    What a lot of college degrees look like..

    By logging into http://www.framingsuccess.com you can take a sneak peek at what will be hanging on your wall after you finish your degree. For any of you Florida State folks:

    http://www.cob.fsu.edu/grad/pmba/diploma.html <--- FSU features their degree on their official website.\\

    *Note* Not all schools have actual degrees displayed. If there is any degree that does not look as presented, please speak out.

    There are a lot of sites out there where I'm sure you can find degree samples from *AUTHENTIC* schools, but this is kind of a one stop shopping trip for most folks.

    That's a really great site. I checked for the big 3 and they have TESC listed but not the others. :(

    Mine, too, although I think that's because they don't have an actual shot -- looks like they've just got a generic in place.

    The FSU one is right, though.

    Stanford is correct.

    I've never seen a Berkeley diploma, but I assume that it must have a picture of Oski the Bear. So the Berkeley diplomas shown on the web-site can't be right.

    Thanks for all of the responses. I did think of one thing:

    I recall a discussion on here awhile back about whether or not Harvard's degree was printed in Latin. I believe the end result was someone saying that it was, however, the degrees on Framing Success show them in plain English.

    Does anyone know for sure?

    University of Washington looks correct, at least by the standards of my two 20 year old plus diplomas from the UW.

    Although I do recall from another thread on this board a year or two ago, that many colleges and universities change the appearance of their diplomas over time.

    Texas A&M University, the University of Chicago, and Yale University look correct. The University of Texas one is just a generic form, however.

    My only frame of reference is my sister-in-law. Her Harvard College (undergrad) diploma is in Latin, while her Harvard Business School (MBA ) diploma is in English.

    I believe that Jack Tracey has mentioned that his Harvard Extension diploma (undergrad) is in English.

Speaking for my parents...(both of whom got their degrees from this school) the University of Houston diploma is right.North Carolina Wesleyan is not on there, so..................
