Associates in electronics, thanks in part to the Air Force. Also have a BS in finance (I thank the GI Bill for paying for that degree). I may pursue an MBA later because my company will foot the bill. They will also pay for me to become a CFP, if I so choose. Free education is nice.

Why don't you just go straight for RN, that's what my wife is in school for. Lot of work but she will be making major $ once she is done.

I dropped out once, and decided being a highschool dropout working for a measly $6.50 an hour was for the birds, so I decided to go back and graduate. hopefully graduating next year.

graduated highschool with honors, and need to work for a year to get into university. Meh, I'm only 17 so I guess I have some time to work things out.

I'm on my final stretch to earning my BA in Biochemistry and Molecular/Cellular Biology and Math minor at a university. I'm planning to study for the MCAT over the summer and take the exam next fall.

Sounds like what I was doing... until my sophmore year. I was a Biology major, Environmental Chem major, Geology minor (streams and hydrology focus). Junior and Senior years I ended up going more into Psyc and Business along with Ecological Biology to get me going more towards Organizational Behavior for which I'm attempting to get my PhD at the University of Michigan.
