I understand where your coming from with the whole education debt, my friends are also doing student loans all over and I just smirk at the debt they are getting themselves into. As far as saying a degree is just a degree, I dont see it that way, I think pursuing an AA is a great step in the right direction then going on from there. And as far as the Marines, i was in Delayed Entry Program, which the option is to be able to say no till the day before your shipdate. which i did a month in advance. I was very disappointed to have things not work out, but i told myself at the start I wouldnt join just for the sake of joining, i wanted a MOS that gave me certifications, which was the one i picked. Mechanical 1345 heavy equipment operator. anyway, thats no longer an option for at least a year, so now I want to get educated in investing. thank you.
