Grad School: Tough Decision!

Great news everyone! I'm finally ready to take the next step in my life and attend graduate school! I applied in November. I've gotten my acceptances and I've narrowed down my choices to 2 schools....
I have a tough decision to make moving forward. I've tried the good old "pros and cons" list and I still can't seem to make up my mind. I know that the final decision MUST be my own and I have to do what is best for ME, but I figure I'd let others weigh in just in case someone thinks of something I haven't yet considered.

Here are some things weighing on my mind about the decision...

Georgia State
- I love the faculty & opportunities available
- 5 year PhD program (PhD in Developmental Psychology)
- Fully paid (tuition remission plus stipend)
- Don't have to relocate

- 1 year Masters program (Ed.M; human development & psychology emphasis)
- Not fully funded (I'd HAVE to take to loans...a large amount)
- great networking and job opportunity following
- duh, it's Harvard

Can you see my dilemma? 

So...what do you think?

Pin It!


  1. harvard!!!! even if you have to pay!!!!!

  2. Harvard is definately prestigious but GSU isnt bad either...the question is what means more to you? the havard name that opens doors or the peace of mind that comes without financial stress? tough choice...good luck
