I've wanted to obtain graduate studies since I received my BEd many years ago. I looked back at the sea of graduate and doctorate candidates and knew then that I couldn't stop learning. In fact, at that moment I realized I didn't know much of anything.
Most USA schools require the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) where students are tested in reading, writing and arithmetic. The test is not difficult but it is tricky and requires preparation. I'm dedicated the months of August-October to prepare and write this test.
You may ask what graduate program I want to pursue. Fair question. To which, I cannot reply. I'm looking at several. Obviously at my age, this isn't going to be a career move. It's an open road with many options.
