If I am following your thinking correctly, you concur that a Master’s degree for Clerical or Admin Assistant position is excessive. I perceive the conflict is between general eduational requirements at each GS level (I concur that a Bachelors is expected at a GS5 at http://www.opm.gov/qualifications/policy/ApplicationOfStds-04.asp) versus general standards for the occupational series (Miscellaneous Clerk and Assistant Series, 303 at http://www.opm.gov/qualifications/Standards/IORs/gs0300/0303.htm).
