re: Those who went BACK to school, how did you make a living?

Work the 2nd shift at an oilfield manufacturing shop.

Leave my apartment every day at 6:30am. Not home until 10-11pm.

Eta: 40-45 hours at work. 12-15 hours every semester.

Still carrying a 3.1.

Worked shift hours in a powerplant. School by day. Wasn't easy with a kid on the way.

Pectus, I mean for those who attended, but now have chosen to go back. It's hard to pay the bills if you get a typical college job. Also, you become accustomed to a standard of living.

So I asked, what did posters who decided to go back to school do in order to make a decent living while doing taking classes again.

In the other thread today someone was talking about how he "escorted" bored country club housewives.

re: Those who went BACK to school, how did you make a living?
Ill be honest, it's hard a shite taking tough classes while working full time. I got a BS (bull shit) kinesiology degree the first go round at LSU. Very little down time and even less sleep this go round. No time to cook. Weekends are always booked up. Especially Sundays.

Good luck. Find a good job that's willing to work with you. My bosses love me and allowed me to make my own schedule when I started back. Now I managed the building at night.

re: Those who went BACK to school, how did you make a living?
Was thinking of going to law school until I got so much negative feedback here. Not so much as career change as I just wanted to do it. Was planning to use 401k$ as that was one way to get at it without penalty and taxes. Now I think I'll do like Tug McGraw and spend about 90% of that fund on beautiful women, Cuban cigars, and fine Irish whiskey, the rest, I'll probably waste.

The more the merrier, no fun to party alone. I'll be like Rodney Dangerfield in "Back To School."

Oh. I got grants and scholarships.

Community College and Online Classes are also a great option.

Thanks, but I still have a ways to go...and I don't think O&G exploration is my thing. I'd rather be a contracted paleontologist.

Gotcha. You can find me in O&G. Too many digits being thrown my way to look away.

I might get sick of being poor one day, I'll go out looking for you and former grad students then.

Wife is doing this now. Every class in her degree program was/is available online, even though the University is in town. She has only had to go take one test at the school, everything else online. Works full time and takes a full class load.


What degree is she working towards? I would love to be able to do this to finish a Geophysics degree, MBA, or maybe go back for some sort of real engineering degree in the future.

Why the hostility? It's a solid degree that I would only be 33 hours plus a summer camp away from graduating with when I graduate with a CM degree + geology, business admin, and tech sales minors next spring.

my job has allowed me to go and come back to work throughout the day. they were not happy at first but once i made it clear i was going and they could let me go and work around my schedule then they were ok with it as they did not want to lose me. Overall my company has been amazing to work for during school.





sounds like a good company to work for must be really small.

why would I want more competitors in the job market?
