I know a number of people who are going to graduate school, and I know other people who are thinking about going to graduate school for a variety of reasons. I never went, so I may not be the best person to give advice, and therefore I am not going to.
But I found this wonderful blog titled “100 Reasons NOT to Go to Graduate School” that lays it all out. Anyone considering graduate school should read all the entries in this post before making that crucial decision. The posts are well written, nicely cross-referenced, well commented and illustrated with classic paintings.
I know there are a number of eminent professors, graybeards and professionals bestowed with advanced degrees who occasionally stop in here read my blog – and I invite them to comment and set things straight.
I might also add that I am not sure if I am in favor or against graduate degrees in general. I believe it greatly depends on the dreams, goals and dispositions of the individuals. But it is good to read about “the other side.”
Therefore, read, oh young ones, read, before you make your wise and fateful decisions!
