Grad school in New York? I need advice about the advantages of post-secondary education versus "real-world" experience. I aspire to be a fashion editor, and am finishing my Bachelor's in English at a school in my hometown in Kentucky. After I graduate, I plan on moving to a larger city in the South to further build my portfolio and get more experience in publishing through internships, etc, because I know I'm just not quite ready yet for New York. My question is, should I pursue some sort of Master's degree or certificate program in New York, or should I just move there after a couple of years and try and get more internships or entry-level positions? I know competition is fierce, and I feel like something like NYU's M.S. in Publishing might give me an edge (especially because so many internships require you to be in school), but I'm not sure if it would actually be worth it. Does anyone have any advice, or recommendations? I want to make up my mind about post-grad education soon so I can prepare for it if necessary. Thanks for any help!!
