My advice would be to explore something you want to learn about, something new that you’re interested in, and to make sure that the university you choose is a supportive one.
I have gotten the chance to also learn about the science of climate change and policy and governance too; things which I would have been apprehensive to study before.
I’m quite young as well. I’m 21 years old. I don’t find age to be an important factor as such, but I do feel the extra year studying with a MA will help me mature.
I didn’t want to spend the rest of my working life being pushed around to whatever job the bank had for me - I needed to do something I enjoyed. To come to that decision so quickly, I must have known it’s what I wanted to do deep down, but I needed a good reason to follow through.
I filled out my CAO and ended up getting offered my third choice. Initially I was upset after all my hard work however my university has been a great support to me in every aspect of college life.
