Educational update.

Got my financial aid offer back from MSU. They've given me enough financial aid to cover tuition and fees and leave me about $9000 to live on for the year. It might be possible to finesse it, with part-time work.

However, I talked with Beaumont and University of Michigan and listed programs I'm thinking of attending, including not only MSU, but LCC, WCC, and OCC, and they said they cheerfully hire graduates from all of those programs. And the community colleges are *much* cheaper.

I'm going to talk to LCC on August 10th. I'm going to schedule appointments with the WCC and OCC nursing program advisors in the next day or so. Time to look at my options.
