Masters degree in Speech Language Pathology. Yes I have debt but it is 100% worth it because I have a great job with great benefits. I needed a masters degree to practice in my profession so I was perfectly aware of what I was getting into. It’s an awesome field to be in with a LOT of different opportunities/different places you can work 🙂

FutureMrsHodgy:  Ok I think Maryland should be a good state for pharmacy, and especially since he wants to work at the hospital, he should find a job easily afterwards 🙂

Well, I had planned on getting at least a BA in early childhood education. But, here’s what happened.

After I graduated from high school I attended the local community college for El ed for a year. I transfered to A Christian school that my dad works at for Music in Vocal performance. After a semester I transfered back to the first college and found out they had Early Childhood Ed, which is what I wanted to do in the first place, but they didn’t have it at the time I first started attending the school. And the Christian school i went to had Early Childhood, but they weren’t accredited yet, so I wouldn’t have been able to work in any public schools. I think I finished about 3 years and I quit. Why did I quit? Well, since the program was so new, they were revising it practically every year. And whenever they would revise it, my graduation date would get pushed back another semester. The last straw for me was when they put a psychology minor requirement on the ECE program. That pushed me back a WHOLE YEAR! So, I just cut my losses because at the rate they were making changes, I would have never graduated. 

 

Now I’m looking into going to Cosmetology school. It’s been a recent dream of mine to have an at home salon. I probably won’t do anything about it for awhile though. We don’t have the funds.

 

And I will be perfectly content staying home with our kids once we start having them. I haven’t really had a hard time finding jobs. I had worked at a daycare for two years and now I have an office job where I get payed $11/hr.

I have a masters – without it I wouldn’t have the job I do nor would I be making the kind of money I earn at this particular job. It also helps that I love what I do.

Mrs.Sawyertobe:  this exactly! I’m in-house counsel for a company I was lucky enough to get into when I was a freshman in undergrad so i’m doing pretty well thankfully. But had i not made that one smart (albeit random) decision, i would be screwed now!

PhD in chemistry and a JD. I’m doing patent law. Love it. For me, it’s much better than working in a lab for a career.

I’m finishing up my BA degree in Philosophy this year. Hustling to get all my course work done this month because we’re expecting a baby at the end of November. I’ll take some time off school to take care of the babe, and then when my partner is finished his degree in Journalism, I’ll be applying to Law school and if all goes to plan, he’ll be able to take over in primary taking care of little one. Fiance and I are both 28.

Thank you to everyone being honest about their education accomplishments. I notice sometimes people lie and say they went to college or they are a nurse or only a gna, cna or lpn, the same with teaching will say they are a teacher and only a teacher assistant.  i was one of three girls growing up and my parents never believed women should go into the military. my mom a teacher too said that if you were going to be a gna or cna you might as well be a nurse because you would essentially do the same job but get less pay. my parents frowned on cosmetology school or culinary arts school and did not feel they were real degrees, but only certificates. we were not only able to go to college, but our parents paid for us to live on campus, lived out of state and went to colleges or universities of our choice. I hope i am able to do the same for my children when that time comes.

craigslistgirl:  I think on most post like these those with only a high school diploma or certificate of some sort would feel intimidated on posting.

I am currently working on my BS.
