Mass transit.

I'm spending nearly $400/month on automotive-related expenses for a car I don't enjoy driving. That's about 25% of my monthly income, and when it really comes down to it, I think I'd rather be saving that money for something better, like travel. Or education. Or Scotch. Lots and lots of Scotch. [more inside]

Student loans at 40?

Is it worth it at 40yrs. old to take out student loans and go back to school full-time for 2 years? The profession I am interested in has a starting pay around 45-60K and is in the healthcare profession, so jobs are plentiful. I would be taking out about 30K in loans and of course, losing my current salary. My spouse and I both make pretty good money, we have a 4 month old child, we own a home and have 2 car notes, but no other debt. Considering these factors is it worth it to take on that amount of debt at 40 to make that kind salary? Is having a more satisfying career, being a happier person, parent and spouse (not that I am unhappy personally, just very dissatisfied with my career) worth the loss of salary and debt? Is that fair to my family?

I made an error in bank's favor.

I accidentally paid Sallie Mae FOUR months’ worth of federal student loans, which totals an amount I can’t possibly afford. I asked my bank to place a stop order on the electronic payments but there’s a possibility the transactions may still go through, before the stop order is processed (3 business days). What can I do to recover my money now, or in the event that the transactions indeed go through? [more inside]

HP 35s a good choice for Mechanical Engineering student?

I'm in my second year and so far my cheap little TI 30xIIs has worked fine for me, but my DC Circuits professor told the class that using the TI 30xIIs is cumbersome compared to the HP 35s for some material later in the semester. He said he highly recommends purchasing an HP 35s. I'm willing to spend the $50, but he's an Electrical Engineer teaching electrical classes. Would the HP 35s be good for me as a mechanical student?

Student in SF; trying to find nonprofit work

Long-time MeFi lurker finally asking a question — I'm a 24-year-old student in San Francisco looking for a job in the nonprofit sector, particularly with social justice organizations that work directly with people to find resources to help connect them to services, education, or other vital resources.
