Would I be better off in grad school or on a psychiatrist's couch?

I am on the verge of applying to a graduate program in history at UMaine, but I am worried that I'm doing it for the wrong reasons. I grew up in a very blue collar family in rural Maine, and I've always wanted to prove that I could succeed in an academic career. Do any of you guys have a similar experience, and if so did you make the decision to go to grad school? Did it meet your expectations, and did it exorcise your demons? [more inside]

Two Great Tastes That Go Great Together?

Asking for a friend: Buying a house and going to grad school...can it be done? There are various circumstances in my life which make this a very advantageous time for me to purchase a house, however, I am also planning to quit my job and go to grad school in the spring. The mortage payments will be less than I would pay in rent, and between help from family and financial assistance I will be able to afford all my expenses, but am concerned that if I apply for financial aid before finishing the mortgage paperwork, it will cause issues with the lender. Is this the case? If I don't purchase the house now, due to other circumtances it could easily be 6-8 years before I have this opportunity again, if ever. Any advice appreciated!
