I have my Masters, and 17 years experience and that should trump any new grad with a "higher" degree. The real world is a much bigger place than the scholastic world. Less

Why would anyone be sensitive enough about their lower degree to actually ask that question? A perfect illustration of the mindset at Mountain Land. Less
