Fish hate me

I have been fishing a lot lately. What do you expect, I live in Alaska now.

Fish don't like me. I guess that's why they call it fishing and not catching.

On the education front, the new GI Bill rocks! This means that my teacher certification is paid for and my family still gets to eat.

Fishing, like hunting, teaches one patience. That's what my father always said, anyway.

I already got one education paid for by the taxpayer. This new GI Bill, like the old, won't give me another.

Guess I have to pay for it myself if I ever want a master's degree.

Think about it. If the feds paid for that, they taxpayer would have funded my BS and MS degrees, as well as my current paycheck. Heck, I may as well turn into a socialist!

Good luck finding any government funding for grad school.

Actually the GI Bill does pay for graduate school, but only up to the tuition amount of the undergraduate tuition rate.

I'm amazed, but considering the diff between grad and undergrad tuition rates, you're still paying through the nose. Using my university, just cause I know exactly where to find the tuition rates, for grad school (all per credit hour), $291.97/$850.33 (resident/non), and for undergrad, $190.25/$702.65. That would be $101.72/$147.68 you have to pay. Then, there are the additional fees like the $200 technology fee, and my personal favorite, the $1,000 "Excellence in Education donation."
