Yea know the feeling, I actually went back to school(Which I am currently in my 5th year of at this institution) at a school that actually doesnt have an audio program, go figure
But it has one of the better regarded Theatrical programs, and they highly reccomend me for audio work wherever because of my previous knowledge of engineering, so it evens out in my case, most people it probably wouldnt so much. The college and the referrals I have gotten from Faculty there are the reason I could get the job I currently have.
The other reason was my now wife going to college to teach, went to that one
Kinda narrows the possibilites.
But even working as much as I do while at college, I am expecting to be in a very similar situation when I get out, unfortuantly unlike you my wife will be making the more money between the two of us, and she is planning on teaching High School, if that gives you any clue how poor I am expecting to be
Thankfully the debt will be shared for both of us, not just on my side, so that will help some, most of my income will probably be going straight to paying off college loans.
