    I just told them that I am currently enrolled in an online program but I wanted to transfer to a traditional school. I didn't mention anything about my procrastination

    But it wasn't procrastination. It was not knowing their schedule. (And yep, that can go against you too). Telling them that you wanted to switch is the best way.

    Hope it all goes well!

    The deadline is indeed firm. Well that gives me 10 months to get my ducks in a row for my application then. Maybe the financial situation with work will be better and I can get reimbursed.

    Maybe I'll take something fun at the community college in the meantime. Gotta keep the student loan people at bay

    Good idea, Johnie!

    Will they accept community college coursework to keep the student loan repayment at bay?

    I already paid off my student loans before I began post-graduate work. Since I paid for that OOP while operating a business a gazillion hours per week, it took forever. Still, it was nice not to have any debt when I finished!

    Yep, as long as I am in school half time, I will be eligible for a deferment.

    Might as well take something you enjoy, then!

    And at the lowest possible cost!

    After all, you are the Budget Queen! :D

    Good plan. Take a few classes to keep the loans payment people away. It will also keep you in the school mode. Not too mention this gives you plenty of time to work up your statement of purpose and get great recommendation letters. :D

    Taking something fun is alluring, but do try to make it something that will enhance your career. :D Computer software applications, a language, something along those lines. :D
