Is grad school worth it? My dad seems to have a view that college is the new high school and grad school is what college meant 40-50 years ago. Basically, if you go to grad school, you have a better shot at landing a job and get paid more as everyone is going to college nowadays. I'm going to graduate this next coming year in industrial design, and my ultimate goal is to start my own design firm in the future, so I was thinking either continue with a masters in industrial design or a MBA so it can help me with opening my own business? Any other things I should be considering? What is your guys' opinions on graduate school? When is it worth it and when is it not?
