I earned two Masters degrees from Columbia University in the City of New York in 1988: a Master of Public Health from the Mailman School, and a Master of Science in Urban Planning from the School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation.

– In exchange for free tuition and a stipend, I worked my way through grad school as a research assistant in the Center for Population and Family Health writing budgets for grant proposals using the novel electronic spreadsheet (Supercalc) and running statistical analyses using SAS. That now seems like a very long time ago.

I studied in Paris for a year, Japan for a semester, and received a bachelor of arts from the State University of New York (SUNY) at Binghamton in French Literature in 1983.

– Undergraduate loans were minimal (think SUNY in the late 70’s, early 80’s) and after a few deferrals paid off in full decades ago.
