Good job. I've considered an MBA, but just haven't figured out when I would do it!

Congrats sir. It was rough for me as well, doing the same you did, but without the kids at least. It's rough to be the 30 year old man in a room full of 20 year old kids. If you ever get to michigan look me up and you get a drink and a pull in some calm water.

Amen to that. Not to mention at this point I've just about lost it with some of the work ethic. Just completed our final "group" research paper last week which was 30 pages each. 1 kid turned in 3 pages and another we kicked out of the book. We had to cover the additional 57 pages between 2 of us. Still praying that goes through so all of this works out.

Pumped to see others doing the same. To be honest I screwed off in college and chased the almighty dollar. It was a blast to have pockets full of cash living in a college town but up until now its been a shameful subject. Makes me feel alot better.

Thanks for all the love

Congrats, I only had a job and wife as I finished up my last year of school.

Well, I had the job the whole time but the wife...............since we are still married, I'll say that she was a worthy distraction.
