For those of you that are currently attending or have gone back to school after having kids, how did you handle the transition? I've been out since 2004 so I'm kinda freaking out lol. I start Jan 10th and am soooo excited and nervous :P

  • I just graduated in may and it was the best decision to go back when I did and now I have a fulltime job and am very happy . it's alot of sacrifice and hard work but it's so worth it in the end. if you have a good support system is important. your children will be very proud of mom when you complete it. congrats and good luck.

  • I had been out for 10 years when I went back for a 2nd degree. I was so scared that I wasn't going to remember things or that I was going to be very out of place. I ended up graduating with a 4.0. You can do this!

  • It isn't as bad as you think. I go part time now and I love it. I have had a couple of teachers that were younger than me, but other than that it was actually pretty cool being back in school. Juggling school and work and the kids just takes organization. Congrats!

  • congrats and good luck! I did full time college while in a part time job and my DD was a infant. It was hard at first but it got easier.
