Given today's economy, a lot of people may be wishing that their educations had been better. If money was no problem, would you go back to school? Would you study in the same field you've been working, or would you try something completely different? Are there any other factors to consider?

Wow, twelve years of chem! I took two classes of chem (and had to re-take one due to failing the first time - oops), and could barely stand it. Oh, and now your name makes sense, nice.

Hi there. Well, if money was no problem, yes, I would like to go back to being a student, though I probably would choose a less tedious course that my original course (i.e. Accountancy), something that I'm actually interested like Foreign Languages or International Studies or Literature. I don't think could survive four more years of intensive study as what I spent earning my Accountancy degree.

A friend of mine was an accounting major, and I know that there was no way I could have gone through that program. Kudos.

I would go back to school for a teaching degree. I was always into child care.

Yes! If money was no object, then I would definitely go back to school. I would work not only on my Masters degree, but I would also try to pick up another bs if that was possible, well it's possible, but I'm not sure I would have the time. I do not that I definitely want to obtain my masters degree.

I always love to learn new things and experience new stuff. I always love the feeling of well educated and learned individual. It is something that I cherish and be proud of. If money would not be a problem despite the crisis we are experiencing, I would still pursue to study. I am targeting to take the Bar Exam and become a lawyer. After that, I still consider taking additional knowledge related to that field. Or perhaps, try something new as a back up plan which is opposite or a course that may help me in establishing for business.
