I think that job would suit you better than tech work would. For no other reason than it would require you to carry a gun at work :twisted:

Yeah I was mentioning just the plain tuiton. If I lived in the dorms it would be 14k.

It more like 7k with the books since I have my own house with roomies.

Thank god for having an assistanship which gives me 1300 a month to check papers and sit in one class as well as knocking 1-2 grand off the bill for the year,

brucelee, i thought about doing this too. i graduated with a BS in criminal justice and still am having trouble getting hired here in tennessee as a cop. its political around here. so that sucks. i dont know how it is in CA but around here its all in who you know. though times are hard now, i believe that in time, i will get hired somewhere. in the meantime, i am just working shit jobs and trying to make ends meet until i can become what i have always dreamed of, being a police officer. the academy here is not that expensive. if i were you, i would apply with the CA highway patrol. they were after me a while back but i turned them down because i didnt wanna move from my home state to CA. they are always hiring and from what i can tell are pretty easy to get on with.. check into it. CHP is rated #1 for highway patrols in the nation. they got their stuff together out there, thats for sure, as far as the highway patrol goes! :D
