Graduate School... The Financial Realities

The spring semester for senior undergraduate students consists of several big decision-making processes. Questions like “what am I doing after I graduate?”, “will I get a job?”, and the ever famous, “should I go to graduate school?” are heard from every corner on campus. 

It can be confusing to know whether or not your future is heading in the right direction. As for me, I’m looking at what graduate schools might hold my interests in a program. In a year from now, however, it will be all about taking graduate school exams, planning out the next few years of my education, and most importantly, l will be looking at financial plans for paying to attend grad school.

It’s very easy to get caught up in private loans, that offer limited interest and easy money-saving options. However, these seemingly saving options are deceiving and can lead you to debt faster than you can believe. Using a trusted financial advisor is key when thinking about your financial future. Someone like Graeme Woods CLU®, ChFC® knows the difficulties of paying for graduate school education. He also knows many strategies to help you achieve all of your financial goals.
