>1. Degrees we would have gotten had we known we were going to get into TW

But I *did* know I was going to be a technical writer!

I would get the degrees I have:
* two-year degree in computer programming
* four-year degree including coursework in writing and training
which made a Bachelors of Science in Data Processing Training Systems
but I would go to a university that had more tech. writing and writing
courses
available so I could concentrate on writing rather than training --
because I am happier as a writer, rather than as a trainer,
not that training isn't a good addition to my skills.

>2. Degrees we thought would have helped us in our TW careers

I agree with whomever thought a computer science degree would
help a tech writer "stay employed"...

>3. Degrees we would have liked to get concurrent with a TW degree.

Concurrent with my Tech Writing degree... Probably Technical
Management....

But I thought the question was more like "degrees we let
get away" like do you secretly want an Anthropology degree?
My lost dream was Literature... If I could go back and take anything
just for fun it was probably be English Lit...
