One day a little over a year ago, I returned from class to see all of my possessions and money gone. My roommate who had owed me all of her half of the bills for three months disappeared and everything gone (with me left holding my ****). Now I stand after living off credit cards to survive and paying student loans and rent with the money of a store clerk. I've alleviated most of my debt, have been on time with loan repayment, and am BEGINNING to save up money to return. However, because I had to drop out in the middle of the semester, I owe my school $5k before I can return or apply anywhere else. Once I get that sum to them, Im confident I can return and soar...the problem is Im looking at about 7 years of saving before I can make that much to return?!?! How can I get my life back on track? I have bad credit from the harder times and no one to help me. What am I supposed to do? If anyone has a clue please fill me in. Thanks!

Hi my name is larry I too owe my school money> I completely know how you feel, you could just get two jobs and work your butt off then you could save that money over a short time. you could use the money from the second job just for the school bill. it is possible to save tha money in six to 7months that way. If school is your passion then follow it. it might sound challengeing but so is school. Think it will b like go n to school and workn you can do it just focus that what im doing and i,m sure we are not alone.
