Recommended Posts

You do know if you go back for your bachelor's yo uare stil lgoing to have to take those core classes again....right?

 

I also like to read pretty much whatever i can get my hand's on as well.  As a kid whenever i asked my Dad or Mom a question they said wel lgo look it up i n the encyclopedia, so off i went to the world book and encyclopedia brittanica sets we had.

 

Good luck and trust me, any posts on here  that aren't in the resume section i give a ton of slack :)

That's the only drawback. However, no longer being fresh out of highschool with a desire to party and run amuck. I don't think those would be that bad. I only lack 3 or 4 core classes. Plus I could probably clept out of them.

Generally if you don't go to a liberal arts school you don't have as many core classes to take so that might be beneifcial to look for as well.  Not sure how long ago you attended but you still might have some credits that transfer over too....

So let me get his straight....you want to stay being an electrician and go back to get your Doctorate in philosophy with no intent other than to educate yourself and prepare for the what-if scenario?

 

If so, that is pretty cool if you ask me.  Some would argue that it is a waste of time and money but educating your self for the sake of education is the best reason in my mind to do it.  Also i hope you like to read because tha amount of reading I had to do in undergrad minor in philosophy was pretty massive all things considered.

My mother is 74 years old and has been going to school for the last 20 years just to educate herself for the sake of educating herself. I couldn't do it.

I bet you could....it just may be the education you want isn't a school based education :)

This is true. Just think how much I could learn from reading RNF's memoirs. A remedial education is better than no education....right? :laugh5:

I'm looking to go back to school myself.  Anyone here ever swing a full time job and school at the the same time, or do you think I should start off part time?

It's really up to you and if you have the discipline to do both and also how mentally taxing your job is.  I worked full time all through undergrad and am now going full time for my masters while working full time as well.  So the answer is yes, it can be done and many do.  My thought is suffering a lot for about 18 months is way better than a little less suffering for 30.  It is one of those deals where when you are doing it, it kind of sucks but when you finish a class or a semester you think, yeah that wasn't that bad :)

I worked full time and earned my BS at night. We did 3 semesters a year for 6 years.I was in my early 20's when I did it and can't imagine doing that schedule at my current age. I do have to go back every 2 years to keep my builder's license current per our state's laws.

I have a very manageable work schedule, just the idea of full time school is pretty daunting.

Jigfishin10 just curious, did you go to wentworth. I've noticed that you post a lot in the eastern ma thread.

Yeah it is a daunting task but if you want something you gotta just go for it and figure it out as you go sometimes.

I sure did, good guess. I worked as a carpenter during the day for a residential contractor and later for a commercial contractor. If your in a situation where your school work/degree goals meet your company's line of work, most companies will reimburse for most if not all the cost. Some base it on grades some don't, but I got a few of my classes paid by the company.
