First, call me Rick!
The first college was expensive so I transferred to another college. I had been commuting 45 miles west each day; the new college was 20 miles north east. For a semester, I worked part time and attended both schools. I really tried to stay on track to graduate in four years, yet I ended up wearing myself out so much that I got tonsilitis four times in six weeks.
I survived (obviously! and still have my tonsils) and began attending that second school exclusively in January. That lasted a year or so, until I again ran out of money. Fortunately a new state university had opened and I was able to attend at a much lower cost. And wouldn't you know it, it was the best of the three schools!
I attended college for two and a half years before I had to go part time, and work full time. After just over 6 years, I graduated. I had started out going for a degree in accounting yet working during the day, when those classes were offered, required I change and get my BA in Business Administration. I ended up with a double minor - Accounting and the other was in Human Behavior.
Four years later, while living in southern California, I attended Pepperdine University. Three years later I received my MBA degree.
Sound good? Well, it was anything but easy, yet I did learn plenty. I learned what it meant to have to pay your way. I learned also that those who could have their way paid through college and get their Master's degree were usually pretty clueless as to what "normal" workers endured. I don't mean to use the word clueless in a derogatory manner - it simply is the truth. I found, after getting my degree(s), I often ended up educating those more fortunate than most. In most cases, their response was "I didn't know...".
Due to my background, I have many opinions regarding the work place and education, yet I won't get on my soapbox.
