My undergraduate degree, which I completed in four consecutive years, was a BM. I don't know where that puts me.

That puts you with me, Dick. I took 21 or 22 hours each semester so I could get done faster. With two kids, the bills were more important than sleep. There were times though that I wished the dean would NOT sign the waiver for course overload. AS,BS,MS And I still ended up computer challenged.

It took me 6 years and 196 credits to get my BS. Of course they screwed up and gave me a BA, which is completely BS!

It took me 6 years to get my BA, but an Architecture degree is a 5-year program, so I guess that isn’t too bad. I lost a year by transferring from community college, but ended up saving myself at least $10,000.

About Me

Well, I am a 16 year old kid, maybe the youngest member on the forum, but I love the Adiirondacks. My grandparents bought a house in wells after vacationing in well for a few years. Since then, our family has been in love with the area. My grandfather actually started the Jolie Montaigne Property Owners Association in Wells. My family never hiked, until I started reading Barbara McMartin's hiking the adirondacks series. We haven't stopped hiking since. Usually it's me, my uncle and my mom that do all the hiking together.
I'm planning to graduate high school, go on to college, get a great job, so that I can take off and spend my time in Wells,NY!

Just found this thread

So I figured I'd respond. My name is Karen, I'm 45, married, mother of three daughters and (I hesitate to admit it) a lawyer, although I neither ambulance-chase nor drive a BMW. Actually, I work for a federal judge in Buffalo. My first mountain was Mt. Mansfield in I think 1974. My first ADK high peak was Esther with my college boyfriend and some of his Plattsburgh buddies in 1980. In the early 80's, I climbed about 20 of the high peaks and my connection to the area and the wilderness experience was forged. Marriage (to someone else), law school and kids slowed my progress on the 46 over the years. But in the last few years, I've started hiking with my middle daughter (now 13 years old) and I plan on completing the 46 this summer (6 to go). I've enjoyed reading the posts on this forum, and I appreciate the advice I've been given. Living in WNY, I'm really far from the mountains, and this site keeps me connected. Thanks!

OK here goes...my name is Pat (i've posted here a bit and on VFTT and on Tim's board). I'm 46, married and a father of 4 great kids aged 15-20 and live in Apalachin, NY about 15 miles west of Binghamton, NY...my two boys and I finished our 46 in June of 2004. My youngest daughter is at 42 peaks (I didn't get my oldest daughter out in time and lost her to the Gap store in Placid). I've always liked the woods...grew up in a small town in NW PA up on Lake Erie and used to go to the Allegheny Nat'l Forest to camp, hike and hunt/fish a bit. I hiked the northern Presidentials solo while in college. Didn't do much hiking until the kids got older and started back up in about '95 with the boys in the Catskills where we did about 10 peaks or so. Always wanted to hit the ADKs (I remember finding the old 1950ish ADK 46er book in the library at Penn State back in 1978 while a student there and thinking that they sounded pretty cool....) and finally got there in about '95 or '96. First ADK hike was Wright and Algonquin and I was hooked. I love hiking with my kids and have enjoyed seeing them grow up while at it. I'd like to hit the Presidentials or Katahdin this summer (after finishing my daughters 46) and would like to try a real bushwack. Now that the kids are getting older (god I can't believe how old sometimes) I'll have to find other hiking partners so if anyone i slooking for middle aged (god that can't be me!) guy to hike with let me know.....
