What is with all the talk of a Ph.D. being a "post graduate degree", I'm guessing everyone who says that has never been to graduate school.

Ask any graduate student or graduate school and you will be told that a Ph.D. is a graduate degree. A law degree or medical degree could be termed a graduate degree but the more technical term is that they are professional degrees (they generally get a lot less respect in the academic world than a research based Ph.D.).

If you want to differentiate between a Ph.D. and a masters degree you could talk about "terminal degrees" which refers to the highest degree in a field. However, at times that is a doctorate and at times it is a masters. In law, the basic professional degree (the JD) is termed a doctorate, and the higher level degree, the terminal degree in the field, is a masters (L.L.M.).

If you want to use the terms correctly, post-graduate study would be a post-doctoral fellowship (a low paid research position usually) for a Ph.D., a fellowship or clerking for a lawyer, or the internships and residency (and sometimes a research fellowship) for a medical doctor.

Anyway, with that done, my education: Bachelors in psychology, an additional 24 credits in education for my teaching certification, currently studying for a masters in reading and literacy, after my masters I'll take a post-masters certificate in reading or administration (maybe an additional masters degree at Johns Hopkins), and I may go on for a Ph.D. or Ed.D. (Doctor of Education) in special education or educational psychology.

Went to SLU, BS in Finance (minor in economics). Currently working towards my CFP designation, should be done with my boards in November. Hopefully afterwards I can get my work to pay for either an MBA or a Phd in finance.
