Grad school?

Graduate school forces you to overinvest: It’s too high risk.

This was an interesting article to read as I occaisionally entertain the thought…

  1. Very interesting article. I’m only 50% sold on her arguments. I completed grad school and have a good deal of debt to show for it (unfortunate). In addition, I choose not to go into the specific field I studied for (also unfortunate). However, I came out of the experience with more knowledge, confidence and maturity (very fortunate). Do the gains outweigh the debt…not sure.
