Hi all! I have an interesting quandary to put
before you.

I'm hoping to leave the working world next year and
pursue a Ph.D. (Foolish enough for you?) But, I have
a modest-yet-significant amount of $ in my 401(k)
plan. I'm fairly sure the universities to which I'm
applying will not have rollover options for the likes
of me, though I'm not sure.

Assuming there are no such beasts & I'm allowed the
chance to enjoy indentured servitude, what are my
options? Is there a way to avoid the 10% penalty for
early withdrawal?
