    It might have been interesting to put in some kind of minimum age limit. Or just an additional option 'still studying'.
    Now an 18 year old member will most likely vote for 'high school', but he/she might take on further studies. This might blur the poll results.

    I've elected not to vote due to the aforementioned issues, but one of the things that irks me about recruitment sites in general or anywhere that asks for your level of education is that they only tend to give you a "Some college" option where "Bachelor's degree" is the next step up. "Some University" would be more accurate, as I finished college and walked away with my A-Levels without a problem.

    In the US, college & university are pretty much the same thing - institutions for higher education where you obtain a degree. Colleges simply tend to be small & specific (ie. I went to a design college), whereas Universities have a broader range of studies offered.

    I suppose many of the (job recruitment?) sites you're looking at are for the UK though, but I just thought I'd point that out.
    krentz thanked this post.

    They are indeed, but thanks for pointing out that discrepancy. I suppose it makes sense, considering that high school education in the States lasts until the age of 18 - whereas here, you are no longer legally required to go to school after the age of 16. After that, you have the option of going to college or doing an equivalent qualification for two years, which are what Universities generally use as entry requirements for degree courses. (That said, I think a lot of colleges are starting to offer foundation or partial degrees now, too.)
