Undergraduate, BS in Sociology, but all my electives ended up being Chemistry, Physics, Biology, etc. that's what happens when you change majors late in the game.

Juris Doctorate (law) which is what I do now, that and play with fireworks, energetic materials, carpentry, cars and about anything else. ... It's better now that I take my ritalin every day.:)

I've just finished my BA in natural sciences, and am going on to do my MSci in organic chemistry next year. My BA was mainly chemistry, but I also studied metallurgy and materials sciences, maths, physics and experimental psychology to some level. The course lets you specialise more in the later years, so I started with maths, physics, chemistry, metallurgy and materials, then the next year I did two chemistry courses (basically they were pure and applied) and experimental psychology (which was nice and easy, and made an interesting change), last year I did only chemistry (mostly organic and inorganic, but still with some physical and theoretical) and next year I can do purely organic for my MSci. Which I am really looking forward to, because I finally get to forget all the horrible maths that I learnt!
I'm not sure why we get awarded BAs for science degrees. I guess it's just one of those little quirks that you get at 800 year old establishments!

I'm still in high school... it's a school in wich I learn mainly natural sciences.
Hopefully I'll finish high school with good grades and have at least some Postgraduate degree.. but only time will show ;) :D

I worked in an environmental testing lab while finishing my B.S. (Heh!) in Chemistry with a second discipline in Nuclear Science. Then I worked for six years as a Research Chemist studying carbohydrate chemistry whilst repeatedly attempting to get into graduate school. I was finally accepted and completed the work required for an M.S. (Analytical Chemistry); I then was accepted into the doctoral program (Organic Chemistry), which is where I am today (which is where, it seems, I will be likely to petrify).

:D

I don't think I ever posted this but I got my BS in Chemistry earlier this year. I plan to go onto higher education one of these days providing that I don't somehow end up with my own lab by some quirk of fate in the near future.

I'm a second year MD student. Did you manage to do any real chemistry during your MD course? I'm still 19, and have done a lot previously, but now I really got stuck and I don't have as much time to delve into my hobby as I wish.

Anyways, MD is what I'm studying right now, and it is my life. Am hoping to get this MD ready and go into surgery right afterwards. During these years my interest has focused on drugs. Nice to know there's an MD here.

Did very little chemistry during medical training. It is mainly during the past few years that I've had a lot more time to pursue hobbies. I'm not sure what exactly triggered the re-awakening of my childhood interest with chemicals and reactions.

Failed plastecine...

(Naah, LLB - working on Bus/Arts at the moment)

Had the marks - had the choice, law or medicine...

The question then became, which to do?

Medicine- help people to feel better and save them; or

Law- Help people to screw others and fuck them over....

The choice was easy:D

PS It helped that I have been clinically diagnosed as having an anti-social personality disorder:(

I'm in 10th grade. Planning on going into Chemical Engineering, maybe with a little Mechanical on the side (I just hope I can get into a decent school, English and French are killing my GPA :( ) So far I'm mostly into inorganic chem, maybe sometime soon I'll venture a little more into organic chem.

Chemistry class is pretty pathetic... the teacher is good but... the class is sad, i've learned very little. Even when its this easy 50% of the class has no idea what's going on... oh well, next year I'll take AP Chem, there might be a good percent who actually want to be in the class.

By the way I love this forum. I've learned far more here than in school, or really anywhere else for that matter. I'm pretty well addicted to it, my parents are always bitching at me because I spend so much time here rather than doing my homework :D
