if that got to you then you're still not ready for real life.

good luck tho.

I have to agree with syncro here. The reason is simple: Most people work along similar lines if they have a family and other responsibilites - and I am not talking about having a night out, drinking with friends, but about some serious commitments.

A friend of mine is working 45-50 hours a week minimum, is a father of a small child, married - and goes to a school three times a week (tuesday and thursday nights, saturday mornings) to get a better degree in his field (car suspension), gets up at 4:45 five days a week, and still enjoys his life.

If working hard puts you off, you should find out what it is that you want out of your life?

Success does not come easy, and nobody sees what you put in in order to be successful and happy. But hard work will eventually pay off if planned properly.

It is worth differentiating the work though. Rewarding work and keeping busy (ie, kids, or truly liking/appreciating school) is much different then mindless boring work. Give me 60 hours of rewarding work over 30-40 hours of mindless dribble any week.

Mindless/unrewarding work also tends to be more depressing when you are doing it a lot.

If it doesn't work out at BCIT. There is always another option.

Just a heads up regarding BCIT. I have been there LOTS for trade programs. Anyway I left high school in grade 11, family life was not good etc. I was working to pay rent at 16 years old and have been working ever since. The first time I tried to get into BCIT I was worried because I did not have my grade 12. They simply said that for the program I was taking (auto mechanic certification full time), I had to be over the age of 21 if I did not have my grade 12. They made me write an equivelancy exam which I passed and the rest is history. You might be OK without having the 30 credits.
As for the rest of whats going on in your life? Man up, you dont have herpes. Shit could be worse.

Do a little more of that and you'll start feeling better.

Life is what you make it. Ultimately you are the one in control and its up to you to decide what's best for you. Don't worry about not having 30 credits to get in. It's better to apply and not get in than it would be to not try at all and wonder "what if?".

Being an agoraphobic adrenaline junkie would be pretty convenient, because you could get your rush from just going to the store to get some milk instead of having to jump off a mountain or out of an airplane.

Well I need to upgrade my grades first since you need minimum prerequisites. I'm also applying at 4 different schools, and their stipulation is the same. I'm hoping bcit though. 3 years is nice, and I'd take the risk of student loans and quitting my job.

By the summer I should have everything done, If I get in by jan 2012. I'll work all of the winter, save up enough cash, quit and pull out student loans and focus on school.

you're 24 eh?

if i'm correct, once you're 25, you qualify as a "mature student" and anything high school related is out the window.

clean slate so to speak

someone correct me if i'm wrong

i think it varies between institutions… and i dont think its a totally clean slate. IM(limited) experience, the school wanted to see what you'd been doing in that time… i.e. was there a particular reason why you were going to school 'later' in life. I think they wanted to see that in lieu of formal education, the time spent out of school was in some way productive.

This. When Meg applied to do her masters at UBC, they wanted everything, transcripts of high school, Uni, special certifications she taken, they also wanted an essay about what she had achieved so far in her career, why she wanted to go back to school 12 years after graduating and what she felt a masters degree would do to help further her career path.
