Hello to all my new Foolish friends. I am actively working at paying off my debt. Even with charging the computer I should be debt free in two years. Here is the other side of this situation. I work for a company that will pay 80% of my schooling. Now that I can attend school online I want a degree.

I have almost finished my first class (hey, are any of you VB programmers? would you be willing to help me a little?) and when I turn in my A I'll be reimbursed. I'm ready to enroll in another class now, which means I have to pay another hideous amount up front. Since this is to the betterment of self and career--and will definitely lead to higher wages--should I ignore the fact that my credit card balance is going to jump until I get the reimbursement check?

What would the Fools do when presented with the choice between paying off debt or paying it down a little slower because of school?

Ms Joe
