Deciding on an Advanced Degree
From Laura Schneider, former About.com Guide

Consider What You Hope to Accomplish
First and foremost, what do you hope to achieve by obtaining an advanced degree?
Is there a particular job you hope to have one day?
In what time frame, realistically, do you see yourself obtaining that role?
Career counselors or life coaches can be a nice asset when you are trying to figure out what to do with your life. Many universities staff these positions in-house, or you may decide to deal with someone else directly.
