Unmotivated students. Unsure graduates. Us.
This seems like a nice little community. I am soon to be finishing up my BS in Therapeutic Recreation, and I have no clue what I want to do after I done. Some of my professors are pushing me towards grad school(and have even told me I should get a PhD), but my main interest is providing community recreation programs for people with disabilities. Does anyone actually get a Masters in Recreation? I mean really?! Research sounds quite interesting, and being able to talor a program to exactly fit my interests has always been a dream. I just cant figure out if I would be able to gain anything other than a pile of debt and an extra degree that wont get me any further than I could have gotten on my own without it.|
The concept of being an academic nerd sounds appealing, but does it really do me any good?
