I received a call from a counselor at my alma mater the other day asking me if I would be interested in applying for a master’s degree program through them. I am, of course, interested in getting my master’s degree and that is definitely on the ‘to do’ list. Naturally, I thought they were only asking because then they would get more money (cynical much…?) so I didn’t think too much of it – they’re a low second choice on my list of possible schools. As a teaser, they told me I would have my graduation fee refunded and could possibly have the ‘resource fee’ waived if I was accepted. (resource fee being the rental for the online books, which I’m not interested in anyway. I want a BOOK in my hands)
But then I asked around a little bit from people who graduated from the same school, and they weren’t asked if they wanted to apply. Hmmm…maybe there’s more than simply getting my money involved…?
So. I have an interview in July with the dean and a panel.
