Would you go "Back to School"

I was in my mid-thirties and found myself at a cross roads in life (I had been in the medical field for years!) BUT I was tired of "caring" for everyone in my life and really thought about a change! SO I did it! I still had two younger kids at home but I took the chance - and went BACK TO SCHOOL!

I got my degree in Criminal Justice with a concentration in Computer Crime and Financial Fraud - (was even on the Dean's List) ohhhhh lol - definitely did better this time around and even figured out a little alegbra along the way.

So... given the chance would you go Back to School and make that change?graduate

  • I might. I got my first degree when my kids were little. I actually graduated prgnant with my 3rd child. It was hard although I did great and loved it. Now my children are 13, 11 and 9 and I almost think it was easier when they were younger. My problem is that I don't know what i would go to school for.

    I think it is awesome that you did this and I am happy that it worked out for you.

    Good Luck!

  • I already went back to school, but it wasn't for a career change. I got my master's in the same field I already work in.
