Question of the day - May 1st! :)

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Happy May Day everyone!

If you could get an advanced degree at any school of your choice, for FREE - would you? What would you get your degree in? Would you want to go back to school?

I used to dream of getting a music degree from NYU. I wanted to be in music theater. I would still love to do that, but being more sensible now, I think I'd get some sort of business degree from an Ivy League like Harvard or Yale.

Philosophy hands down.

I would get my advanced degree in clarinet performance because I would love to be able to play that well. I'm not sure about the school because I'm not really that knowledgable (sp?) on the big music schools. I'm practically a sophomore in my Bacherlor of Music in Music Education (emphasis on instrumental teaching), so I really have a long way to go!

Flute performance! Who cares where. Local would be just fine thanks. Unfortunately, I get severe pain in my hands and wrists when I play

I would, and I think I would try for Criminal Justice, it's something that has always interested me.

I would definately get my MSN if it didn't cost me anything! I don't care about what school, but I would like to get my Master's eventually anyway.

I have absolutely no clue. I really feel if I was passionate about what I wanted as a career I would pursue it free or not. So I wouldn't either.

I would get my MSW (masters in social work) which is what I'm working on right now. Sadly though I'm only a jr. in my BA program. I've got a ways to go, but if it was free! I would retake some classes that I got Cs in!!

Doesn't matter where but I would like to have a degree in Education.

I would go in to family law. Work mostly as an adoption lawyer, since I wnt to help people find their families... I was adopted and i also gave a baby up for adoption,big part of my life.

I would get my MSN right here in my backyard, at Johns Hopkins. I want to be a family NP....eventually. My boyfriend is graduating from Johns Hopkins this month with a Master's in Public Health.....so we have to deal with his school debt for a little bit before I go back.

I would love to get my degree in interior decorating and design. And maybe a minor if Fashion.

I'm working on the decorating degree, but I have had to drop out because of cost.... *sigh*
Hopefully I can go back ASAP!

I'm actually in the process of researching schools to get my Master's. I'm thinking of getting it in either Human Resources Management or Health Care Management. I already have a bachelor's in Business Management, but with those Master's programs, I don't know what jobs would be available for them.

I am! I'm getting an advanced degree in geophysics for a charge of negative dollars. (I'm actually paid for the research I'll be using for my thesis.)

I would go back and get a masters in English with an emphasis on creative writing and perhaps get the courage to write the books that are in my head.

Or something else creative, like Theatrical Performance, Voice, etc.

I don't know where I would go.

In reality, I am looking at going back to school to learn web design, possibly in the fall, to make myself more marketable as a writer/ professional communicator.

I would like one in culinary or weather.
My Sister has one in Criminal Justice but she hasnt found a Job.

Absolutely!!! Even at the ripe old age of (nearly) 49! I'd go back and be a Physician's Assistant. Central Michigan University has a very good PA program, and it's not very far away! I really wish I'd done it 15 years ago...

I have an MBA from Michigan. I would like to go back to get a Ph.D from a good business school and be a professor of business. I am not sure that the U of M would take me because I have an MBA from there but I would love to be there. After Ben goes to college, though.

Well, Rosemary, if you ever decide to make that move, look me up!!!

I have my B.S. in Mathematics from Penn State. I started out with an Associates in Architectural Engineering and Design, and my last job reimbursed tuition for employees who wanted to further their education, but it had to be in a related field. So I choose General Mathematics so I could apply it towards being a teacher some day. They never paid for books though... and I know a lot of you know that'll burn a whole in your pocket sans the tuition!

If I could go back and do it over.... I dont know what I would choose. When I was younger I always wanted to be a veterinarian, until I took biology in junior high! But I wish I would've stuck with it or had someone to push me harder, blood and guts dont bother me in the least anymore.

I wouldnt mind being a Pediatric Oncologist, or a Marine Biologist even... I've even thought I would love to be a neonatal nurse.

Oh to know then what we know now!

There's absolutely no way! I'm finishing up my PhD now and I have to say that it is torture! I would never go back and do it again!

That said, I do think it is worth doing once.

lol i always wanted to go to the Test pilot school.
post #27 of 28
i don't think i could ever go back to studying to be fair. as i can't work anyway, i think it's pretty pointless.

i dream more than anything, to be a singer!

That was my problem with my degree in Architectural Design. Not much in this area. I moved our family twice for job options, but moved back twice after being homesick.

My daughter's boyfriend starts college this year and is studying computer security. I'm already worried there isnt much of a need for it here in Erie and am afraid of him having to uproot.
