Is anyone else really frazzled by the requirements of their grad school for admissions, licensure, etc.? I graduated with my Bachelor's a year ago and never thought I'd even THINK about grad school. Became a teacher, didn't like it, gained enough self confidence to go back and do what I love: counseling.
So, here I am, going to get my Master's to be an LPC or LCDC. Letters of recommendation, a paper on why I'm doing this (crazy in depth, self reflection, growth, experiences, specific goals and future plans)......then, that's not even considering the stress from the financial end. I have $60K debt from undergrad, now about to tack on at least another $40K. How is that a good idea? But people say, go back while you're young.
Thoughts? Anyone else freaking about this?
Anyone that has freaked out and survived it all?
