College

So, as some of you may be aware, I applied to the local college immediately after getting back from boot camp.


And, after much finagling, not only am I in, but they finally figured out the mess with all my credit hours - enough so I only have about 4 general ed classes left to take. Most of my major-specific classes didn't transfer, but that's okay, because a Computer Science bachelor's is surprisingly different than a Digital Media associate's. But it was worth all the pain and suffering yesterday of going down to the transfer office before work and speaking with the lady there - she got me 12 more hours, ones that knocked out most my gen ed stuff.

Still, it was annoying to learn that summer classes require a different application and a different finacial aide form, but it's probably for the best that I'm not going to be trying to do that and work at the same time, and since my job only turns out to be seasonal, I can concentrate fully on school come fall. I can probably finish in 6 semesters, if I can get the prereqs knocked out early on. So next semester my brother will be a junior there, dad will be... well, technically a senior, but with like 2 more semesters of work to do at his current pace, and I'll be like... halfway thru sophomore year with all my credits? I told mom she needs to go for her master's, so the college will own all of our souls, but that's not happening so far.

I just hope the financial aide comes thru. According to FAFSA's web site, I should be golden, but I've not gotten the formal offer from the school yet, so... ::crosses fingers::
