Alderman Posted August 29, 2014 Share Posted August 29, 2014 Hey there, I am a month away from beginning a DPhil at Oxford in International Development. This will also be fully funded by a Clarendon scholarship. A really great opportunity, no doubt about it. However, the other day I got a job offer. It's not a ton of money, but it is a great opportunity to work on some of the things I'd be studying first hand and it does seem to offer the possibility to advance fairly quickly. So the dilemma: an Oxford-Clarendon DPhil, which, as an incredible academic and personal challenge is a dream come true in many ways, or a promising job, which offers solid work experience in a related field and a steady salary to boot. What would you do? Oh, I have until Monday to decide. No big deal... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
