I am currently working as an actuary, and am currently applying for (in my opinion, a decent) online M.S. Statistics program so that I can continue working in the actuarial position.
My intention is, if I do get accepted to the M.S. Statistics program, to pursue a Ph.D. after finishing the program.
Is it possible for me to continue my job while in a Ph.D. program? Does anyone here have a similar experience dealing with the conflict between pursuing a Ph.D. and working a full-time position? Do I have to choose just one of them?
[I apologize if this is a duplicate.]
