I'm down to my senior year of undergraduate study at my university and I have been considering their offer of a Fast-Track program that allows me to start course work on my Masters degree before graduating with my Bachelors. This program basically allows me to take graduate level classes while still taking undergraduate classes in my senior year. The kicker being I won't be required to submit any GMAT or GRE scores through this program, that saves me extra stress and money not to mention earning my Masters a year early.
So here's my question, this program is done through my university. If I complete it I will earn both my Bachelors and Masters degree at the same institution. I have heard from many people that it's not really a good idea to get a graduate degree at the same school you received your undergraduate degree; something about not having a diversified education maybe? They really couldn't tell me an exact reason why by many people have told me that. But a lot of other people have told me otherwise as well. The mere fact that you earned a degree overshadows where you earned it was their explanation.
So should I pursue my Masters at my university or maybe find another school instead? (I probably will make this decision within a month or two)
