In 2009, when I am 31 years old and my kids are 10, 9, and 6, I plan on going to college. My plan is to take my time doing this, so I can pay my way through community college and just finance the state college part. I am shooting to be done in about 8 years, right when my youngest starts middle school. But, after reading the FAFSA threads, I am not sure if this realistic. I know I can't finance unless I am going full time..which is why I am waiting till state college time, but I am hoping that since my husband only makes $80,000 (or is that considered a lot? ) I should be able to get all the loans I need. I don't plan on working and going to school. But, what could throw a wrench is my son will graduate when he is 16 (turning 17 that September). I'll probably still have a year or two of college left. Will it screw up the financial aid for either of us I will still be going to college when he is eligible to start? Am I crazy to think I am going to get the loans I need so I can go back to school? After reading the FAFSA threads, I am kind of scared now!
