Subject: RE: Masters in statistics. Degree of difficulty - starting over at age 30.
I would probably advise against going back to school. Yours is a common enough situation. Go to school, get a job, dislike job, go back to school, lather, rinse, repeat.
It does sound like you know very little about your new target field, beyond that it is not like your current job. Grass is always greener.
You mentioned biostats. Given your bio background, would you really even need another degree to get a job in that? I'd think you could probably land something relying mostly on your bio background with maybe a stat class or two thrown in.
Resist the urge for another degree. They're expensive, time consuming, and at the end of the day, a Masters probably won't improve your prospects much, if at all. I got my MSME almost three years ago and while it was fun, it was also kind of a waste of time. Just my $0.02.
