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


Wait tables again? Had money saved? Student loans?

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


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.

Doing it now. Continuing to work full time, wife works. Doing it online through a brick and mortar university. Not Phoenix or the like.

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


I'm wondering this as well. I'm trying to debate if it's worth it or not to try to go to school or find a job when I get out.

ETA: I'll have the Post 9/11

I work 40 (kinda , I'm on salary) and the boss pays my fees and tuition. I told him I'd never consider going back to school if I had to pay for it.

yea i still work 40 hours(sometimes more) and goto mcneese throughout the day. I take between 12-15 hours a semester. I try and go in early before 6 and if i dont have night class i get home around 530-6. weekends off.

yea im lucky. But if you wanna go back, do it now before you have kids. That is whats made it really hard because I dont wanna do school work since we had them.

sheriff deputy at night student in the day...it really wasnt that bad.

work shift week one....work mon,tue, fri sat sun
week two.....work wed and thurs

what pissed me off was when i applied for grants they told me NO because my income was too high. I guess if my arse was lazy and didnt get a job to pay my bills then the govt would have paid me. bunch of bull shite if ya ask me.

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


civil engineering. To tell you the truth I dunno how I do it. It actually was harder when I was taking the general ed classes because of all the Homework that was graded. Now with just engineering classes I just pay attention during class, and if we have a test I take the day before and sometimes the day before that to study for like 12-14 hours straight those days. We usually only have a max of 2 test and a final so it works out. I also came to the conclusion im not gonna be able to keep a 4.0 now that I have kids like i was able to do the first couple semesters before I had them.

I don't agree with grants per se, but that makes zero sense. i don't understand the logic behind most government programs' policies.
