    Hey, I've got an MA. With DISTINCTION. Am I overqualified? Or will I be allowed in if I try really hard to ignore it?

    I only have a lowly BA. But I taught English to squirrels middle schoolers. And I'm a professional copyeditor.

    *holds out plate of fresh scones* Can I come in?

    You're the top half of the bell curve covering for those of us still working on our undergrad (in engineering, not english, but the first three letters are the same, so I'm counting it).
    You are more than welcome to take anything I say personally, whether it was intended that way or not.

    Eat This.

    I think we'd have to apply a handicap, Old Hack. You have to type with one hand tied behind your back and must use the word "chagrin" at least once in every post.

    I dunno; my official I.Q. is 42, so . . .

    And honestly, if I were all that smart, why would I need so much schooling, hmm?

    I don't have an English degree either. But I am English so I don't need one to be a grammar pedant

    Much to my chagrin, I often have to type with just one hand because I'm too busy lifting my glass with the other.

    [How was that?]

    I'm going to sit and stare jealously for a moment. Going nuts waiting for my masters results to drop through the letterbox.

    Well, it's better than other possible reasons to be typing one handed on the internets.

    According to post #51, we must all be married, female English professors who eschew the use of caps. Everybody else, out of the pool!

    Can we sit on the pool edge and dangle our toes in the water?

    Sorry, I only have my AA in English. Course, I have just started my Master of English candidacy.

    I'm guessing spending the last twelve years as a Technical Writer doesn't really stand out among this august crowd. I'll just sit in the corner over here and stare at my print on demand, self-published books.

    I have an AA in Liberal Arts.

    Someday I'll finish my BA. I'm only 2 semesters shy, and don't really think I need it anyway.

    I can put quite of bit on English on the cue ball when I'm running the table; does that count?
