What would be the best way for me to pay for my degree?

I've decided that I want to start getting my life together by working on earning a degree in computer science. To do that, I'm going to start attending the local community college full time this fall, in order to cover some basic classes, and then transfer to full university later when I'm a bit more transfer-worthy. Now I need help figuring out how to best manage my money so as not to accrue too much debt in the process. Ideally I'd like to get as much financial aid as possible to cover this, but there are a few issues. [more inside]

is it too late for a 30yr old to get a degree?

I want to get back to school and get a degree to find a better job but I am already 30. Is it too old to try for a degree? my interests are IT and finance, though IT is much more easier for me. Does anyone know the IT market in British Columbia? I don't want to be IT monkey forever and I would like to move up to some manger role in the future. Also, how do employers see hiring a mid 30s with a degree compared to all the mid 20s that are coming out of school these days? I am not sure how or what path I should take but I just know I need more education to get a better paying job.

Public Education in Memphis, Tn

My family and I will be moving to mid-town Memphis this summer. I originally thought private education was the only way to go in Memphis but after doing my research I am finding out that there are some public schools where academics are challenging and they offer more extracurricular activities than the private schools. I am leaning towards White Station high school and Snowden for elementary school. Appreciate any help.

What matters in law school admissions?

I'm a recent graduate of a top 50 undergraduate school with a 3.6 GPA, a major in history and a minor in philosophy, and a 170 LSAT. LSAC says I have around a 50% chance of getting into NYU or Columbia, both of which interest me. I know this is just a representation of the number of students with comparable scores that get in. What determines whether I fall on the good 50% or the bad 50%? Is it extracirriculars (I have none), work experience (I have none), or the prestige of the undergraduate school (decent, but not great)? Do I have a good shot at these schools or should I just save my money and aim a little lower?
