“Why should I go to grad school?”
“I just finished my college career, I’m ready to begin my professional path in life, so why should I go to grad school if I’m not studying to become a doctor or a lawyer?”
This is a paraphrasing of the general consensus of college grads these days. But when further investigating the benefits of college after college, it’s clearly a viable choice for anyone looking to really expand the career prospects available to them.
