I'm going back to school in 20 days!!! :) :)

I am so excited!! I heard back from Tiffin University today! Financial aid came back TOTALLY in my favor and I am enrolled full-time! I completed my Associate of Arts degree at Columbus State Community College this Spring and took the summer off.

The original plan was to complete an additional associate's degree, but I ran out of financial aid.  The amount of aid is less for a 2-year degree.  I was super bummed, but decided to look into 4-year schools as a transfer student in the adult programs.  My mother completed her degree this way and it's such a convenience.  I looked into 3 different universities and Tiffin was my number 1.

The degree is a Bachelor's of Business Administration with a concentration in Healthcare Administration.  It's perfect.  It's exactly what I want to do.  I have so many medical credits under my belt and I didn't want them to go to waste.  The best part about Tiffin is that I get to complete my degree ONLINE AT HOME!! I'm about 5 months pregnant, so this is MAJOR! I will be able to stay home with the kiddos and not have to worry about working.  This is awesome!! I'll be able to complete the degree in about 2 years.  I'm taking 4 classes at a time each semester, 2 semesters a year.  I'll have the summers off (assuming we can afford it, otherwise I may go full time during the summer too).

Such a relief.  I've been incredibly nervous, stressed, and worried the past few weeks about all of this and feels GREAT to have a plan!!


  1. Congratulation! I am so happy for you :)

  2. Planning really does make a guge different I am so proud of you that you go to school and yet are a mom inspiring!

    1. Thanks, Ashlee! I'm doing the best I can to provide for my family, be an awesome mom and work toward my own career goals. It is difficult balance in life, but it can be done!
