It's kind of weird how things work out, but sitting next to me in my philosophy class is a nurse of some 15 years. She said she thought about me after the first night of class and urged me to please not give up. There always seems to be an easier solution to problems, such as "throwing the towel in." But as wahoowa said above, I would probably regret it later. Something you've wanted to do for 20 years or so just doesn't cease being something you want to do anymore. Thanks for letting me share and I will keep you posted on my progress.

Every school you look in to has different requirements. Some you can get into and take the classes you need other wont even let you start, so I have to go to school full time for 3 years for a total of 5 years for a 4 year degree.
That or pay UofP type tuition.
