Dear Experts, I got my B.S. in Biology (concentration in Neurobiology) and went into research in the world of academia after graduation. Three years later I'm still at the same job and I'm burnt out! My original plans of going to graduate school to pursue a PhD in Neuroscience now only exhaust me. My P.I. has worked me to the bone, and often compliments me on how I'm functioning at the level of a graduate student about to defend her thesis...but I'm not. What does one do with such a specific degree and also how I do I re-define my future? Now what?! I've always had the idea of dentistry as a profession in my mind, but I fear my undergraduate record will only lead to rejection. Here is how our CAREEREALISM-Approved Experts answered this question on Twitter: Q#424 You never know until you try. Apply and see what happens. If you are rejected, find out why and make changes. (@gradversity) Q#424 1) Too much worrying. It's just a degree. 2) Life's too short to do something you don't enjoy. (@beneubanks) Q#424 Gather info re dentistry; bio courses shd meet some pre-reqs. Go 4 ur dream now! Y wait, have regrets? (@juliaerickson) Q#424 You shift gears and persue the career you really want. Downplay experience on your resume and focus on skills.

If the stress of juggling school, work, and family is making life difficult, you are not alone. According to a recent study on college employment, 43% of the nation's full-time college undergraduates and 81% of part-time undergraduates worked while getting a degree.
