I spent 4 and 1/2 years at Indiana University of Pa getting my bachelors degree. Now I'm going back to get an associates degree so I can teach.

I went to school to be a teacher too! Hard work! I taught one year and HATED it! :( I was teaching kindergarten at a private school, too many politics at a private school. I should have worked at a public school. I now work for UCSB. Much better than working with the little ones, I actually have patience for my OWN kids when I get home! :)

It took me 4 long years to get my degree but it was very much worth it. I am glad I went to college right out of high school otherwise I may not have went at all.

I hear ya! It's easy to get involved in work and not ever go back to studying!

Hey all that matters is that your going, it's hard once you have kids too! I got my bachelors when my daughter was 2.5 and I was 5 weeks preggers with my second! My husband worked his tail off while I went to school full time taking anywhere between 16-21 units at a time! It's worth it though!

It's never too late, there's lots of grant and loans you could apply for too!

I've heard that leaving college after only 4 years is like leaving a party at 10 o'clock. So... I don't think it really matters....

Took me 4 long years but what an experience! I went to Barnard College at Columbia University and studied Middle Eastern Languages and Cultures.
