I’m wondering how other people on The Billfold have decided that going into debt for graduate…

It me!

I’m currently in an MLIS program- chose one that had 1. the cheapest tuition (that was still in person program) and also has 2. paid internships as part of it.

We chose this path for many reasons: to get out of the situation we were in; to be a librarian one must have a Masters; the cheap cheap tuition makes things way easier; and we are not planning on having children, so our future earnings only have to cover us.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
