I'll pay two times this money to study for a higher degree, "you can't get a better job" is incorrect.

EDIT**: I know what you mean but try to be positive EVEN IN YOUR THOUGHTS, don't just desire, you must match your desires and your habits( thinking and practical habits).

and even in the hardest situations you will manage to find the best way. TRY IT PLEASE, just for a week be carefull of how you think .

YES. Don't knock what you don't have. The masters is required if you ever want to be in a management position. Now dig this: In the Army National Guard all you need to get your commision is 12 college credits; a B.A. to make Major; and a Masters Degree to become a colonel. No Masters - no colonel. It is the same way in civilian jobs. Upward mobility demands a sheep skin.

$11k is surprisingly little for a master's (at least in most fields, I don't know about yours). Also, the economy isn't the greatest right now, and not everyone can have a job. If you spend a few years working on a master's, the economy might improve when you finish. On the other hand, things could get infinitely worse, and your time would have been better spent building a fallout shelter and learning woodland survival skills. Ultimately the right answer is the one you think you will be happy with.

Ulimtately you're only going to get so based on skills and your current education.  At that point you will want to reconsider a Masters, however if you've recently entered the workforce as a new graduate, you have a few years before it will be necessary to have the additional qualifications and with any luck you'll be able to get your employer to pay for your studies.

It is worth it if the study that are you going to take is your passion and it pays enough for you to live. Money is not everything. I would have been in the nuclear navy which pays a bigger reenlistment bonus. But I became a gas turbine electrical technician instead. This is because I love to work on electrical controls and gas turbine/jet engines. I enjoyed the crap out of it and no amount of money can pay that. I now work on instrumention and electrical controls in a power plant. The same thing, electrical controls and gas turbine engine. I still enjoy the crap out of it.

Think about it hard.....................
