She told me the French degrees are the only ones the US doesn't recognize, but that seems very odd to me! Does anyone have any information about which degrees are recognized where? I know it's a big question, but you all seem so knowledgable here. ;)
What was her subject? And when did she take her MA? I ask because my mother-in-law (who was French) found that her degree in law was useless when she moved to England in the late '50s, because of the differences between the two legal codes. I can imagine that something similar might apply in some other subjects too. Otherwise, it's all very odd indeed.
Belated congratulations to Ania, by the way! Any smugness is entirely justified, I'm sure. ;-)
Her American degree is in French literature, so I assumed her French one was the same. I don't know for sure, though, so I suppose the simplest thing to do would be to ask her.
Since I haven't done so already, may I offer my congratulations to Ania, from a new member of the list. :)

I don't know just why
Desire slowly smoking
