If you paid off your debt then can't that money now go toward saving for a house? Would the amount you are paying for rent be about what you pay on a mortgage anyway? There are first time buyer programs to help you buy. I would spend the time with the babes. They grow up so fast. IF working 1 semester would be enough to get you into a house then maybe it is worth it but I would see if you can get into a house now.
