I called Sallie Mae after being preapproved for the Tuition Answer loan. I told the rep that I start school in August. He said that the correct application is not out yet, and it should be available online sometime this month. He told me to wait and resubmit the new application. Has anyone else had this problem?
OK, it is 2006. A stay-at-home dad is as good as any mom-hands down! In addition, it is much better to get school over with while your children are young and probably won't remember much of you being gone. Elementary school is when things start to get busy, with all those after school activities etc....
That being said, I am 4 months from finishing CRNA school. My husband stays at home with our 3-year-old and they have the best relationship ever. Try not to focus too much on the money. When you graduaute not only will you be making great money, but you will have a job which will give you greater autonomy and satisfaction than you had as as RN. So it is not really all about the money anyhow. It won't take "30-40 years to pay it off" as someone said. Think about this.... if you maintained your same standard of living while you are in school (minus the tuition and books) and made 120,000/year afterward, you could pay off those loans in 3 years or less. Also, interest on student loans is tax deductible.
Also don't forget about scholarships, fellowships, grants and forgivable loans.... they are out there if you look- I know because I got them.
p.s. harvest cases are interesting
