My academic advisor is much more positive, she has told me that most grad schools give students jobs on campus to sustain their living and that psychology can be very rewarding financially. My parents think she's full of it, many schools DO lie about the success rate of their students to sell kids on a major.
Also, I am borrowing about $11,000 a year.
Even given the economy, is it seriously worth it to give up passion for a career that pays more?
Do grad schools really assist students financially as much as my advisor claims?
Is there a compromise here?
