Tour

Today we went on a tour of the UW EC materials building. It was interesting, they have alot of very expensive equipment that undergrad schools normally do not have. They have 2 Scanning Tunneling Micoscopes, a breeder they are putting together, a XPS (X-ray photospectrophy machine, or something like that), A TPM, at least one ion mill, and this machine that can take readings of 1 part of one billion particals. That is like taking an olympic sized pool full of sand and getting one specific grain of sand out of it.

Which bring up the question. Do I take my 2 year degree and call it good enough, or go into an undergrad school and then onto a grad school to get a masters or possibly even a Phd? Much to think about.

"Good enough" is never good enough. Best go for the 4 year, the advanced degrees if you can stand the pain. The baccalaureate is the key to a salaried job. I know too may JuCo students in their 30s and 40s still working for an hourly wage.

I agree, definitely go for the four year degree, a lot of the good paying jobs won't even look at your resume if you only have a two year degree.
