    "Holy crap kid-A!!! When did you do all that? Post-JW or during?!"

    LOL! I was "born-in" to a JW family, but never really believed any of it and was never baptized. I did a 5 year Bachelor of Science, followed by a 6 year Doctoral degree and 3 years Post-Doctoral before landing a Professorship, pretty standard timelines in academic research. You have to LOVE research to be willing to spend 11 years at University! LOL

    >Good luck with your thesis, sounds like an interesting area

    I was told that only 10% of the U.S. population graduates from a four year university, so that % of witnoids doing so isn't too far off. I finished in May of this year with a degree in English.

    B.A. English

    M.A. and Ph.D. in Medieval British Lit (Chaucer, which should tell you where I got my nick...)

    All post-JW, but I left at 18.

    Naw, I'm just a lowly cultural anthropologist. I don't deal with tree ring data. I know lots of archies, though, obviously, as they're huge at ASU.
