As the end of my undergraduate college education is coming, I've seriously started to consider what I would be doing after I graduate. My utmost priority is definitely getting into dental school and that is what I'll be working on doing.

I'd would love to make money by working on campus but it wouldn't allow time for extracurricular activity, which every graduate school (no matter what field it is) requires. Therefore, have forfeited any opportunities of job income and devoted myself to my university's volunteer programs where I'd be helping out in the hospital's emergency department and in my university's dental school.

With this experience, it'll help my chances of getting into graduate school and when I come out from there, money shouldn't be a problem (though I'd be drowning in debt).

Many people have stressed that a college education is to be considered an investment and this is the perfect example of why everyone should take advantage of any further education available. My estimated annual salary with just the bachelor's degree would be in the range of $35,000 to $40,000 while coming out of dental school would provide for a salary of no less than $100,000.

Even with the costs of higher education, the intrinsic value of knowledge is priceless. That is why giving up a job for a chance to land a dream job would prove its worth.

Plus, volunteering is a great way to give back to the community!!

I volunteered for a while after finishing my undergraduate. It help me get into grad school and looks good on the resume.
