Degree or not degree?

I’m nearing that age when you start to wonder what should I do with the rest of my life? The quarter life crisis. In a quest to find the right graduate school, this is what I’ve learned:

Apply to colleges with large endowments. Harvard really has a large petty cash fund.

Look at free unconventional learning models. Degreed helps you find free learning tools based on subject; this is where I found MIT’s The Creative Spark course.

Don’t be fooled by a graduate certificate program.

Teach for America, still healthy and strong, defers your student loans. The founder, Wendy Kopp recently spoke at BU’s 2013 commencement.

SNHU’s College for America acknowledges the workforce crisis and offers a competency-based, self-paced AA degree, the first nationally accredited program of its kind.
