Fangorn Posted Saturday at 05:08 AM Share Posted Saturday at 05:08 AM If you don't want to read the background, you can just answer the main question. I'm just curious to hear from people who have already made that decision and seen how it panned out. I'll put more background below though for anyone who does want it. I've decided I definitely don't want to do in-person college, but I recently was looking into online college and found one that's relatively inexpensive. It's about 1/4th of what the college my sister went to cost. They also say on the website that you can set your own schedule, which would be good for me, since I want to be able to have a job while I'm in college. I think I could get most of it covered by scholarships, but I'm not sure exactly how much I could get covered. I'm still not sure if it's worth it though. Part of that is because even if it was mostly covered, I'd likely still have some loans. But the main reason is that it would take up four years of my life. I want to have kids soon (I'm younger than most people are when they have kids, but I'm still hoping to in the next few years), but I assume if I was in college, I'd have to wait until I was done with it before having kids. But at the same time, I want to be able to make enough money to support kids, and that's hard to do without college. I'm hoping to work from home, and it seems like a lot of those jobs require a degree. I've recently been doing proofreading and editing, and I think that would be a good full-time job for me, but I'm not sure if that's realistic without a degree.
