Just curious which "title" is why you come and read in here.  wink1.gif

 

 

 

 

 

*Edit*  I accidently put the "I am a student" choice as the poll subject. Whoops! Just choose "other" instead.

I guess technically I'm both, but I'm working on my Master's Degree super slowly so I'm not sure it counts.  Right now I work and take one class a semester.  It'll take me forever to finish, but taking it so slowly means I don't get overwhelmed.

Dangit I swear I had put a "I am a student only" choice! Argh! Oh wait I put it in the subject instead of a choice line. OOPS !!!   blush.gif

 

I guess if you are a student and not working pick "other".

 

 

Sorry!!!

I noticed the survey above only gave the choice of either studying or working.  I am doing both.  I work 1/2 time and study 1/2 time. I do study from home though (online masters program).

I work f/t right now, but will be going back to university within the next couple years. Then, I'll do a combo of work and school for a few years, then a few years of f/t school (clinical placement), then back to work.

I work (anywhere from part-time to overtime!) and go to school one class per semester toward a certificate.

I'm working full-time and going to school part-time. I was registered for 12 credits this semester, but dropped two classes. I was overwhelmed. This is the first time I have worked full-time after being a SAHM for a decade. I couldn't hang doing both full-time with four kids and a husband... I do have plans to take a full load next semester, though, but they will be easier classes and I will be more into the swing at things with my job (I only started working there in May).

I work full-time, but for a long time before that I worked half-time and was a student. :)

I was looking around in here because I WANT to go back to school!  I could stop working if I had a plan!  Anyhow, back to browsing - I want to see how other moms manage to get back into school!

I am a full-time student, but I also clean house and run errands for two disabled ladies and I'm the "secretary" for my Dh and roommates' moving/junk removal business. So, I technically work, but I am my own boss. :)
