Aha. That explains it. She was in Playboy in 1994, when she was 21/22 years old. She apparently graduated from West Chester University at age 18. She may well have gotten the advanced degrees (particularly the PhD) after appearing in Playboy....though, according to her entry in Wikipedia, she was also in Penthouse at age 30, in 2002 or so.
I got hung up in semantics...she wasn't a PhD who appeared in Playboy, she was a Playboy Playmate who later got a PhD.
You name Skunk Baxter and Brian May and MISSED Tom Scholz
Lead guitarist for Boston and creator of the Rockman - the personal guitar practice amp he built out of spare camera parts... Graduate and Masters (I think) from MIT in Electrical Engineering.
Hmm. I may be thinking about it from a US-centric standpoint, and from my personal experience, and that of some friends of mine (which may not be typical). Assuming one starts college at 18 or so, and goes "straight through"....
- 4 years for your Bachelor's degree
- Another year or 2 for your Master's
- Another 3 (at least) for your PhD
Add that all up, and that gets you 27, which, I suppose, isn't that far different from you. YMMV, of course.
What I was initially reacting to was the idea of a 21 (or so)-year-old with a PhD. Even though she did whip through school, it sounds like she might have gotten the PhD after she was a Playmate.
