I would like to thank everyone for their speedy and informative responses!
It's going to take some time for me to reply to everyone, but I will!!!

I hadn't mentioned school to anyone and recently courted that option after
finding that every position, for which I applied, required a 4-yr. degree
(as did the position I'm holding now)! I do believe that I only lucked into
my current position based on self-taught skills and my ability to learn
whatever it took to get the job done. It's difficult to convince a
prospective employer of that very important skill when they screen
applicants based on education. (And they do!)

Thank you, everyone, who replied to my original post. I will be in touch!
