    This old fart is going to go back to school. I have applied to be a vet tec. Waiten on finacel aid to come in to see how much it is going to cost me to go. And if you guess it I am planning on what they call large animals. Going to learn all I can mostly because I do not want to loose anymore babies. Also need another sorce of income comen in the house. Look us old folks can learn too. Hope for the best for me cause I am going to need it.

    I am not sure how old you are - but I am 31 and am working towards my bachelors right now. I also work at a 2 year college here in Idaho in Advising Services and have experience with Financial Aid!!! I have worked in the colleges for 3 1/2 years total. I love it, and I LOVE working with the "non-traditional" students.

    Make sure that you ask about FOUNDATION scholarships at the school that you are attending and also check out fastwebs.com I know alot of students that have received scholarships from this website!

    What school are you going to be attending? There is an awesome AVMA Vet Tech program through a community college in Texas that you stay where you are at (PA) and work inside a vet clinic and do your work there supervised by a licensed vet or vet tech.

    Anyway, enough rambling - if you have ANY questions, please feel free to ask me~

    I have students who are just starting who come into my office who are 60 + 70 years old. So don't worry.

    My DH turned 40 this year and I am trying to convince him to start school just in case he gets hurt at work so that he has a fall back - not to mention - while I work at the college, his tuition is 1/2 price!!!
