Hi all! I am looking into options for graduate school. I want to hear what your experiences are- did you go right after your bachelor's or later? Did you get it online or attend the university? Did you complete it as a full time or part time student? Did you get it in something related to your field or completely different? Lastly- was anyone able to get scholarships? Grad school is so expensive! Any shared experiences are greatly appreciated. I always thought I would go straight through 5 or 6 years of schooling and get my Bachelors and Masters at once, but I didn't. I couldn't rationalize paying what I would be paying for the degree and was too chicken to explore fields that really interested me but didn't guarantee jobs and would require going farther away to school. So, I've worked the past 4 years since graduating and realized that I need to step it up if I want to achieve this personal and professional goal. The cost scares me and the unknown, but I'm more scared of just staying at my status-quo position for the next 30+ years. I'm 26 now, married a year ago, and not planning to have children for a while. The time is now!
