What to consider before getting your Ph.D. – Part 1 of 3

This is the 1st part of a 3 part series where I discuss what to consider before getting your Ph.D., what its like when working on your Ph.D., and what it was like after getting your Ph.D. and becoming a professor. I am in the instructional design field so my experiences will pertain to that degree though many other Ph.D. experiences will be very similar.

This part really focuses on the decision, applying to schools, and what was going through my head before I made the decision to go get my doctorate degree.
