In what ways, if any, did your preference of work status affect your educational/career decisions? For example, I was originally going to go to medical school, but changed my mind because I knew that as a doctor I would not have the work/family schedule that I preferred. In the meantime, I saw professors with their children on campus all the time. It appeared to be a nice balance, and it partially influenced my decision to go into academia as a career instead.
What educational or career choices did you make based on your preferred work/family balance?
