Personally, I have used very little of my aerospace engineering knowledge - and barely scratched the surface of my MBA in my work. An English or business degree would have been more useful for my first duty in a squadron.

Being "crazy" must have part of my job description... at least that's what most of my APRs said.

It depends on your definition of the real
world. If you are a weekend warrior and are a civilian most of the month workig in your field then it is very useful.

LT John Chang When I was discharged, I went to school full time and worked full time. Once I had my degree, I started a 33 year career on the Space Shuttle Program. I needed the degree for my career and it came in handy throughout my career.

That's awesome! My senior project was to design a mission to Mars. It would have been awesome to be a part of the space program. Unfortunately, life didn't take me down that route.
