It seems that a lot of my friends are either interested in pursuing graduate degrees or are currently finishing up on theirs. Going to grad school can be a good choice if you're going for the right reasons. Although the upside — getting the job of your dreams, higher pay, networking with future industry leaders, and amazing learning experience — can be great, the risks are plentiful. For example, your degree doesn't guarantee you a job and may even hinder you in life given the enormous student debt and forgoing the income you were making when you weren't in school. So tell me, are you considering furthering your education?
