Likewise. I put myself through school w/ a part-time job. That was a very useful part of the experience. 'Course, that was in the mid-60's when tuition was a lot cheaper because of state subsidies.

The engineering school I went to (WPI) now costs over $55,000/year. You couldn't work your way through school if you had a job that paid the same as a new graduate's starting salary.
