To Ph.D or not to Ph.D, that is the question!

Since I am fully convinced that nobody reads this, I will not be hurt if I get no comments on this but I hope that I do. I am currently working on a Masters Degree in Business Administration. Those who know me best know that I don't like school and graduating in May is the best thing that will have happened to me since graduating two years ago with my Bachelors.

That said, for some ilogical reason, I am considering going back to school in the Fall of 2006 to get a Ph.D in either Strategy or Corporate Finance. I will be taking the GMAT again in 2.5 weeks to improve my score. If I do, I will go the next step which is apply to several schools and basically, I have a year to make my final decision.

So what I will like for anyone who sees this blog or stumbles upon is that you leave a comment on whether to go ahead with more school and if so where. I will really appreciate it.

I don't like school much; so this might be a little bias. Depending on how much longer you would have to go to school; it might be worth it.I think that if going back to school would get you a better job and more job opportunities, then go for it. That is about all I have to say...

Well, if you are going through the trouble of taking GMAT again, it must be something you have carefully considered and I think you should go for it. I think it helps too that you seem to love the program you plan on going in for. Far more than just better job prospects, I believe it would radically change the way you see yourself and your world. So why not? Your life has only begun…Goodluck!

i;m currently finishing off my PhD thesis in the field of engineering and virology. I guess the key whether to do PhD or not comes down to your interest...i started my PhD not because for better career or earning in future but simply because i love discovering and researching.. and that makes the 3.5 years of my live an enjoyable and fufilling one!! God bless..
