I think it would be foolish not to get started. But you need to be Foolish going about it. Get it? foolish, Foolish? Anyway, DRIPs are great becuase they provide the ability to easily invest small amounts of capital (I'm in college too, so I'm always broke) with minimal transaction cost over the long haul (greedy brokers). If you haven't already, maybe check out www.microivesting.net for some more Foolishness on DRIPs. I'd also look at the IRA thing while your in school, A little is better then nothing when it comes to the miracle of compounding. Also, once a 'year' is lost to an IRA, it's lost forever. You can't go back and invest 3000 or whatever the cap is now for years gone by. So let me know how it turns out.
