They gave me a hood. A wizard hood! But even as they gave me a hood and we all celebrated our accomplishment I couldn't shake this feeling that they sold us a future that isn't real. What if I'm poo poo? WHAT IF I'M SHIIIIIIIIT?!

Infinitely many points, but zero length.

Everyone with a level of introspection and education will develop imposter syndrome to some degree OP. Everyone feels like they're secretly a failure. You just have to remind yourself that you studied for a reason, you graduated for a reason, and you've just gotta fake it until you make it.

Not true, you're both actually failures and everyone knows it.

it was actually insanely useful for civil engineering. most entry level ce jobs want a masters now. cant get a job without experience which you can't have without a job, so ms's are very helpful theer. plus it's always free from any place worth a drat so sure why not

Why are y'all so dour? Everyone I've ever known who went to grad school is always very unhappy. I thought it was supposed to be fun. You are learning about what you want to learn about, right?

please forgive me, i'm extremely cynical about the job market coming from a position of almost 6 years without a career-type job. i just got a certification in medical coding where there are apparently zero entry level positions so

There are a few niche industries (not counting academia) where graduate degree is pretty necessary. Outside of those it's about if you have the experience and you know your poo poo. That's what i've seen anyhow.

I dunno, I only got my job because I have a master's. I didn't end up in the field I wanted, but I make more money than I ever thought I would.
Student loans do suck though.

I don't know why everyone goes so crazy doing it. I know it's annoying, but I thought that was the point. Like, you weathered the horrible storms of being a TA and no one understanding your passion for whatever except for like three people. And then you get an education! Sounds exhilarating.

I went to a well accredited yet still local state school and ended up getting a BA and an MA for the cost that a lot of other people I know ended up getting strictly a BA for so it's not so bad.
