What’s my plan after graduation?

Howdy Ags! I hope everyone had a wonderful spring break!! I definitely did, and I was not looking forward to going back to classes. BUT look on the bright side: only a little less than two more months of classes until the semester is over AND I graduate! As happy as I am to graduate I am so scared at the same time because now I am a grown up and it’s time to get a job! So what’s my plan? I’m glad you asked!

Unfortunately, I did not get into vet school at Texas A&M. However, I did get an interview to Lincoln Memorial University College of Veterinary Medicine in Tennessee. I am still waiting to hear a decision from them, so in the meantime I am applying to get my master’s degree, just in case I don’t get into vet school.

It took me a while to figure out what I wanted to get my master’s in. At one point I wanted to get it in social work, then I thought about getting it in public heath, and then I thought about getting it in biomedical science.  I finally came to the conclusion that it was best for me to get my master’s in business. I know you are probably thinking, why business? Well, this is why: I wanted to get my master’s in something that will help me if I never get into vet school or even if I do get into vet school. If I get into vet school, I can use my master’s in business when I open my own veterinary clinic, but if I never get in, I can also use it to open my own cupcake shop, gym, or even go into real estate.

So now I am currently in the process of applying to business schools. I am so excited about the future, but at the same time I am so scared because I do not know what is going to happen. I have always been a planned-out person, so the fact that I can’t totally control if or when I get into vet school or business school is very scary to me. But I know it will all work out and the only thing I can worry about right now is finishing this semester and applying to business schools. If you are in the same boat as I am and you are trying to figure out what you want to get your master’s in, here is a bit of advice: choose something that you will like doing and something that will help you in the future. Don’t just go get a master’s in something random or easy because you want to increase your GPA. Go for something that will help you, no matter what!

Good luck with the rest of the semester Ags! Keep working hard because we are almost done!
