To get a doctorate or not, that is the question

Graduation Cap & TasselEvery time  I turn around, someone always asks me, “So when are you going for that doctorate?”

The truth is I’m not sure if I am going to get it. Whenever I apply for a degree, I like to have a clear idea and/or plan as to what I want to do with it.

I’m consulting right now as it is, and I’m not sure how long it would take for me to finish. Sure there are online options out there as well, but again, I need to be realistic about the time commitment.

I have a handful of friends in the throws of their doctorate programs and I admit, I’m a bit hesitant.

At this point the only way that I will be able to go to Ph.d or Ed.D school is to win the lottery and live off that for the duration of my studies.

The current argument is that after i get it I can do whatever I want yet have the security of teaching, if I so choose

Is anyone else debating whether or not to go back to school for a degree?
