I'm an BS Information Technology graduate. During high school, I wanted to study about earthquakes and thunderstorm. I like to study nature and/or calamities. I think the world of Science is interesting. But right now, given a chance to go back to I'd love to study Performing Arts. I'm always been in love with dancing, singing and acting (I think). I grew up watching The Sound of Music. My all time-ultimate favorite musical movie! EVER! I love love love everything about the movie. I love watching modern musical movies and also dancing movies. HSM 1-3, Step Up 1-2, Drumline, Fame... Etc... And I find BS Psychology or getting Masters in Psychology would be a good course. Second course. ;)

Wishing on going back to school would be a privileged for me. Because my parents already done their part to send me to school. SO I guess if I wanted to go to school it should be me who is going to support my schooling. But I would like to earn more rather than go back to schooling. But if there is someone who is willing support my schooling I would like to study on a higher level which is continue my master's degree in the field of business administration. But not really taking another course.

Well, I pretty much wanted to study philosophy or national security but I can't say that I am too serious about it now, for I am busy studying my main discipline which is the law. I know how it feels to be ambiguous about what you want to study but in the end I believe you've got to check your chances with what you've already chosen, and if it really doesn't work for you then maybe start thinking about changing the direction... :)

Philosophy and National Security is interesting. It would be a fun course. But Law? Not for me! I hate reading! HAHAHA. A friend of mine told me that if I can stand reading 5hrs, then I can manage being in a Law school... But I only read Memoirs, Biography books and magazine... LOL

Never. I hate school and I will never go back to school.. Well, actually, I used to like school but it all changed when I took the Nursing. My college was too strict, scary and very time pressured, it scared the heck out of me. The other reason why I don't want to go back to school is that I don't want to graduate, the last time I graduated, I almost fainted in the stage. Good thing I didn't, it would have been horrible. But I still love to learn about things, but not go to a university for it. I still join seminars and trainings; and last year, I enrolled a commercial cooking class.

In my own opinion, go and do what your heart says! Anyhow, you've finish BS Accountancy. You already got your diploma for that course and even though its not your interest you were able to manage to finish it. So you have to give your self in a chance to study the field you love, journalism! GO FOR IT! ;)

When I would have a second course, I think I would like to take some major in nursing. I was in medical school a few years ago but I didnt pursue it cause it was too hard for me and I wasnt enjoying my life as a medical student. I always wanted to work in a hospital but I wont be able to do that now cause I am now a teacher by profession. If given the chance to study, I would major on nursing so I can work in the hospital.

I would love to go back to school to learn something a little more unconventional like hypnotherapy. Originally I wanted to be a speech therapist so I would still like to go and do the relevant courses and training for that too.

i don't think so... not at this moment... even if i want to study again, i will study the same course that i had done before but take my PhD because i had completed my master on that course... i had thought about it but i will have to really consider whether i want to do it or not as i also have a full time job and planning to have a baby... take care and have a nice day...

Incidentally, going back to school is one of the items on my wish list. If I can go back to school again, I would want to take up Literature. I've always been very interested in Literature works like those from Shakespeare, and some other contemporary writers. I am really fascinated about the minds of these great writers and play writers. They know human nature so well, thus able to portray their characters so real, so life-like.

Yeah, as far as I am concerned, I think I do not want to go back to my school to have a second time for reading book. Though it is a very good time for me to study there in high school,when I have a lot of good friends ,and enjoy a lot of fun with them. It can still have some problems with studying,if go back to school.

In my opinion, a second course is actually a waste of time. Instead of getting a second course, why not take a masteral degree and a doctorate degree of your chosen field? Since there is really no limit in educating ourselves, a second course to enhance your personal interest is also okay. If I have enough time I would also love to take up units in garments and fashion, Textile designing and other subjects concerning creative arts. I would also love to take up journalism and literature. I congratulate you though for wanting to go back to school. It is a rare desire for people nowadays. It seems that everyone is busy earning a living! I hope that you will actualize your dream and desire.

With the bad economy, I have been looking into going back to school. I am looking into get a Masters Degree in Special Education. I know that there is financial aid available. President Obama gives more money for college. I think you should take the opportunity to study if you can.
