    I have a plan this school year, to take out federal student loans, collect whatever grants and scholarships I can, and handle the remaining expenses with a private student loan from who I bank with (Wells Fargo). Then, consolidate those loans, and throw 90%-100% of my income at it automatically for the whole school year.

    All things considered, dorm, declining meal balance plan, tuition, and books. I’m looking at total expenditures amounting to over $18,000 USD
    I earn approx $15,000 USD per year at my current job. Living on campus would be cheaper for me than to continue staying in my own apartment.

    I figured that if I have things like living expenses already covered by the loans (food, dorm), and I only get like $50 for myself out of my paycheck, and the remainder of the money gets funneled at the debt… that would put my credit in a good spot to repeat the process for the next school year.

    In turn, if I do this all 4 years, and get my Bachelors in Biology, Id only end up owing about $16,000 after 4 years instead of nearly $100,000 like many students.

    The only thing Id need a little cash for, is transportation (I use my bicycle, and public transportation… car insurance is too expensive), and money for laundry, and a little pocket change to go to the movies with some friends on occasion. Thats why I would want about $50 from my paycheck or so.

    I think this plan can work, and I’d like any helpful input that everyone might have.

    Long-term, I intend to go to medical school and study to be a doctor (GP and cardiologist). I’m not interested in money. I want to do this, because I seriously believe that our government will NOT take the necessary steps to save itself from the “economic globalization efforts” that threaten the U.S. Dollar as our global reserve currency. I sincerely believe that we will find ourselves under the banner of the “Bancor” one day.
    If that happens, things are going to change in the U.S. I believe the welfare aspect of our country will be totally shot. No more “helpful handouts” for Medicare, Medicaid, etc.

    So I want to be a doctor in order to VOLUNTEER to help the population when those hard times come. People understand that doctors should be paid, even if they are so poor that all they can afford is to bake you a cake and give you their love.

    I’m attending Nova Southeastern University. Though I am considering going to a UNCF (United ***** College Fund(ed)) school (Bethune-Cookman?), after I finish my first year at NSU, to get access to more scholarships.

    I plan to get married. My girlfriend is still living with her parents in Richmond, VA. So maybe not till I complete my Bio major.

    Anyway, does anyone have any advice on my plan?
    To answer Mr. Buresh:

    Uh, thanks. I’m not actually in an “adverse” situation. I’m just looking for a few quick 2nd and 3rd opinions on my plan, and any extra ideas if someone has any.

    There is such a pressure in today’s society to work. For everyone to work. And yet, women keep complaining that they are not offered the same level of compensation for the jobs that they are able to get, or that they aren’t taken seriously when applying for higher paying jobs that men usually hold.

    I am a stay at home mom, and a wife of 2 years. I want to spend every moment of my life taking care of my family, making sure that my husband is stress-free, that our home is taken care of, and that my children are brought up knowing that family comes first. I would like to keep my life this way, but I feel the pressure to work, because even with a degree, my husband is not able to make enough money to keep our family afloat. He works 40+ hours a week and yet we are below the poverty level, unable to buy a house, unable to buy a vehicle. We don’t own cell phones because our rent is nearly 80% of what he makes in a month.

    I sometimes feel like it is because of the women who want gender equality in the workplace, that are causing these hard times. I was looking at the government standards for affordable living expenses and they are all based on households where 2 adults are working full time jobs (40+ hours per week). What happened to the era where a household could be effectively and comfortably run on a single working adult, working a 9-5 job?

    I feel like the people who fight for gender equality in the workplace are all these feminist who want to be able to support themselves, by themselves, meaning, without a husband or significant other. These women do not generally have children. It feels like women being selfish to me.

    As a mother and wife who wants to be able to take care of my house and family, I feel that feminist and people fighting for gender equality in the workplace and ruining a way of life and increasing financial stress in the home. Kids are being left to stay at home alone for extended periods because both parents are having to work. People are eating fast food more often because there is no one to cook a home-cooked meal. Clutter and messes are a common thing found in houses because people are not there to clean up. People wear dirty laundry because of no time to do the laundry. There is emotional and mental illnesses that are being brought on by people being forced to work extreme hours without a comfortable home to come back to.

    Men, wouldn’t you love to be able to come home after a day at work, sit back in a comfy chair that is yours alone, be handed a beer (or beverage of your choice) by the person who stayed at your house, cooked, cleaned and took care of all the errands? Be told 30 minutes later that a full on meal was prepared (one that in today’s society would seem like a holiday special meal).

    Of course telling women they cannot work anymore is not going to solve everything immediately or by itself. Women outnumber men in the workforce these days. And there are more men unemployed than women.

    If women didn’t work, the cost of living would decrease because the national average for income levels would decrease. According to the government, comfortable housing is supposed to cost 30% of your gross income. As is, rent and mortgages generally cost around 60-70% of the combined gross income of 2 working adults in a household.

    NOW, I wanted to add one more thing, I am not saying that all women should just give up working, what I am really saying that is that, if the cost of living and prices of items were based on households where only a single person worked full time (or 2 people worked part-time), I believe the lifestyles in America would be better. There would be less stressed out people, less “depression”, less children that feel neglected. People would be able to pay off student loans and get out of debt in a reasonable manner, making going to college a realistic life plan again. Local business owners would be able to invest more money into their businesses and other local businesses and take the market back from the large retail and manufacturers.

    Where has the American Dream gone?

    A Monday-Friday 9a.m.-5p.m. job, Sundays for church. Friday night board game nights at the dinner table. A matine movie day on Saturday mornings. Dinner parties for holidays where the women gossip and the men watch foodball in a “mancave”. Children who enjoy playing outside and coming in to handmade lunch and dinner, not microwaveable “hotpockets”. A house with a yard and a fence, not a cramped apartment with no view.
    And a dog that everyone adores.

    I’m currently a sophomore in high school. Last year I had a 3.3 GPA (ya that’ll probably bring me down a bit. Wasn’t too concentrated on my studies last year, but this year I definitely will be). I’ve been playing tennis for 3 years. Been playing piano for 4. I volunteer at a senior residence center in my community just about every week. No rank in any clubs, but I do belong to Key Club. During first quarter this year I had a 4.0 GPA. Plan on taking AP’s starting next year. All honors except global history and 3A math. Didn’t do too good on the PSAT’s, got a 175 this year, but 99 percentile in math (hopefully I’ll do much better on the SAT). English is my second language.

    I’m still a freshman in high school and I was wondering what the top best schools are for an undergraduate who wants to become a doctor. I heard from some people that it doesn’t really matter, you just have to do well on the MCAT. Is it true? If so, what’s a good school that will prepare me well for the MCAT? Thanks in advance!

  6. I want to train to become a chartered accountant.

    Which set of professional exams should I take, ACCA or ICAEW?

    Many can confirm that the swine flu was man made, and now many countries such as England and Canada are making students take 4 vaccine shots this fall! No one really knows what is in most of those shots.
    Can this be another reason for Obama to impletement his Nazi health care plan where the governemnt decides who lives and who dies like Hitler did? If you think Im crazy go ahead and goggle some of these topics. Also, read some quotes from your liberal globalist and tell me that their not crazy!

    “We require a central organizing principle – one agreed to voluntarily.

    “Global Sustainability requires the deliberate quest of poverty, reduced resource consumption and set levels of mortality control.” – Professor Maurice King

    I am now 16 and i just started college in UK and i’ll be studying Performing Arts there for 2 more years.I am NOT an english citizen because i only moved to UK about 6 years ago.I’m actually Lithuanian/Russian (Lithuanian on my passport).I really want to move to either US or Canada once i finish college which will be in 2014.Because it’s such a big and hard decision,i want to start preparing now and get as much info as i can.I want to become an actress (don’t start calling me a ‘wannabe’ or say ‘you never gonna make it’) please respect my decision.I know it’s hard and that it will be even harder later on but im ready for it and im not gonna give up on something that i’ve been doing for 11 years now.I absolutely love both Canada AND US and it’s really hard to decide which one i should research even more.I like Canada because of it’s nature.If i do try to move there then i would aim for Toronto. It’s a big city,there’s lots of acting opportunities there for me (im not saying that it’s ONLY in Toronto).I also like US because well…IT’S US! If i tried to move THERE, then i would aim for New York.In my opinion New York is a city for actors. I know that California is the place where people usually move to if they want to become actors,singers etc.And if i could,i would move there too but…to be honest im not really sure WHERE to move.Im young and i haven’t yet experienced the financial part of life so i would want to live in a place/city that wouldn’t be EXTREMELY expensive but i do need it to be pretty big so that i could go to auditions etc.So i need your help!Which cities do you think would be good for someone like me?
    The hardest part of moving to both US or Canada is visas.How can i get a Visa?What type of Visa would i need?I want to hopefully work in the country that im gonna move to and start a life there.I understand that i won’t be able to see my family but to be honest i only have my dad and he doesn’t even care about that so it’s all good.I will miss him but it’s my life and i want to make my own decisions and if i have a chance to visit him then i WILL.Please be more specific on Visas because i know a few of those websites but i need it to be more specific. And also,what would be the best time to apply for one?A year before moving there? Or a few months before moving there? What would be the easiest way for me to immigrate to either US or Canada?I understand that nothing will be easy but i want to know the less complicated way of moving there.
    Also – do you HAVE to speak French when living in Canada?Because i don’t speak French but if it’s needed then i thought – IF i move to Canada,i could apply to a some college and i could study French there (because then i could probably get a student visa).
    I have a lot of questions but these are just a few;
    1.Where would it be cheaper to live?I know it depends on the city and my job etc. but i want to see your opinion.I don’t need a big place to live. As long as i’ll have a warm bed ,bathroom and a roof under my head then i will be VERY happy.
    2.How much money do you think i should have with me when moving to one of the countries i’ve mentioned?(in English pounds please)
    And how much do you think i’ll have to spend on Visas,plane tickets etc.?
    3.How to even START planning the whole trip?How would you find a job there,a place to live etc.
    4.Im a bit nervous about moving out and living on my own without having anybody there for me just in case something happens. Because my family and relatives all live in Europe and my godparents live in US but i don’t know where because i haven’t spoke or have any contact with them for the last 6 years. I THINK they live in New York but im not sure. So the questions is – could i find someone or a group of people who are moving to either US or Canada as well and we could meet up before the flight and move to one of the countries together and maybe even rent an apartment together and help each other etc. You know what i mean? Basically not moving on my own. Could i find people like that somehow or am i just crazy to even think about that?
    5.What to take with me while moving there?I don’t really want to start thinking what to take with me because i haven’t even planned anything and who knows? Maybe i’ll fail and not even more there! But just in case! I want to take a lot of clothes obviously because i don’t want to spend lot of money once i arrive there.At least not until i’ve settled down and until i start understanding the prices there.So basically i want to be prepared for all types of weather.What would you take if you were an 18 year old girl?Also what about things like toiletries ,books, pillows and bed sheets etc. What are the DO’s and DON’T’s of packing when moving to the other side of the world?

    My email is (if you have more info)
