  Dear Ralph,

  I'm already a junior now, and many of my classmates are preparing to take the postgraduate entrance examination. I want to join them but hesitate, because I come from a poor, remote village, and it hasn't been easy for me financially to get through college. Though my parents do not oppose my continuing my studies, I would feel guilty. On one hand, I think that as an adult, I should take on the responsibility of easing my family's financial burden. On the other hand, I really want to review my lessons starting now. How can I approach this?

  Ren Xiaoliang,

  Many people ask this question. Ask your parents what they really want. They may think graduate school will reward you with a better job later than going to work now and therefore support your goal so the whole family can prosper. In this case, you would ultimately feel guiltier if you dropped the postgraduate school goal. If the family income is so low that you must work to make your relatives comfortable, your parents may ask you to work now. In this case, work until the family income improves, then try for graduate school again.
