This paper is part of a continuing series of papers describing the experiences of students as they contend with academic studies, marriage and family, job-related responsibilities, and other activities that compete with being a full-time student. In this paper, the author discusses “multi-tasking,” the intellectual challenges of school, the all-consuming nature of advanced education, and the irony of personal, social, and health sacrifices one makes while seeking a public health degree – asking rhetorically, “Is it worth it?”
