Really tough on the kids. My parents did not have the money to send me to college. Had to join the military to secure the GI Bill. "Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country". Ever hear of that one before???

But votech will get you started! I went through school with out the cost of living loan! My son choose the 2100 every 3 months cost of living and interest loan from Sallie mae! which I tried to talk him out of it, His stupid Granny signed for him. bad move he owes 49,000 with interest 10,000 plus off the top!And he choose nursing for Job security and the money RN's make so that loan was for nothing. thats why I wouldn't sign! but I feel for the youth of our nation! GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!

You got through school in 15 months. Wow! Now what are you going to do with your three (3) courses in "formal" writing. You did matriculate in English and writing, didn't you? If you would have stuck with it, you could have had your Doctorate in at least 24 months.
