It’s a dog-eat-dog world out there. And, being a young person, sometimes it can be hard to decide what the best option is after college. On one hand, it’d be great to get a job and start making money immediately! On the other… grad school is an option.
I’ve weighed the idea of furthering my education for the past couple of years. I finished my undergrad last year and just recently found a job where I’m going to actually be making money rather than just scrambling to get the bills paid. For now, I’m happy with where I am. Some people, however, are not lucky enough to find a job they are comfortable with immediately. Sometimes people want more, and that’s perfectly ok.
Recently, I was told about this cool, choose-your-own-adventure type infographic over at OnlineColleges.net. It allows you to weigh a variety of options which can help you determine if grad school is good for you. Of course, these situations won’t be exactly tailored to fit every person exactly… but I think it gives a fairly realistic view of the world and whether or not you could benefit from furthering your education.

This infographic begins with your college graduation. From there, you choose a variety of scenarios and in the end you’re given your destiny. This nifty little tool even gives standard figures for private vs. public schools, and makes you think about realistic things like… “How would I pay for this?”
Another thing I like about this is that it doesn’t really push you one way or the other. Grad school works for some people and doesn’t work for others. The key is to deciding what works for you.
