There’s a lot of studying going on in my life right now. In addition to my new gig as a contractor for a local government entity, I’m back in school to finish up two degrees after taking a year off, and I’m taking part in three Bible studies right now as well. It’s the end of a long day. I just finished writing a paper that was several pages long, and I loved it. There’s a lot to process, write, read, and create but this is my happy place.
I enjoy learning, so when a recruiter from LSU came to talk to my class about going to graduate school, the wheels started turning. In less than a year I’ll be finished at Tulane. Sure, it took me longer than the average student, but I’m also a no-traditional student who had a variety of other irons in the fire while attending classes. It’s my schedule and my time, and I like to fill it with information and ideas that enrich my life.
I’m not sure if I’m going to pursue it yet or not, but the likelihood is great. I’m going to a meeting at the school in November. At that time I’ll take the tour, and I’ll start looking into the GRE soon too. If I do it, I’ll shoot for Fall of 2018, so while that seems like a long way off, time flies.
I’m not ready to talk about exactly what I want to do yet, but if you attended graduate school I’d love to hear about it.
Did you take the GRE?
Are you glad you did it?
Did you find that the coursework was more interesting/challenging than your undergrad?
What made you decide to go for it?
