Ish, you should do it. Two years ago I bit the bullet and started grad school. I did not have a full idea of exactly where the cash (approx. $70k all told) would come from, and it has been very difficult, but I am now on the home stretch and I have already landed a vastly better job. I'm a lot happier in my new spot, and the time and energy the degree has cost was/is worth it.

Gotta ask, brewer, where DID the money come from?

Do you have a spouse/partner? Do you have kids?

Did you cut back to bare bones, or do ok with loans and fin aid?

inquiring minds want to know!

(BTW, thanks for the boost)
