LB don't worry, I've already been discouraged by others.LOL

I think it's mostly low confidence, because my grades are "middle of the pack" so I feel the only scholarships I get will be need based.

ConRo, what exactly do you want to do with a degree in stats? (asking genuinely cause I have no idea what they do other than professors and researchers---who are often times professors lol)

Are you SURE you wouldn't eventually want to be a professor? For some reason I think you'd be a good teacher. I feel like you actually care... so that would be good, especially in a subject like stats, where the teacher's heart can make a world of difference.. lol believe me

LB, I've never wanted to be a prof. IDK what it is, but there are many many things about Academia that I don't like. It's also incredibly (sp?) hard to get a job unless your amazing. I primarily want to do predictive analytics for a company like IBM or something.

But it seems like you'll be rich, and so my advice (which maybe no one should take financial advice from me?) would be gone head and take out the loans if you need to. You'll pay it back in no time with a job like that


Oh also, colleges/universities can be difficult to get on as a full time professor, but adjunct jobs for side money aren't hard to get... but if you're not into academia, cool. But, just..dont be discouraged by the thought that it's hard to get hired.

The problem is, I don't want to be in school that long, also I'm not planning on going into Academia so I was told a PhD could actually hold me back (not sure how true that is). I can get itno a better schoo if I don't apply to PhD programs.

I hope I can wheasel my way into a research assistanship, or become a TA/grader. Also, I hear private schools give more grants. IDK idk 
From what I hear, a PhD in a field where a masters will do makes some employers think you are 'over qualified' and more likely to leave. Not sure how it works in the hard sciences though.

I hope I get rich. But Im black so you know my employmet rate could be worse than a white person with a criminal record. lol (by smdh at the same time).

Thank you though, you make a good point about a PhD. I probably will have to take out loans if I get a masters (realistically), I just hope I don't regret it.

If the school you want to go to is close by your parents, you could live with them for the 2 years and just do some part time side work to have a little spending money.. take out just the amount of loans you need for tuition to minimize the debt.


But  if you do decide to get the PhD, making the whites on the job call you Dr. Rose would be fun
