Well, I'm impressed.  At least it was this :-\ instead of this :'(

MS and PhD rolled together or separate?

MS and PhD in a single program, but separate graduation dates.

It's only this  :-\ so far - I haven't gotten into my thesis work just yet. I'm sure it will be  :'( before too long...

Cool, sorry I didn't phrase the question better but you answered what I was thinking anyway.  

For me it was all downhill all the way through.  Being a bugger, field work was great, processing samples was cool (hey, I am a geek), writing was a pain.  Revisions were nearly the death of me.  Nothing worse than an advisor (and he was a good one) that would change your work only to want to change it back again for the next revision >:(  I learned real quick to save old versions of the thesis. ;)

WIT in Boston, 94 - 99 (with a year off in 97).  I am now the proud owner of two pieces of paper, an Associates Degree in Architectural Engineering and a BS in Construction Management.

The school's main selling point is its co-op program.  In order to graduate, you have to have two semesters of co-op working in the industry.  They also give you the option of a third, which most people take (the summer after your sophmore year and before the two official ones).  This program is extremely helpful and gets your foot in the door for when you graduate and are out in the real world for the first time.

I went to the State University of New York at Plattsburgh.  Majored in Mass Communications (TV Broadcast), and had a minor focus on music.  I graduated in 1994, but not before seeing our hockey team, the Cardinals, become the NCAA Div. III National Champions in 1993.
