND get a stipend. Then two years ago I earned THREE free classes for having an intern and student teacher. I'm getting two more free this year for having another intern. Even if I wasn't planning a second masters, who turns down FREE masters classes?

    1 community college.
    1 for my BA and returned to same place for MA, where I also did not finish the final paper. People say I should finish, but I don't care about it anymore. I would rather get an additional masters in history because it is what I love. However, they may not like the fact that I did not finish one MA already...:eek:

    -Mount Mercy College- B.S. Elem. Ed.
    -Kirkwood Community College to pick up a summer class I didn't want to pay incredible amounts for at MMC.
    -Credits towards my M.A. and recertification are through Drake University.

    In a perfect world I would love to go to the University of Iowa to get my M.A. in Speech and Language Pathology! But it's a full time program so I'm thinking it's not going to happen any time soon! :(
