hey everyone! here is the scoop. i got into a bsn rn program at a private university. i already have a bs so i thought getting the bsn would be a good route for me.. i already have a lot of the prereqs. done which will go toward the bsn degree. the other public (and cheaper school) is around 70 miles one way.. so that is out. here's the deal... for $20,000 for school, it will cost me over $100,000 to pay back over 20 years!!!! the payments will be around $423 a mo. for 20 years!! and that is only for $20,000. i will need around $60,000 to go. gggggeeeezzzzzz! so that means for $60,000 my monthy payments will be $1,200 a month for 20 years!!!! that is horrible! ahhh!!! [color=olive]what do you all do!!! how do you do it!!??
aaaahhhhh!! i am really discouraged. i can go, but it will cost a fortune
... my husband said that is the cost of a mortgage payment! i am going to apply for scholarships, but oh boy!!!
