Graduate School?!

Lemire (skim Ch 2-7) -- Jerz: EL150 (Intro to Literary Study)

"What's the best time to attend graduate school?"
Chapter 3

As we approach the end of our freshman year (YIKES!), I find myself frequently thinking about graduate school. I know that I will eventually have to go, focus, and get my master's. But no one has ever said when I should go. A lot of teachers I know go to night school in their first few years of teaching, and that is all well and good to me, but it seems like a huge workload. Some of my friends at Pitt are going to attend their graduate program directly after getting their Bachelor's. This is also another option, but...that would mean that I would go from 4 years at Seton Hill, and another 2 at Pitt. I hate to say it, but that's a lot of learning packed into a huge time frame. 6 years. Jeez. Someone tell me what to do?!

I went right from my BA to my MA, and I finished my MA program in three semesters. I worked full-time from January until August, and then I went back to school for my PH.D.

You've got plenty of time to figure that out.
