Junior year- Dawn of the real life

Filed in Graduate School by on October 29, 2010

Hi all,

It’s quite surprising to me how my perspective on college has changed over the past two years. In freshman year, I wanted to do something that was ‘cool’. In sophomore year, I was seeking out something I ‘love’. I am a junior now and I feel close to the real world than ever before. In a matter of months, I’ll be facing choices that’ll decide the direction of my future. It is stressful, but exciting at the same time. Now, I am trying to do everything that’ll fetch me a ‘job’.

I’ve been thinking about what I want to do after college. Ideally, I want to work for a few years and then get a masters or a mba. Eventually I would like to be an entreprenuer. But I will still have to apply to grad school now as a back up, in case the job market decides to test me. WIth all this in mind, it’s also time to finish my IQP and apply for a good MQP.

Over the past few weeks, I’ve also been trying to figure out a strong career plan for the future. I am trying to look into the future and anticipate a field that’ll provide good entreprenuership opportunities. I think Systems Engineering is the way to go. I am thinking of graduate school in Systems Engineering. But how much more schooling I can take and how many years I can survive in engineering is still a big question.
