In 1967 I was a former seminarian and just out of the army with three years of college.  So why did I go back to school?  Mostly because of the girls I think.  I dabbled around in more philosophy courses and naturally choir and chorus and anything else that had girls.  I was in school until my money ran out which wasn’t very long.  Those Jesuit colleges were so expensive anyway.

Several years later I had a mortgage and two kids in private school and never enough money so I took a second job which still did not generate enough money.  But I did find out that my work would reimburse my tuition for an MBA graduate degree.  I also found out that my uncle would reimburse me for an MBA graduate degree.  Finally my GI benefits would reimburse me for an MBA graduate degree.  So I went back to school.
