  •  Congratulations! (10+ / 0-)

    I started back to school through a diploma factory (probably a mistake) and from there went on to community college, then four-year university, then graduate school. Ten years after going back to school with a high-school diploma earned with a D average and no degrees, I have my AA, AS, BS, and MA, and I am about to defend my Ph.D. and receive the same title you want - Doctor. And I want to do something great, too. I think it's awesome that you are on the same path. All my best to you.

      I can't remember where I heard this quote, but I love it ...and I'm sure I'm mangling it, but you get the idea...

      People always think that you have to be smarter than most people to get a PhD. That's not true.  You just need to be more determined.
