woodfordr saidWell if he's gotten this far without it, what does that say about whether it's needed?
It was apparently needed to impress an interviewer, and his audience. Read the link. And it wasn't 1 degree, but 2: English & Biology.
For English there is no evidence whatsoever of a degree. For Biology the Rand camp is now claiming, after the interview, that medicine involves biology, so that would be a correct statement for an MD.
Except, I was a University Asst. Registrar, my duties including evaluation of transfer student transcripts, and determining final eligibility for issuance of diplomas. You know, tallying up all the credits, validating that these course and their grades were adequate for a degree in accordance with degree requirements.
And no way is a Doctor of Medicine the same as an undergraduate degree in Biology. If it were equivalent and issued concurrently then Dr. Rand could produce his separate undergraduate diploma in Biology. He can't, no more than he can produce a degree in English, which he claimed he also has.
