What should I do Is law school really worth it for my future? ?

Hi everyone! I hope all is well with you. My name is Kailynn, and I am currently an undergraduate student interested in attending graduate school. However, I am deeply debating whether I should attend law school (a dual degree program to also complete my master's) or just pursue a master's degree. I am interested in programs such as Public Health, Business/Public Administration, and Environmental Management. My goal is to work in global or corporate sustainability, and eventually, I want to open my own firm. :) I love law and have always been interested in it. However, in terms of practicing and having to take the bar, that's something I don't really want to do. I know the experience can be very favorable, but I also have real test anxiety with taking the LSAT. Any advice and guidance would be greatly appreciated!

What science/biology jobs can I get with a BA in early education? Should I go to grad school?

I graduated with a PreK-4 Education degree last year. I've been substitute teaching, but it hasn't been very fulfilling and my mental health is suffering because of it. I'm wondering if I should go back to school and get a new BA or a masters in something I'm more passionate about. I really like science/biology/sustainability and history so I would love to study that, but still work with kids somehow. I would really appreciate ideas on potential career routes/ masters degrees that I could pursue! I like working with kids, teaching, and grading papers, but the realities of being a teacher (poor working conditions, low pay, stress) is already catching up to me. I like "customer service" type jobs where I can work with people, but I want to engage my brain a little more.

What would you suggest as a good career path to someone who enjoys learning and helping others understand concepts (e.g. disease process)?

Currently an RN (passed boards Nov 2023 and got registered on Jan 2024) working in a non-bedside role (CPO - Clinical Process Outsourcing) with no actual clinical experience. I am considering taking up Masters of Arts in Nursing if I find an affordable opportunity because I feel like I want to study more but I'm not sure if it's for me and I don't really know where that can take me in my career. I am interested in MAN non-thesis because I like being able to learn new things and question as to why things are in a certain way. I get a sense of fulfillment and satisfaction from learning and being able to understand things in depth. I also did consider like research nursing or being and educator, but I feel like I might need bedside experience for those... I don't think I'm strong enough to be at the bedside (life-death is in your hands), I enjoy more of the knowledge side of things. A part of me also really wants to travel so if ever an opportunity arises that I can either afford through a scholarship to study masters abroad, I would love that especially since I grew up outside of the PH in the first place and I long for diversity so much. I was wondering if you had any suggestions on what paths I can take with this in mind.

Would it be smarter to pursue two master's?

How do I break into the consulting world?

I am a 23 year old from the United States finishing my Masters degree in International Business Management in France at Grenoble Ecole de Management. Although I am in a Masters program, it is still very difficult to break into the consulting world. I tried searching for mentorship programs at some of the top consulting firms, but from what I have seen, they are only offering these programs to people with diverse backgrounds, which I do not have. Any tips for improving my resume or any free online courses that you may know of would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!

Looking for science related career path?

I am really unsure what I want to do.. No Med school, no patient care, no teaching. I really enjoy science itself but sitting and doing research my whole life just sounds boring. If anyone can help with a lucrative career path that has to do with science. I really liked immunology, etc in college. Also would like to hear thoughts about Masters Programs if I’m unsure what my career path will be . Thanks!

In Australia, how big is the difference between the *content* of a Bachelor's Degree with Honours and an equivalent Master's Degree?

I understand that Bachelor + Honours degrees typically take 4 years, while Master’s degrees take about 2. But is there a difference in the *content* of these degrees? I'm specifically interested in La Trobe University, but advice about other universities are welcome as well! For reference, these undergraduate vs these postgraduate degrees from La Trobe (which are all health degrees, as upon exiting any of these, you can register with the relevant board and be a practitioner): - Bachelor of Occupational Therapy (Honours) VS Master of Occupational Therapy Practice - Bachelor of Physiotherapy (Honours) VS Master of Physiotherapy Practice - Bachelor of Social Work (Honours) VS Master of Social Work - Bachelor of Speech Pathology (Honours) VS Master of Speech Pathology There may be better examples from other Australian Universities!

I would like to go D2 or D3 in volleyball. 1/3 of the graduating class at my school graduates with their AA degree. This is something that I am planning on doing. Though I don't want to get into the real world at the ripe age of 20, so I am planning on getting my masters after completing my major.

I am an undergraduate student in my second year I didn't do so well last semester and my gpa dropped to a 2.1, can you give me some advice as to how to prepare for grad school? Is it too late for me?

How do I prepare myself for a PhD at MIT, or other Ivy league or top schools in the world's? Should I also get my masters before my PhD program and will that shorten or extend how long my doctorate program will be? I am also planning to get a master before the PhD though since it isn't that close I still wanted to hear an opinion from an expert. I am currently a computer science student at Florida polytechnic university if that helps as well. FYI: I plan to do better this upcoming semester and hopefully raise my GPA close to a 3.0 by the end of either the fall or spring. And I plan to start getting some research opportunities with professors.
