I admire the people that continue to go to school after their four years in college.
That takes guts. Because some people, and some of those people are me, liked the fact that they were done after four years and didn't want to continue any more.
It's probably a lot easier to continue school after your four years right then and there because you're already in the school mindset and you haven't had time to escape it just yet. But, if you wait some time, a couple of years to be exact, and then decide, well it might be a little harder than you first thought.
Don't get me wrong; I've been playing around with the idea of going back to school for the longest time. My Bachelor's looks fine, and I really don't necessarily need it considering what I plan on going into.
But no one knows for sure.
Everyone is always saying "Of course a higher degree will help you get a better job." And they're probably not wrong. All signs should point to yes.
But I can't be sure until the degree is actually obtained. There are some people in the jobs that I want that have the same degree as I do. And then, there are some people that do have a Master's in the same job.
So who is to say what is actually right? Who's to say that more experience and a Bachelor's wouldn't get me the same job that a Master's and less experience would?
WHO'S TO SAY? And that's the frustrating part, making that decision. Because only you can make the decision for yourself. Ultimately, it's going to be you that's staying up late nights and forgetting deadlines for papers that you thought you already turned in.
So good luck to you! Good luck to anyone that's debating going back to school and they're just like me and can't make a decision.
We made it through four years, so we should be smart enough to figure this out.
