Daniel Hawley Grad School Response

The first thing I did when opening up this article was look up UX/UI design that was mentioned in the first few sentences of the article. So if I learned nothing else from the article, I at least discovered that I am interested in how the user interacts/experiences a product or a design and that that is a possibility for me to pursue in my career. As for the rest of the article, I came into it not initially planning on attending grad school. To me, grad school seems like more years you have to spend in school and more money you have to spend on this school just in order to get a title that looks good on a resume. Yes, I understand the benefits of grad school, but they were never very tangible/practical to me. I can understand going back to school in order to gain skill in a new discipline, but at the same time, I fully expect to be able to explore design in whatever job I secure and if I want to learn a new skill, I will have the time and patience to teach myself. Again grad school is not out of the question for me, but it would happen years down the road after I have firmly established myself in the design community and perhaps want to reach out further towards a new field or a new job.
