Hello all, I've decided to drop this whole "get a real degree" thing, and start my own diploma mill. BUBBLE GUM UNIVERSITY: My school offers a Ph.D. in [Bubble Gum Making] for 56 semester credits, plus a 100 page thesis and a required 6-month intership at the school. Each credit will cost $250.00, and I will accept 1 credit in transfer...with a $100.00 processing fee. Courses and candy making kits will be nonexistent, so we'll just pretend you did the work. Send the money, get the diploma. You can also get a certificate in Taffy-Pudding Distribution during your "fourth year of studies" - which again, does not actually take place (for about $500.00). The school will be located in candyland, just down the street from Willy Wonka's factory on chocolate ave. Interested parties, should send $1000 (to help pay for the school's diploma mill press ink), plus an application fee of say...$150.00 . Accredidation is through the newly created (through my own hard effort) "International Budget Committee For Self-Employed Educators and Investment Bankers". Details to follow.... - S. P.S.: LEGAL DISCLAIMER: I was simply making a point. There is no such school by my creation, nor any accredidation through my making.
