Take the job and go to a college that's closer to the job. Hopefully most of your credits will transfer.

Simple rule, if you walk away from university you will never go back.
Simple as that!

My advice is get your degree. I work with so many people who wish they would've gotten their degree so that they could get past the glass ceiling that has been put in their way.

Why not move and continue to work for your buddy? Just transfer to a school that is local to that area for the next two years until you get your degree...

Words of troof. Seen too many people say they'd go back to get their masters and never did/do. Which is exactly why I got my bachelors and masters together

I'm one of these people right now. But then again I haven't found a job yet that I am willing to stay at for the long haul. I'm not paying for grad school when a new job may take me out of state or something. Plus the local college to my work, Princeton, doesn't offer a masters in my field of accounting.

You said you love the job? Are there growth opportunities there (ie. move up and make more money)? Then do it. Unless you enjoy studying more, then do that. It's up to you but I'd recommend doing what you love more, that way you'll be happier.

Once again, yes I will be attending the local school and graduating.

I love my job, and this new position I am very excited about. I see a lot of upward mobility and even use this career (however long it will last) as a stepping stone for greater things in the future.

Graduating and making $$, win win I think...I hope...

Not that I have any experience to be commenting, but managing a store does not sound like a job of the future. You may be making a lot now, but who else is before you when they start cutting?
Oversaid but true, stay in school, however if its a for-profit and not a 'real' school, having one of those degrees is equivalent to nothing, sorry to be harsh. They are scams, you need to go to a proper school, just because it costs a lot does not make it legit.
If you don't have a good degree, you need legit skills that people will pay for, you can save up the cash now while you have a high paying job but don't think its going to last for ever, much less guarantee you a path up the ladder, unless you know what you're talking about.

So attending USF a huge state school is a bad idea? I am not dropping out... I have said that enough at this point!

I am basically going to school AND making 50k. Not seeing a downside here...

So it's clear, again, I AM finishing school!

Im confused, are you saying USF is not a proper school? Or Rollins is not a proper school? Rollins isn't "for profit" either.

So it seems you have made up your mind in these two pages of posts. Now the only thing left to do is heed my advice. Trust me.
