I destroyed my savings and worked part time. I found an internship related to my field and between that and my studies, I didn't have much free time.
....and I damn near went completely broke about two months before graduation. I literally moved to up here from Baton Rouge with the money given to me by my new company to relocate.
I had it much easier than some of my classmates, too.
I was debt free when I started school - which made it easier. I paid off my vehicle and had a nice chunk of change saved up in anticipation for the economy to tank.
I lucked out though. I ended up getting a job that pays more than I earned before I went back to school with a better work/life balance.
I'm still very pissed off that I had to spend my retirement savings to put myself through school while the taxpayers bailed out the UAW pensions. I don't think I'll ever get over that.
