Should I Go Back to School ? - Part II

I am officially a student again. I applied and got accepted into a graduate program here in DC and will soon start classes. I did not want to post about this until it was a done deal. In this previous post, I weighed some of the positive and negative points of going back to school for a graduate degree. Although I will be financing my degree with student loans, in the long run, more education will increase my earning potential and expand my skills and I expect to also gain new ones. As I have mentioned previously, I am a nerd and enjoy learning so while I expect juggling a full-time job and classes to be challenging, I believe I can do it. I plan to do updates on my progress on my classes and how going back to school will impact my finances.

Congrats! I just started taking graduate classes this summer while working full time - its a challenge, but it feels awesome to be in school again! I'll be applying to programs come January! Good luck!
