My younger son got his Bachelor's degree from the same university where my wife got her Master's.

I went to the same college that my great-great-grandfather, my great-grandfather, my grandfather, and my father attended.

My great-grandfather went on to teach at the college where he founded the pre-med program and taught my chemistry professor. My father finished his pre-med program there and was admitted to med school without either a high school diploma or a college degree. I don't know if that is possible these days.

My kids went to the same high school that my father and I attended. I had some of his teachers, but I don't think my kids had any of the same teachers that I did.

I've now taught for nearly thirty years in another district, and teach many of the children of my former students. I fondly call them my grandchildren.

No, not hardly, and thank Goodness. My father went to McClymonds High School in Oakland, CA. It's rated 2-3 out of 10, and has been even lower over the years since he went there in the mid 1930s. My mother went to Alhambra High in Martinez, CA in the 1940s. When I was in school we lived in Lafayette CA, a city with very highly rated schools since even before I went there in the 1960s.

I went to the same elementary - high school as my dad (technically it was a new building because the original school house had burned down) but the same school. I was the first in my family to go to college however.

My daughter attended the same college I did, majored in the same degree, and lived in the same dorm. In fact one of my classmates from college was her professor for several classes.

No, my parents grew up in different states than I did, and my son is growing up in a different one from any of those.

I have suggested to him that he might consider the college I attended, I think it could be a fit for him. He's in 11th grade, so starting to do that research, so we'll see.
