If you don't have a degree that matches the drop-down list, you will get an error. Is there a way to enter in the correct degree title or do I just leave it blank? I don't think it's right to select whatever is closest - isn't that misleading? I have a Bachelor of General Studies - Thematic Option in TESL*.
