Suppose X is a successful practicing lawyer. He already had a bachelor degree, and some graduate degrees under his belt. He realizes after watching startrek, he wants to be a research physicist in a university. Is he too late to go back to school? I suspect he needs to get in order: 1.Bachelors degree in physics. 2.Masters degree in physics. 3.Ph.d in physics. He would have to get all 1, 2 and 3 in order to reach his dream of being a research physicist. My question is: Is there a limit to he number of graduate degrees one can get in a lifetime?
