    Lord, no!

    Warwick, UEA, Sussex and Aberystwyth as a student. Glasgow and Oxford as staff. At least one more for the MBA (unless I decide to go to SBS), so I'll stall on 7.

    On the other hand, my list of rejection letters from US universities when I wanted an interview for a faculty post as I was coming to the end of my PhD is *much* bigger! I think I gave up when I got to 31 and had enough letters to wallpaper my toilet ;-)

    Hey Bruce - Once upon a time I took some classes at Boston State College. Remember that place? It was down on Huntington Ave, closer to S. Huntington than Kenmore Square. I'm pretty sure they closed that school and turned it into a part of the Massachusetts College of Art. Is that right?
    BTW, I also took classes at UMass-Boston, UMass-Amherst, and BU in addition to my degrees from Harvard and Simmons. This is also my opportunity to mention my Associates degree from Wentworth Institute of Technology. Counting my current school (where I don't really "take courses") that makes eight.

    Boston State became irrelevant after UMass-Boston started up, but I believe the two did co-exist for a number of years.

    For the first six years of my career (1988-94), I was on the Boston Housing Police, and the Mission Hill projects are right across the street from the Mass College of Art. I can't tell you how many reports I had to take where the victim of a car theft or robbery was a Mass College of Art student. :D

    I only included schools / classes of a collegiate level. NCU's LS6010 should count as a preparatory non-credit course. :eek: ;)

    Wow, Ian Anderson appears to be the winner, having attended 13 different schools!!! :D

    Wow! That bad, uh?

    So, does that mean UOP is no longer the worse school you ever attended? ;)

    The teaching methodology at UoP cannot be compared to the lack of a teaching methodology at NCU. Also, UoP has X number of student-contacts, which is crucial for maintaining it's RA status. How is NCU getting around this?

    Wow, this NCU thing is following me around, like stink on s---. It's sort of like when you poke your walking stick in it and then try to shake it off --> but it still stinks. Then you need to throw the stick away and find another one. :eek: ;)
