Tiger Woods' former mistress Rachel Uchitel is set to go back to school and study for a master's degree, celebrity gossip website RadarOnline reported Monday.

A close friend told the website Uchitel was accepted by two graduate schools -- one to get a master's in criminal justice and the other for a master's in forensic psychology.

"She hasn't picked which one she is going to take yet but both are amazing schools, and she is very excited," the source added.

The former event planner and New York nightclub hostess also was said to be taking "an intensive 10-week training program in forensic investigation" in a bid to turn her talents towards becoming a crime expert -- on television news shows.

"Rachel is following her dream. She has always been obsessed with anything related to crime -- television shows like 'Nancy Grace,' 'Cold Case,' 'To Catch a Predator.' Now she wants to work at a news organization as part of an investigation unit," a source told RadarOnline.
