Re: Just got a job and another employer(higher paying) wants to interview me
It's better to just get your degree and incur debt then to accept the forklifting job, save money, go to school, then go into accounting at a state school. You'll net more income in just under 2 years overall and if you leave after one year (over about 6 years). It only gets worse after the longer you stay. Having disposable income is very attractive to have after time off of school, which may tempt you to not go back.
What I'm trying to say is... if you're actually set on accounting, then you may as well do it now.
