Internet friends, I'm curious - what graduate degrees do you think have a good bang for their buck these days? It seems like the market for JDs is shot in all but a few areas, like...real estate. I think getting an MD is still a pretty risk-averse option because adcoms do a decent job of weeding out people who are unlikely to want or be able to finish the long road. (Although I am hearing that more and more students are having trouble being placed into residencies after med school, but the rates are still low compared to say, law school grads who can't find full-time legal jobs.) I hear mixed things about MBA programs. Two fields I hear consistently good things about are computer science and engineering - that the degrees lead to jobs easily and that graduate degrees are worth it. Throw in your two cents - I have been a student for so long, and I'm a newbie to the big bad world of work. I'd love to hear what your experiences have been and what your perceptions are!
