    That has to be bogus. There is no way a school would grant so many duplicate degrees.

    There are so many degrees there that it actually seems rather silly.

    I like how he uses Lt. Col. in a large font and then puts CAP in a much smaller one.

    And he wonders why he can't get a high-paying job. Probably employers look at that list of degrees and figure he's more interested in self-engrandizement than in teamwork. I'd be interested in how many of those degrees are based on "life experience" rather than actual academic work. At some point, getting more and more degrees is just silly. If you're interested in a subject, study it on your own.

    He already has a career.
    He's a professional student.

    Who in the world gets 14 ASSOCIATES DEGREES?! Plus, he has another 3 "in progress". I think someone suggested that it might be bogus, but who would FAKE 14 associates degrees?

    He also has 3 bachelors degrees, but only one Masters and his PhD is "in progress" as well. That is one of the most bizarre resumes I have ever seen.

    Now I don't feel so silly! Notice that all but one of his AA's from Tyler Junior College are from the same day. For God's sake, just list AA-Tyler Junior College. Does he really need to list "Major: General Studies" and "Major: Interdisciplinary Studies" as if they are different degrees!

    Exactly. If you have double majors or double concentrations granted at the same time by the same school, it's listed under the same event heading- by breaking them down he looks silly.

    FWIW, I think 14 associate degrees is about as useful as 14 high school diplomas. I can't see any reason to list the associates on his resume since he has his bachelor's and master's degrees. (he might ethically be obligated to list them if an application process asked him to list all of his degrees- but that's not the case on a resume)

    I know exactly why he can't land more than an entry level job- he's in school earning redundant degrees while eveyone else in his age-range is climbing the corporate ladder. He keeps returning to go.

    I wonder if this individual may have psychological issues. I read through some of his material, and it just strikes me as exceedingly odd.

    Maybe he's a psych major, since most of those folks are odd in the first place, lol.

    I'm betting he's not married. But that's just speculation.

    Since when did having multiple degrees become a DSM-IV diagnosis?

    I was going to say, if that's a psychological problem, maybe we'll all be in the same asylum....
