OMGosh I got accepted!!! Got the email yesterday while at work!! Im still in complete disbelief! Not sure if I'm posting this in the right place. But I had a few questions, what should I expect when I start? Work load, homework load? I work full time, do any of you work and go to school? Yayyyyyy!!!
Congratulations! The workload is going to be intense. The homework load is going to be also intense. It is entirely doable. There are some caveats to that, such as where you work, what kind of work you do, how likely is that you can do some studying at work. In my case, I got very lucky in that I was able to work full-time and go to school full time. The reason is that my work allows me to do some studying at work, which relieves a lot of stress and decreases the amount of studying that I have to do at home. Yes, I said that I work full-time. If you do not have a job that can accommodate your schooling, then I would suggest finding a way to dial back on the work hours so that you can do studying.
If I did not have to work while going to school, I would go to school and not work. It would make things a whole lot easier from a number of different perspectives. Unfortunately, I do not have that choice. I must work and go to school.
I would suggest that you use the time that you have between now and starting school to determine whether or not you can go to school and work at the same time, and if you must work, how much you must work. This is going to be the hardest, funnest, most interesting time of your life in all probability. Take advantage of every moment you can to learn as much as you can so that your life will be a whole lot easier down the road.
