I am right now in the process of considering accepting enrollment to Columbia University's graduate school of journalism. Are there any journalists around here that have any advice on the matter? I have been getting all kinds of suggestions (ranging from "You have to go!" to "Don't fucking go!") but few of them come attached to any sort of compelling line of reasoning.
There are other back-up options on the table such as law school but I have all but decided completely against them. I'd like to work in journalism at least for a while in my youth and I'd love any input from someone who can attest to the wisdom/folly of breaking into the industry through J-school.
