I'm on the path to being successful. Going to be graduating in June with a degree in Economics from a good school. I'm hoping that well put in a position to get a good job and start paying back my loans.
Going through school was not without its challenges. I spent 3 years in Junior College. Transferred intending to do Computer Science, then promptly got my ass kicked by school, and stumbled through my first year at University. Had to make it up in summer by borrow money from my folks, then barely was allowed to come back. Spent a quarter there, then got kicked out. Did summer session again, switched majors to Econ, and now I'm going to graduate.
I did it the hard and stupid way, but I'm glad I toughed it out I guess. Still thinking about going to a state school and pursuing Computer Science though.
