This year we are getting a descent refund. At first we talked about getting me a new car. The car I have now is a six cylinder but is only running on five cylinders. I have also started looking into massage therapy school. I found a school where we live but they dont accept financial aid. The program start the middle of Feb. And I will graduate by august. As if right now we do recieve a small amount of help from PA. Me doing the massage therapy (especially if I do it from home) will help us get off it faster.


So Here is my dilemma. Would you use this years refund to pay tuition and put off getting a new (used) car or get the car this year and wait until next year to pay tuition? These ate both big decisions and I have to make sure I not only do whats best for me but for my 3 little ones. I need some outside input on this situation. Please if you dont have anything nice to stay do not comment. Tia

Schools that do not accept financial aid are usually not accredited. That would be a huge red flag and I wouldnt do that. I do think getting an eduacation and bettering yourself is more important than a car.

Its a private local school. They have no affiliation with the community or state college. They are working on setting everything up to be connected with fafsa and being able to recieve though. But that wont get finished until end of this year beginning of next.



They offer nothing but massage therapy like a beauty school and hair stylist and such.

Okay, but are they regionally accreditated? That is what you need to ask. If not it is a waste of time and money. Those credits will never transfer, and you wont be able to further your education if you want to later
