    Great Post! I am currently double majoring for my A.A.S. in Medical Transcription and the second major in Medical Office Administration. I have slowed the pace of my classes since the birth of our two-year-old... but amazingly enough, I have been working within Medical Transcription for 2 years this August and last November I landed my own account with 3 retina surgeons in Hawaii. No middle man which equals more moolah!! [Most MTs work as Independent Contractors for a Contractor that works for the doctors, etc.]

    I am very blessed to contribute quite nicely to my family budget while working less than 20 hours a week and able to juggle my schedule to my liking! I absolutely LOVE my job!

    I am 43 credit hours into 65 needed... but at the part-time pace that I am taking classes locally via online classes, I will likely not finish before 2010.

    I went back to school in the Fall of 2006.

    OK, here we go...lol

    I have an A.S. in Science from Suffolk County Community College (NY).

    I am going to graduate in December of 2008 (FINALLY!) with my B.S in Geology and Marine Science from Stony Brook University, we used to call ourselves The State University of New York at Stony Brook, but we find this is easier!

    I'm contemplating a Master's in either Groundwater Hydrology or Geological Oceanography, but my brain hurts...LOL

    I have a BA in Psychology and a Masters in Social Work (earned 5/2007).
    I am contemplating pursuing my PhD in Educational Psychology but everytime I think about writing papers again, I put it off. I do plan to have it before I am 60, so I have some time .

    Received my AAB in Business Management last December. Phi Theta Kappa, Honors, everything- except a job.
    Alright, give it to me. I HATE accounting. It was the only class I got an A- in. I'll see if I can help. Blech! Debits, credits, revenue is a liability b.s. LOL
    Tell me what it is and I'll try to help. Hope it's not journalling transportation in and transportation out. I could never do that without the instructions by my side.
