query regarding luxury problems:


Recommended Posts

I am currently doing a MA at an Ivy in a slightly different field than soc. I'm one year into a two year program. Last year, I deferred a PhD offer at a top 30 soc program in order to pursue this one. However, job propsects seem to be hit or miss in the feild I am pursuing. Though, I have made fantastic contacts, meet huge people in my area of interest, and will research under one this summer.


In any case, my question is: 1) Should I pursue the PhD at a school which is ranked much lower than my current school in fall 2013, so I don't have to go through the gruesome process of applying to PhD programs all over again or should I forget about this school altogether and apply to higher ranked programs, if a job doesn't materialize from this degree?



 The schools are two hours apart, so I'd have to juggle between both locales. Though, if I were to be offered funding again, it'd offset the cost of living for me a lot. 


Any thoughts?
