I cast my vote to getting a degree, even though I don't have one.  The point 
was driven home just this week.  I have been the chief tech for over five 
years at the hospital I work at. I have had a manager that has been over my 
department and 3 other departments.  He is leaving and they have reorganized 
the sections.  When they posted the opening the requirements  were MT(ASCP), 
HT(ASCP) or a bachelors degree in science.   When I applied for the job it 
was okay until they found out I did not have a bachelors degree then I was 
out of the running.  Yet management did not know enough about histology to 
know that a degree was not required to be a HT.  So we have got to get out 
there and promote ourselves and be more knowlegdable or we will forever be 
managed by people that do not have knowledge about histology.
