    Let me start by saying that I don't really want a "yes" answer on this (to the am I crazy question, that is). I'm kinda just looking for encouragement and practical advice from mamas who have been there. So, I was all set to graduate next year (bs in econ), when all of a sudden I decided that I...

    I'd love to be able to make some new friends, I have virtually no support network here. But I'm about to turn 32, and am a full-time student at a local community college, where most of the other students are either retired or just out of high school. There does seem to be single moms sort of...

    I'm due next Monday (April 23) & I have been thinking about going back to school on a part-time basis. I only want to take 1 or 2 classes this fall & it will be classes that meet once or twice a week. (More than likely they'll be just regular ol' English 111 & some kind of Math since I'm fresh...

    I haven't had any science in many years, and only minimal Algebra, but my college is letting me into an Anatomy & Physiology class this summer. I'm doing some math and science review via my Health Occupations Test study guide and am supposed to begin the class in May. This will allow me to apply...

    Hi everyone! I am new to the forum and conducting a survey about Infant Mortality in the United States as part of my thesis. Infant mortality is a very serious issue in the United States especially with the disparity that exists amongst different races. The link to my survey is below and it...

    I'm researching some options and I'd really love any advice/knowledge from people who make it work by being full time students. Did you get a lot of grants? How do you cover all of your COL? Do you have your own apartment? Does your school have family housing? I guess, where does one start to...

    Hi, I really need help editing an essay for a scholarship I am applying to. I had to move (long story) and will be paying out of state tuition for nursing school this fall. However the school charges over 20K for out of state students! I am hoping to get several scholarships to cover my tuition...

    I am a sahm but considering going back to school for speech pathology. I think it seems like a great career. But I am very intimidated by the idea of going back to school. It took me seven years to get my BA because I had no financial help from my parents and I was working full time. Now I...

    Hello! I need some advice: I'm job hunting for a student practicum position for the summer (in public health inspection). I am limited to two health units, at least for this summer, because my son has his daycare here. Next summer I graduate and will move if necessary for a full time...

    When my son was born, I didn't have a lot of resources, and I worked as a carhop. The only option I saw was to feed my babe formula while I was away. Luckily, this worked out really well and we went on to breastfeed til his 5th birthday. Now I work as a massage therapist in a chiropractor's...

    I am so stressed out from school I can not seem to be present when I am with my children. I swore I would quit school if it got too hard on my family. I have cried every day since Saturday when I had class. I don't know how I am going to get through 4 more Clinical days with the meanest...

    I am taking an online course right now and I am having trouble getting it done and would like to hear how others arrange their time. I am supposed to start graduate studies in the fall which will be a lot more intensive that what I am doing right now and i can't seem to manage this one. My plan...

    Hi Everyone, G-d willing I will start my PhD in the fall, and I was wondering if I should keep my 18M now, then 2 years old in a full time or part time daycare. During my first year, I will have to take 4 courses, TA, plan my field work and apply for grants. I am also her primary caregiver and...

    So this fall I hope to start a BSN program. I haven't heard from admissions yet, but I'm planiing for the best! To take the program there are two courses that are not considered nursing courses but must be completed by the start of the program. So I am considering taking pathophysiology and...

    The university I am hoping to attend this fall for a BSN program has on campus apartments for families. They are just down the street from the campus child care and pre school. There are several complexes ranging from 550 per month to 650 which is way cheaper than off campus housing! Each...

    I really need help. DS is 6 months old and I am in the worst shape of my life, except for my giant biceps from having a 20lb baby who loves being walked/rocked to sleep :) Here's my situation: I work M-F 8-4 and DH cares for DS while I'm gone. When I come home, we switch off and he goes to...

    I will be starting graduate school in the fall. My plan was to do grad school at the same place I did my undergrad. My MA would be in Written Communication, Professional Writing. We currently live a block from campus, and there is a great Kindergarten nearby for my DD to go to. However, DD's...

    I have a 9 month old DS. I work full-time. Partly because I have to for my family to make ends meet. But also because I need to work outside the home for my sanity. I'm interested in some point at going back to school to get a master's in social work. If you had the ability to plan it out...
