Just wanted to say, u gotta do what u gotta do and its amazing what u can do when u HAVE to. I had no choice but to work part time during my program and I had no room to complain about it because most of the others in my class had kids AND worked part if not full time. Also I consider myself lucky I didnt have to work full time, since my fiance carried most of the weight for both of us for this year. Yes many of the ones who had a rough life are gone, but also many of the ones who didnt have to work or worry about money. Its really about how determined u are
I looked at it as a sacrifice I had to make in order to have a better future. Yes it was a struggle but what was my other option? work minimum wage jobs and live paycheck to paycheck for eternity or give up one year of my life and work my butt off so one day I dont have to?
Well I graduate at basically the top of the class(not for sure yet but if not then Im at least one of the top 3) on Sept. 6. I must say its been worth the sweat and the tears...lol
ok, off my soapbox! About the tuition, I was lucky enough to get a scholarship to my program so all I had to buy was books and uniforms. But had I not gotten in, I would have been willing to pay whatever it cost! Im pretty sure that they offer enough in loans/grants in programs like yours to cover tuition, u should call the financial aid office to find out more. Just think of it as u will make that money back in a year or two if u subtract your old potential income from the one u will have with your license.
best of luck to u!
