I agree that the experience will get you the job. A good portfolio speaks

On the other hand, I've seen many job postings that request a fair amount
of experience (say, 8 - 10 years or more) and want a degree, too. Why? If
the degree dates back that many years, why is it important or relevant? Is
it simply a knee-jerk thing?

[rest of nancy's post deleted. For the most part, I agree with her
recommendations for folks who are still in school.]
