Khollest Posted March 9, 2007 Share Posted March 9, 2007 Okay. Basic info about myself. Graduated Highschool in 2002. Started an Electrical Sciences Degree, I would have finished in fall 2005 but a hospital stay + insurance BS killed that degree despite only needing 9 general credits to seal it. Prior to that BS I was on the deans list every semester and the presidents list twice. Electrical Sciences Degree is basically program designed to train the next generation electrician. Trained in electronics, several programming languages, automation as well as all the standard electrician type stuff (240, volts, amps, I, etc..) The catch is I don’t particullarly want to work in the field. So, I was in a pickle, go get a job based on the incomplete schooling I have or make a run for it. Well, I was practically already accepted into the Minneapolis Union (the third hardest to get into nationally, MN collectively). I decided to make a move for another degree. I enrolled for a full Electrical Engineering program. Semester one went well but because of my previous BS, I had been placed on financial aid probation. Meaning I needed to complete 100% of the credits to keep the aid from the state which I NEED to continue college. Flash to now, I slipped in my chem course partially due to depression, health crap and a sh*tty lab schedule posting. I am more or less guaranteed to fail and/or drop out. Either way, I lose my financial aid from now on. I don’t want to give up but I don’t really see any options available. Bills continue to accrue, I could in theory, file for bankruptcy but the downfall of that is it screws your credit rating, I am only 22 and have a rating over 770 and don’t want to lose that. **Lamenting** So, any questions, ideas or suggestions just ask… Quote Link to comment
