Grad school vs. Work

  1. Apr 30, 2007 #1
    Hey guys, I am wondering what the majority of you did right after you finished your BS degree. I am deciding between continuing to grad school vs. going right to industry. I don't want to do both at the same time.

    If possible, with your answer, please tell me your field (EE, ME, etc.)

    I kind of need to make a decision soon... and I am pretty torn.

    I went straight to my MSEE after my BSEE. I was pretty sure that I wanted to get an MSEE, and it seemed easiest to just do the extra 8 months and get it right away. Also, I was offered a scholarship by Bell Labs for my MSEE, so that was extra motivation to do it right away.
