I am trying to decide whether or not I should go back to school. I planned to get a BA in Paralegal studies after high school, but my parents would not permit me to go to a 4 year school after they saw how hard it was to put my older brother through a private college. I went to a business school and have and Associates in Paralegal Studies, which is fine. I work as a file clerk in downtown Pittsburgh, and my job is ok, but I sometimes worry that I will never live up to my potential. I have been considering going back to school online and betting my bachelors degree. Now the problem is that I don’t know where to go or what I would go for. I am 100000% positive that I do not want to become a lawyer. I am not sure if I want to stay a paralegal though. I was considering mediation, but I have no clue how to get into that or if it would even be worth it. I figured that if I went back to school, I could either get an actual paralegal job now, or if I decide to take time off to raise a family, the degree might give me the marketability I would need to get back in. I have only been at this job for about a year, so my experience alone wouldn’t be enough. While I don’t plan on having children for a few more years, I would like to pretend that I have some sort of plan in mind. I would just hate to go back and spend all sorts of time and money on a degree that wouldn’t do anything for me. I don’t know what to do anymore.
