Awesome. You should take action to go after your graduate degree starting in the fall though. I had the same plan when I was 22. Took me 15 years to finally go back to grad school and it was a TON harder with a job, house, family... Just do it now!

In the mean time, take a 6 month break, catch your breath, and enjoy your accomplishment!

We'll see. Depends on how busy I am... and how much my work will pay for.

I'll keep that in mind, but I don't really see that happening with the amount of responses I'm getting from other areas. Just got off a phone interview with Polaris too.

Congratualtions. I graduated BSME in '94 when it was still GMI. It has served me well so far. Good luck with the job search.

BSME's are in high demand. I just got off the phone with a candidate. Presented him an offer, he's got another he just received he is considering as well.

I have a BSEE who accepted an offer from me today, he had 3 to compare to.

Entry level Engineers are in very high demand.

I do have to laugh though. Got a phone call today from whirlpool... they were looking for someone in the 30k range. I laughed at the lady on the phone.
