Hi I'm in my 30's and thinking about going back to college within the next year to year and a half.My youngest will start pre school in 2011 so I was going to start then so I don't have to worry about daycare...Anyway basically were do I start.Are community colleges good for a full degree or would I have to transfer to a university? Am I to old for a regular university?I'm not 18 anymore!!Lol...How would I be placed? I have been out of school for a long time..I would probally do awful on a placement test...
I know I want to better myself...I'm just scared and worried and I don't want to let thet keep me back from bettering my life and my kid's life.
How did you get started?How hard was it?How do you get grants and financial aid?Basically everything.. I know I could call up a community college and get alot of this info...I just wanted to hear it from other moms and your experiences about the process.Thanks for any help..

Good for you!!
Stay away from for-profit schools. They exist, by law, to make money for their owners/shareholders; education is not their priority. When I was in HR, I did not interview candidates from the for-profit schools.
Start with a community college; they will likely have many classes on line and the credits will easily transfer to a state university. Make an appointment with the school's financial aid office.
