I have a masters of science in speech-language pathology. I love my job and wouldn’t be able to be a speech therapist without the M.S. degree. My undergraduate degree was in elementary education. I have loans but was a teaching assistant for one year of my 2 year program, so I received free tuition plus a stipend that year.

I think with all of the people listing their PhDs or Masters, people with less education are definitely intimidated.
I am proud of my Dietetic Technician Diploma and membership in the Canadian Society of Nutrition Management. I always hated school, started out at University for Kinesiology/Teachers College, hated it, found my calling in Nutrition.
While I don’t have my dream job, my perspective is that my current experience is just part of my journey.

Newsflash: AN LPN IS a nurse. What a bitchy comment to make.

Between my fiance and I we have a wall full of degrees! I have my MBA, two bachelors’ degrees (dual-degree in Finance and Spanish), and a Certificate in International Business. My fiance has his MBA as well as a bachelor’s and is in another part-time grad program at Stanford at the moment.
I totally think the MBA is worth it, but only if you go to a Top 10 school. I knooowww, that sounds so pretentious, but the opportunities afforded by a better program are totally worth the cost. You want to make sure you go somewhere where the best companies are recruiting, otherwise I think it just makes sense to stay in the workforce and save your $200K. I basically doubled my salary, got my firm to pay for my degree, and opened up a world of opportunities during my time in an MBA program. Worth every cent.

I have a bachelors in a business related field and do not need to get a masters to increase my earning potential. Instead, I would need to get certifications to move up in my career. My current job relies more on experience, I think, than degrees. I wouldn’t waste my money on a MBA even if it’s from an ivy league school (my company has hired a few and they earned just the same as everyone else).
I have thought of going back to school but only to change my career from business to science.

I have just finished the last of my exams for my Bachelors degree in Psychology. THANK F**K THAT IS OVER WITH!!!!!!!!!!
Have applied to do Honours next year. After that I will work for a few years, then I need to do my Masters in Clinical Psychology. So, I still have another 3 years to go at university *sigh*

I have a masters of social work. I am not a social worker but I definitely use my degree. I did it in three years rather than two, so have less debt than some (but more than others, because I went to a very expensive school). My advice is for you to know what you plan to do with the degree before you take the plunge.

I have a Masters in psychology but am currently working full time in a field that isn’t really related. However, I do work part time for one of my professors from grad school so having the masters has allowed me to continue working for him and is also giving me experience for when I do get a job in my field.
