MSJoe,

What exactly is the cost in dollars and cents for the amount of time the tuition cost is going to be on your lowest rate interest card? In the whole scheme of things it may not be that much, as long as you automatically mail the reimbursement in when you
receive rather than robbing Peter to pay Paul later.

No one will argue against the fact that increasing your education will increase your earning power. I started in the organization I'm in 15 years ago. I make approximately$5,000 to $10,000 more annually than some of my co-workers because I chose to go to night school.

Yes, I did incur some debt but paid it off as I went. And it became easier to do when I was making more money.

ShouldHave,

Hi Chris. Great name. I'm Crissy. Let me start with the school costs. Since I have not attended school in ten years and was not serious about it then, I wanted to start slow before entering a degree program. I enrolled in a Visual Basic class at UCLA. The class plus book is about $600 charged at 14.48%. I really want to take C in October for about the same arrangement.

Here's my new monkey wrench. I was laid off on Friday. My job is not going to reimburse me for the class. So, I can add VB to my resume (although I don't feel comfortable doing it entirely on my own even though I'm getting an A), but I am stuck with the entire amount.

Ms Joe
