taxes done: i owe $352 to the feds, and $361 to the state. bah. at least it’s not like last year (a bazillion dollars owed to the state). i think it even was better than when i was originally fiddling around with my taxes a month or so ago… i realized that though my work pays for my tuition, i still paid for some of it myself, so yay education credit.
when i was talking with festive last night, she suggested i try taking 9 credits of work this fall, and then doing BUNAC next year. it’s a neat idea, though i don’t know how realistic it is to try to get 9 credits in the fall what with working full time. she suggested that maybe i should consider quitting work and finishing my degree in order to get a better job after degree. it might be a good idea, since just a quick look at the schedule for the upcoming summer classes (fall classes aren’t up yet) show nothing in the evenings starting after 6 pm, which is a problem for me since my new schedule will have me getting off of work at that time. while it’s not going to be that bad for the fall (there’s definitely going to be some classes starting after that time), it throws a wrench into any plans for taking classes over the summer – with that schedule of classes, the only way i’d be able to get any summer classes in would be if i manage to get an earlier shift for july-september, and then take the classes during the second summer session. other issues to consider include how i’ll be paying for it, too.
i guess i’ll have to find out from my supervisor what the exception process is regarding leaving work for classes.
hm. lemme see what i need to graduate…
that’s just umbc’s requirements… this is what i need for the information systems program:
Mathematics and Computer Science
about 16 classes left, not counting any additional electives i may need to get up to 120 credits (though i doubt it’d be many if any at all). gahh, so much left to do…
eta: actually, make that 15 classes: i’m already taking IS 436 this current semester…
eta eta: 13 classes left! recounted considering the overlap between some of umbc’s requirements and the information system department’s requirements
