I want to do more academic advising and go to school.
Why do you need pointers on what to do? This is what you want to do, right? : )
Hard to know what to tell you since you haven't said what degree you have or specifically whether advising is actually your career goal or just your temporary job while attending school. You probably need a more specific career goal than what you've outlined here. That Ed.D. sounds pretty specialized to me. Before I enrolled in a graduate program, I would make sure I knew exactly what I was going to do, and then find a grad program that matched that, then go to the best school that I could get into. I'm not sure how far an Ed.D. from SHSU would take you. (Not as far as a Ph.D. from U of H.)
