Thread subject: The Dyscalculia Forum :: The New GRE

I guess of the three options - Spanish, Linguistics, and Education - my main question to you would be, which do you think is the best choice for your life goals? You mentioned the Master of Education as sort of an afterthought, which makes me think that it's not your primary interest, though do correct me if I'm wrong in assuming that. I suppose even if Education is the most likely to land you a job, there's no good in pursuing it if it's not your primary interest. What do you want to do after you get your Master's degree in whatever you choose? That, to me, would be my primary reason for choosing one degree program over another.
Although it's also fair to say that if I was you and one of them required the GRE and the other didn't, I'd also be likely to choose the option that didn't require me taking a $160 test that I'm not sure I would pass the first time around. I guess it's a matter of weighing the perks and drawbacks of each degree program and what it has to offer, and what it costs.
