I have moments of thinking about a Bachelor's, but I'm just so sick of being a student for the time being.

Associates via community college.

Wish it had been a bachelors, but transferring it to the university was kind of financially out of reach. Nor did they really have quite what I wanted anyhow.


But as least I can say I graduated with high honors.

Bachelor's, anything more than that is too much work for me. By the time I was 23 I was pretty much burned out of school and studying, I don't think I could have done anything after.

High school graduate, with some college. Was going for a Bachelor's in humane or environmental law, but that sort of fizzled out due to lack of access to the courses. (It was online.)

Community college. Six classes away from a Associates Degree.

But there are days when I agree with Bob Marley's old response regarding his education.
"I don't need education - just inspiration. If I was educated, I'd be a damned fool."

In all seriousness, I learned some cool stuff throughout the years.

I'm not finding it all that much different in terms of workload though there is way less hand-holding. For me the biggest difference is that graduate school is far more like trade school. Is education as a means to an end, where as an undergrad you can have education as an end unto itself.

If you know what you want to study, then my recommendation would be to apply to grad school after you come back from burnout. Writing papers, and studying, are skills that you lose if you don't practice them.

Working full time and going to school is no picnic either.

I am going through my second masters program. The key differences are its not as many courses at at a time. The first program was immediately after I finished undergraduate. It was in the classroom unlike the graduate professional studies program that I currently in. In both cases its less test and more papers and discussion. Citations are done in everything. Its time consuming yet manageable because you have just a class at a time in GPS programs while traditional only two to three. I reccommend doing graduate professional studies program so you can get an in within your field and work on a degree for advancement. If you are in school and want to go further keep going. I am wiping away rust after four years in the field and relearning citations was a pain.

I have an associates degree and I am working on my Bachelor's degree. And let me tell you it has been a grueling difficult experience for me both academically and financially to go to school. It's taken me a long, long time to get through because of both finical and personal set backs, and also because I have a learning disability that makes it very hard to learn and maintain information. And during times where I had to take time off from school for some reason, I have found that I have either forgotten information or gotten rusty in areas that I had precariously tried to build knowledge/skills in.

Plastron Café is 100% right, the self discipline and capabilities to study and write papers gets lost if you are away from it for a while. So don't let burn out make you rusty. try applying your self to keeping the skills you have learned sharp even while away from school. My legit biggest fear is graduating from college with pretty grades but still having a shaky grasp on the hands on skills I'm desperately trying learn in my field and not being able to make it as professional later on. That's why I have bent over backwards trying to find ways to supplement my skills, and it's not easy...

Right now, the highest I have is my high school diploma, which I received two weeks ago. In September, I will be working towards my General Education Ged Eds before moving forward with a degree in Literature, Film, or Writing. I'll be going for a minor in marketing as well too.
