Other than the updates on graduate school admissions, I find this forum to be overall, very depressing..
Sure the economy is tough right now and there are not a lot of jobs in planning (nor practically any other field)..
Sure planning doesn't have the same income starting salary or ceiling that lawyers, doctors, accountants have..
And maybe most of the planners that come on here are the disgruntled employees who need a place to vent about making the wrong career choice..
But can we please hear some encouraging stories of planners that are happy in their jobs, see a bright future for planning or thought their graduate school investment paid off in the end!
