I think someone who has a good strong PLAN, and a SCHEDULE, will probably be fine... But I think figuring on going back "someday" is a pretty good recipe for not going back at all...
I have noticed that life tends ot fill up pretty quickly these days. I personally do NOT have a desire or particularly a need to go back to school for an advanced degree, but IMO it would be quite a bit tougher to do that NOW than it was ten years ago... and I'm still single. I'd bet that once there is a spouse, and even kids in the mix the odds of going back to school get pertty long indeed.
Certainly there ARE people who go back and get degrees later. Heck, there was an article a month or so ago about a lady who got her degree at age 92... But IMO those types are definitely the exception, not hte rule.
