    Re: Starting College or Going Back

    Congrats, Missy!

    I hear ya on the essay writing, after a while it gets really...ACK (and I usually enjoy writing, lol) because you're not just writing to get a decent grade...you're writing to get accepted into a school, scholarship, or grant so the pressure is on. And while you're writing you're constantly wondering if it's interesting enough, the tightrope between how much personality to show while still being professional, do you "stand out" enough, etc.

    What worked for me was preparing early. I'd already written several outlines (as well as just jotting down random thoughts here and there) in preparation for my statement of purpose, and that helped tremendously when I finally started writing.

    4.0 last semester, and that's even with that horrible Medical Transcription class that I struggled with all semester!

    Re: Starting College or Going Back

    I actually dropped my classes until Fall, as Chemistry was going to mess up my 4.0. I never had Chem in high school or my first go round of college , so was too far behind to do any good. I've somehow got to find someone to tutor me during the last half of July and August so I'll be prepared next time.
    Good job, Little Bit!

    I might be going back to school! I got accepted to a Graduate program! It is far away and money will be an obstacle with the relocation and all. I think there is a 50% chance I could be headed back to the books this fall!

    Re: Starting College or Going Back

    I really want to go back to school but I can't afford it yet. I graduated from high school in 06 and with my Bachlors from UNF last May.

    In order for Publix to help with tuition reemburshment I have to stay with them for at least another two years. I work two overnights and work the nights on the weekends for them. I dispatch the truck drivers and it isn't what I dreamt of doing after gradaution but it's a job.

    Re: Starting College or Going Back

    Started the paperwork today to try to get back in school this fall. I had to quit at the end of March 2010 due to personal reasons. As it looks like museum work is a pipe dream, am switching to education. High school history.

    myrosiedog, how exciting! I imagine you'd make a great history teacher. Hope things work out well for you.
