Is it worth it to get a master's in Computer Science career-wise?

I'm a college junior considering applying for a BS/MS program in computer science where I can get into grad school without taking the GRE. However, I'm a little conflicted on whether or not getting an MS is worth it in the first place. My primary motivation was monetary/career security and I'm not particularly passionate about a specific field (like cybersecurity, AI etc) of Computer Science to the point where I want to spend more years in school studying it. From a monetary perspective, does the salary boost outweigh the opportunity cost of going straight into industry and how much does not having an MS limit my career opportunities? #college #computer-science #graduate-degree
