    Its scares me more than giving birth to my 2 children.
    BUT
    I have to do it. I want the certification and pay increase to not only better myself , but my quaility of work.
    The extra money would be nice too.
    I just need to get $1500.00 together by November 1. I can do this.....
    I just keep doubting myself.

    it took me a bit to realize that going back to school was a good thing... I was scared to fail.. but it wasn't that bad at all and I wound up with a 3.6 GPA in the end ;D

    you can do this...

    talk to the school.. sometimes you can get them to let you make payments.. tell them your situation..

    Good Luck!!!

    I would like to become a professional coder through the American Academy of Professional Coders.

    I really need to do this as my Medical Assistant certification gets paid next to nothing and so does my vet tech....

    Good for you Angie!

    Will the school take a payment plan? I did all my schooling (so far) without student loans, GSU lets you pay 1/4 of your tuition per month, you just sign a paper saying you will, its that simple (well, cuz if you dont pay you dont get a degree, ha!).

    Also - look into credit for life experience programs. I wrote papers instead of taking about 7 classes. That was 22 credits! I can give you more info on what those programs require if you would like. Just shoot me a PM.

    Thanks for the encouragement!
    I talked to the administrator. If I enroll by Halloween they will work with me on payments. ;D
    This is a done deal now.
