Here's what I was getting at: are you spending more on classes that don't mean much to you than you would on interest on your loans? Or is class time that you are spending money on using up time that you could use to get extra income?


My school offers tuition discounts to full time employees--it used to be $5.00 per credit hour and fees; this was recently raised to 10% of tuition costs (or abot 13$ per credit hour).

My loans are at 7.75%--I was paying about 300 bucks a month in interest. (or about 3600 per year.) My tuition costs me about 5-600 per year.

Clearly a deal.

I know a number of peoplel who take classes at a community college to get the same deal; much cheaper tuition.
