I have always been glad that I completed my Bachelor's in Spanish, but when I graduated I was $40,000 in debt, without any idea how to better earn money than when I started. I researched Speech and Hearing a great deal before starting and I love my job, but that program does not lead directly to a job unless you have grades adequate to get into grad school.

I didn't, so I spent a while finding someone to train me, and now I keep trying to find and keep clients. A Master's would open up a world of opportunity, but there is a long road to get there, and I cannot help but wonder what if I just found some office job in 2000 and slowly worked my way up.

College is great and wonderful, as long as it is a tool, and not a commitment someone else made.
