Finish Already

Sis #1 is turning 19 in 10 days. She will have her bachelors by the end of this year.

I need to get crackin'. I have 39 credits left. I have dropped and postponed classes for about the past 6 months. I wasn't focusing and honestly just did not want to do the work.

39 credits equals 13 classes. I might be able to get out a few of those credits by writing a few papers on previous training and work experience.

Each class is 5 weeks long. 5 weeks times 13 classes is 65 weeks, without any breaks. Longer than I want. With employer tuition reimbursement (which I am eligible for next month), I can double up on classes. That will cover 3 classes a year. With financial aid, I cannot double up.

My sister, who is 7 years younger than me, is going to graduate before I do. Ugh!

My goal is to have this done by this time next year. Although, if there was every a glitch in University of Phoenix's computer system that reduces the amount of credits I need, I won't cry over it.

I have to say, I considered it very carefully, and I could never do an on-line degree. There is a Master's I'd love to do if it had "classes", but I just can't do the online stuff.

I hope you can finish since you're so close though.

I'll hack into the system & see what I can do ;-)

It's not a race. We all choose different paths and do it at our own pace. You have OODLES of job experience for someone your age. College doesn't teach you that. Trust me... I still had to get the job experience like everyone else. You just did yours in a different order.
