    It's not too too hard if you're focused on your school work and aren't staying up ridiculous hours because of work. If you don't mind a heavy workload, it can be done. I did it for five years.

    For me, it was very hard to keep my grades up with a full time job. I found it easier for me to go to school full time and work part ime.

    Some people could do it but I don't think it is advisable. If you are working full time then that would mean around 9 hours most days including to getting to and from work. Then if you are going to school full time that could mean around 7 or more hours per day for classes and labs. That sort of schedule doesnt leave much room for studying and homework, laundry and other junk you gotta do, sleeping, time with partner or family, and so on.

    My opinion is that you should consider doing one full time and the other part time. And remember that living is almost as much about managing money as it is the actual amount of money a person gets.

    I don't have any personal experience to answer this question, but I do think it is possible to work and go to school full time. It will be difficult of course and you will have to make sacrifices, but it would be worth it to graduate. There is always the option of taking a school loan if you need to decrease you work hours or move to a part-time schedule. A lot of people take loans and you can usually get a good interest rate for a federal student loan. Regardless, I commend you for wanting to finish school and you should never let anything stand in the way of your dreams!
