Was it a wise choice, financially? Did it lead to a job, or provide you with skills that enabled you to land a job, etc.? Or did you just do it to avoid the 'real world' and out of interest?
For those who are feeling particularly bold: Where'd you go, how much did it cost, and how long did it take?
I'm on the fence on the issue, and almost everything I search seems to have conflicting reports. Yes, a lot of people benefit from advanced degrees, but a lot don't. It's an expensive risk. But in terms of liberal arts, as they say, the MA is the new BA. In terms of the sciences, I don't really know.
