Oh me too. I've been out of school for two years now, so it's not like I would have to approach them after class or something. But even the thought of sending an email or calling them up freaks me out. It doesn't help that I don't really expect any of them to remember me.I've been thinking about it. I'm so afraid to ask my professors for references, though.
I'm always thinking about or planning to go back to school, but I never can get straight exactly what for.Anyone else thinking about or planning to go back to school?
Very cool. I initially got into Anthropology more interested in the cultural side, but I ended up REALLY enjoying biological anthropology.I'm graduating with my BA in Anthropology this December and applying for grad school for fall 2010. I am terrified! I don't want to ask my professors for references either... although one has already offered... but I need two more. I have the fear of being rejected :/ I want to do something with Biological Anthropology... probably primate related.
I considered obtaining a Master of Library Science degree, after getting my B. A. I gave it a lot of thought and decided not to pursue it.I'll be starting my first semester of grad school in a few weeks for library science - I don't think the program is going to be too difficult, but I've been out of school for about a year and the idea of having to interact with classmates and professors again is really daunting. I don't really have any idea what to expect and I already feel pretty intimidated.
I've heard opinions along those lines, but I consider it a somewhat pessimistic view of the field. There are still many good opportunities. I suppose it helps not to be in it for the money.I considered obtaining a Master of Library Science degree, after getting my B. A. I gave it a lot of thought and decided not to pursue it.
For the advanced level of education, the salaries are extremely low. And in addition, library jobs are very vunerable to budget cuts. Very vunerable. In my area, some libraries are now open only three days a week. For the time being, school librarians are facing a very uncertain future.
At the university level, I think the future is very murky, too.
Do weigh your options. Good luck!
I don't blame you. The interest rates for federal loans are quite high right now (about 7%). 5-6 years ago, they were only about 2%.I would go to grad school, but the thought of taking out more loans make me cringe. If it was free, I would definitely go. If I have to take out more loan, then no.
