On Grad School – Show Me The Money

To this end, I will continue to post resources here, on this blog, under the category of “Preparing for Grad School.” Please check back or subscribe to this blog using RSS (see more about this below) for more info for undergraduate adult learners who are thinking about grad school as a next step.

Here’s a new one that just came my way, a podcast that addresses this topic: “Whether you’re thinking about graduate school–or are already on your way–this podcast helps answer many questions about the financial aid process.” It’s geared to the professional adult student (yeah – you!), so it might be worth a listen.

It WILL get you something — a degree, at the least — and it might get you lots of new opportunities as well that at this point you can’t even imagine. But I also think it’s important to think about ROI as it will be time, money, and a lot of personal and emotional investment. Then again, as the commercial goes, learning in general can be “priceless.” My two cents…
