  •  I'm getting my degree a week from tomorrow. (5+ / 0-)

    At forty-eight years old.

    Yes, I'll have some loans, but, really, not a lot--because I go to a state school and I did get some grants...mostly after I went back and proved I could do the work. You go to a community college (and I had no loans to take out to get through that) and transfer over with a 3.91, guess what? They find a way to take you.

    And I want to be a teacher, so, obviously, I didn't do this for the money :D.

    BTW, the only people I know with college degrees still in McJobs graduated within the last few years, except for one girl who got a degree in a field that would require her to move if she wanted a job, but she's being lazy about it :).

    First, tell me how your brilliant idea will pass the House. Second, tell me how Obama can get anything past the House. They we can talk.

      And living on the street I still could not afford the $300+for textbooks for each class ( they change the books every year so they can charge for a "new edition" I almost failed a math course because the assignments are different in used editions) -and waiting for half the semester to pass before I could replace that money with the pell grant.
