    There is a local private university in this town.

    which is $100,000 for about 4 years.

    How anybody works full time for shit pay, manages to keep from being homeless and goes to school and managed to find the time to get the homework done.. i dunno how they do it
    Have you tried correspondence school? They usually will give you loans based on need? Unless you make a lot of money you shouldn't have a problem. If you applied online to a school like University of Phoenix or Cappella University they will usually do whatever it takes to get you the money.

    At the same time I did the 5-2 am for a room in a house thing and payed my way through school the first two years. Now I have a Masters degree. It took forever but I got there. One trick I did was to take as many classes as I could for the "full time rate" so I took 21 credits each semester, waitressed until 2 in the morning. The only plus side of waitressing is you are spared the ramen noodle hell because you eat at work. But at the same time, count me in as one who busted my ass to get through school.

    And I think this is an excellent example for Nicole's argument of qualifications not meaning much when a person with a Masters can't even write cohesive arguments or even literate postings.

    Nicole must have been (and still is) up to something, cause I haven't seen a post since the ban was lifted.

    I'm curious. And hoping she'll be back.

    She has a Master's in Spokesmodelling, and did her thesis on Biofeedback Measurement in Furniture. I think she found that an Early American dinette set especially likes a good fondling.
