Scheduling and time management are extremely important. A lot of reminding yourself that no mattet how hard there's a reason you're doing it.

Yep.  Forty hours and online classes.  Just finished a session and am waiting for grades.  Provided I pass the next thirteen courses I will graduate with my BS next November.  Most days I am sure I'm insane lol!

I work 50 hours a week from home, plus a second job 2 nights a week. I just enrolled this quarter for a 3 credit online class. I decided to start small and get my feel wet before jumping in to a lot of classes, but I hope to take around 10 each quarter if it works out. I hope I can find a good balance for everything.

Good luck.

I have taken a class here and there. but will most likely start on regular basis this summer, I am far from excited for the first time ever about going to school, but this is a "got to" degree not as much "want to" going to be a long 3 years, I suppose.

But I am super happy for you!! Enjoy, school can be exciting!

I'm working on an EdD while working full time. Obtained many MBA while working a full time job and two part time ones. BS while working full time as a single mom.

Study while the kids are in bed, or sit at the table while they do their homework and do yours. I have lots of tips and tricks. Pm if you want.
