Wow a master's degree! How long did it take? are you going for your PhD? share us your experiences.

masters in political science? uh oh
do you plan on becoming a lawyer? if not you're stuck in a giant debt hole
and most lawyers don't make much money these days as well

Congratulations all of you who are graduating this year. ^_^ I've still got a few years left myself. But at least I have found something I am totally passionate about. =)

I walked in the commencement and will officially graduate before the year's over. There' nothing like pursuing art in these economic times biggthumpup.gif I'll be getting my BFA in Drawing & Painting and then I'm off to get my MFA and eventually teach at the college level (I feel rather confident about my plans).

What's the difference between a pizza and an art major?

A pizza can feed a family of 4.
mndeg
how much money will it cost for education expenses alone meaning books and tuition to get that far? 100k?

Think of this time as a time for opportunities to be more innovative, more creative! And while you're unemployed, use this time to give back to the community through volunteer work. While there is no pay, you'll learn skills, make connections (super important!), and may even discover your life's passion! Think positively. . . yes, yes, I know, loans, bills, etc. . . but if you don't have a job, you don't have a job! Do something useful with your free time!

Yeah it is tough but at least you'll be doing what you love.
