Many thank yous! and correct!

although I'd still have to foot the bill up front and then I get it reimbursed at the end of the semester if I pass classes.....or maybe they pay it up front and I have to re-pay it immediately if I dont pass classes? not sure how that part of the policy works yet I'll have to look.

Would be gravy to just get huge lump sum check at the end of the semester to pay for next semester and then get that semester paid and another large lump sum back at the end of that semester plus my tax returns.......between the 2 that'd be almost a down payment on a house.

6 of 1 half dozen of the other.
If I could've gone to school full time interest free I would've already been done too and making more than I make now to pay it off quicker.

Does the BMW count? other than that, nope. No student loans, no debt, own the subaru and CBR outright as well.

I still have $55k in loans, and have been paying on them for 4 years. Oh, and they are at 6.9 and 7.5%. Screw the government, and screw all you guys with no loans! I'd be driving a B8 S4 if I didn't have those damn things.

Also interesting, and maybe Klod idea?

For $15,000, What Sorcery Is This?

He has been paying out of his pocket every semester vs not worrying about it till entering real world.

also going to spend this morning showing how work can justify paying for my tuition this semester, aka "why you should give me tuition reimbursement."
i do 4 11hr shifts and 1 8hr shift. half time dont get lunch break depending on how busy we are?

i got school to pay off too and i havent even finished it. did owe $15-20k? pay like $180 a month

cant wait till tax returns either next february, been told i could get close to $6-7k. that will pay off the focus finally and nice vacation to florida. shelter paid for already, thank you mum.

Anyone heard rumors about the 2.3L ecoboost for the next mustang? And possibly a Focus RS?

Yup

Also ready about it in a magazine. 90% sure 2.3 Turbo Mustang is a go for 2015 (based off of convo I over heard at Ford).. and RS is possibly in the works as well. I dunno.

Also just realized that higher mileage E46 323i's are around the $5k area. Might try and pick one of those up...
