I am new and this is my first post. Allow me to introduce myself and then ask my question.
I am a loan officer in NC and currently reside in SC. I have registered for York Tech community college FT (12hrs) and will start Feb 8th. I am excited!
I have been a mortgage guy for 6yrs and although very good when I want to be and have had very good financial success over the 6yrs... the slow economy and housing market has me desiring education.
I have always done well in Sales but sales does not require education and does not use too much of it either. If you are personable and have a natural financial mind you will do well.
Without education, Sales will always be the jobs I can/will land.
ok....So my question is as follows: I have recieved lottery money which looks like it pays about 1/2 of the tuition. I have also applyed for the "Stafford" federal loan and have been told that an independent student can qualify for up to $9500 per Semester.
This has me elated and being burnt from 10yrs of Sales work.... if I can go to school FT and even have a little income from student loans..... this sounds/seems like heaven to me!!!
Please reply and help educate me on my thoughts and outlook on Student loans.
