I have been thinking about going back to school a lot lately. I even went as far as to make a plan, and find financial aid, yada, yada, yada, the whole bit. I went to go sign up for the class I was planning on taking earlier this week to get my phlebotomy license/certificate... The class is being canceled Due to "lack of enrollment" The gal in the office told me I am the only person to express interest in this course in over a year Seriously? That really blows.... I was super jazzed about this class, after getting hubs on board too... My main goal is to be a paramedic. But out here, it's just too expensive and I need to work, so we're not as poor as we are now. So I've been seeking out shorter programs for certificates that are still in the medical field, but something doable right now. Well after that... I found a school that trains medical assistants. So I'm getting excited about this one, but not too excited because I don't want this to blow up in my face either They have an "entrance exam" scheduled for every Thursday at 1:00 So I am going to go take that. I think it's just the basic reading, writing, and simple math.. And then find out about costs, length of the program, all that good stuff. My husband is in the service, so I qualify for some new program that they have going on through militaryonesource.com I have $4,000 from them to use, and I have also applied for FAFSA. My application with them was already processed, I don't qualify for a Pell Grant, but they said there should be some other things that I am eligible for. So wish me luck! I really am hoping that this will not fall apart like my other plan. And hopefully, I should have a good sound job sometime soon.
