I have a Master’s degree. It was worth it to me because my earning potentially increased as a result. I also love furthering my education and continuous improvement.

I’m studying my bachelor currently. I want to work on conservation and ecology. I would love to do a master’s but I think I’ll work for a while then go back to it. I haven’t been too successful in my studying over the course of my bachelor and think I really want to see the results and work in my field before I continue.

I have never enjoyed school but it’s necessary in my area to get paid well. It took me 6 years to get an associates degree. Once I finished it I knew I had what it takes to get a bachelors degree. I’ll finish my bachelor degree May 2015 and I don’t plan on using it outside of having the box checked on my resume. A degree in criminology and hopefully working for the government (contracts or logistics) near my home so I can stop my ridiculous commute.

I’m in the middle of my master’s program. It’s required for certification in my field (speech-pathology) so I knew I had to go. I’ve contemplated getting my PhD, maybe be a professor, but I don’t think I’d like all the research.

I have a bachelor’s of science degree in Pschology. I think back and wish I would have gone for my Master’s right out of college to further my career in that field, but kept working at the place I was working on college and advanced that way.

If I didn’t want to have loans, I’d go back and focus on either child development (was a minor) and working with special needs kids.

I have a J.D.  I work as a lawyer, so I definitely use it.  I would not recommend anyone go to law school now.  There are too many law schools, flooding the market with too many lawyers and entry level jobs are scarce and low paying.

I’m currently getting my Masters in Speech Language Pathology. It should be worth it because it’s required to be licensed and will increase my earning potential. I want to work for the school system, preferably middle or high school.

MS in Psych, JD in law.  Technically, I don’t use either degree diectly, but due to the nature of my work I draw on both.

I have completed undergrad (bachelor degree) and am now doing postgrad (Graduate Diploma/Masters). I have been at university on and off (took first semester off last year and first semester the year before) for almost 7 years, I can’t wait to be done!

I have a masters (graduated three years ago). In terms of long term earning potential I’m still hoping it ends up being worth the cost, but in terms of hoping to get a higher salary immediately after graduation it definitely didn’t make a huge difference (not that I expected it to — almost all studies say it makes a huge difference on long term earning but a pretty negligible difference early on).
