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 am a US citizen enrolled in a California State University and am signed up to spend the next year studying abroad in Europe. Before this happens I need to settle about $10,000 worth of debts and deal with a car payment. The foreign university needs me to show a bank balance of about $15000 to cover expenses for the year and I am wondering what kind of student loan options are available to settle debts and show proof.

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]

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?

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. Looking at Craigslist is pretty depressing; most of the jobs posted seem to be higher-level jobs, or want more formal education than I actually have. [more inside]

I'll be a student in the UK for at least one year. While there are many threads dedicated to unanimously deciding the process is a long, painstakingly near-impossible one, I've yet to see someone recommend a specific type of account and/or bank. (Especially since newer regulations have been implemented). If anyone knows of a FREE way of opening a UK bank account without an established residency, please share details. Thanks.
