Education: none, vocational, public, private, elite, doctorate
Add a profile field for education, and let users filter by it.

How about you just find out that information by having "a conversation" with someone? If you're someone who cares about another persons level of education I'd assume your own is to a standard where talking to someone isn't that difficult 🙄
Education is great...showes me how much I still don't know about people
I already get enough shit with my body and stuff dont need people tell me how dumb i am
This is a hookup app. Not a place for golddiggers.

All of a sudden the entire community has PhDs ... Grindr ain’t exactly Christians Mingle
Please don't do this. You're just stretching the already brutal cultural and socio-economic divides. Especially in the big cities where users have to face daily discriminatory attacks on their person. This will just add firepower.

This isn't a dating site.
You are going to link your professional profile to a hook-up app?? You are all over thinking this🤣🤣
I could see this ending badly in soo many ways. Depending on your profession. Always keep business and pleasure separate.

It's just elitism for the sake of elitism.
Hardly a priority for grindr

Uhhh..not exactly in keeping with Grindr here.
In response to the last comment, the quality of education received (as written in OP’s suggestion) is more significant than the type of degree earned. Associate’s degrees are becoming obsolete, bachelor’s degrees vary widely in rigor and prestige, and some master’s degrees are handed out by public schools after just one year of online study. The way OP has the levels listed is more potent and reliable.
•None = no higher education beyond high school
•Vocational = trade school, hair school, classroom training for healthcare jobs that require licensing rather than a four-year degree, etc.
•Public = a degree from any public institution, including UCLA, UCB, UVA, GT, UNC, UF, UT, etc.
•Private = a degree from any private institution, like USC, Georgetown, Tufts, BU, Tulane, SMU, Fordham, etc.
•Elite = a degree from any elite private (highly selective) institution, like Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Stanford, Duke, Vanderbilt, Rice, Swarthmore, Emory, Hamilton, etc.
•Doctorate: a doctoral degree (PhD, MD, JD, DDS, PharmD, etc.) from any institution, public or private.
*Those with two or more degrees (bachelor's and a master's, etc.) can pick the option that best suits them.
How about level of education; no one cares that you got an elite education through high school and then did nothing after. Also, a public school like UCLA is arguably more “elite” even though it’s a public school than name your random local private university. Know what I mean? I get where you’re coming from, but I think the actual result you’d like would be achieved by stating level of educational attainment.
Examples: High School, Associates, Bachelors, Masters, Professional/Doctorate
....and conversely make Linkedin have a field for **** size and ****** position!?!
