Do any of you college students work and go to school at the same time?

 
What are some of your study habits. Im a full time student and i work evryday from 2-7...leaving me with little time to study and its reflecting in my grades, so im considering working three days a week. just until the end of the semester to see how I do on my exams. It's all so very stressful, i've been in college on and off for over 2 1/2 years now, id like to be fully dedicated so I can hurry and finish. Any suggestions, tips, stories? Im open to them.

girl i feel your pain!
 
i work full time and right now im in school part time but i'll be starting back full time in jan. i would just have to say time management. study on breaks at work (if you can), before and after work and as much as possible on the weekends. if you can afford it, cut back your hours. i need to work full time to pay my bills but i would definately put school first if i could afford it.
 
 
good luck!

When I was in school.... I worked full time and went to school full time at night ( I studied on the bus, train and a little before bed time) My schedule was crazy work from 9 to 5 and I had to commute all the way to the end of Brooklyn for school. I didn't get out until about 9:30. So the 1.5 hour it took me to get home (I studied) 

I also teamed up with another girl to study afterwards in the library.

After I graduated, I tried to work full time and go to school full time at a 4 year school, but I didn't last too long. I was a walking zombie. Shame to say I dropped out.

Any in between time you have use it to study. Bring your books to work and study during your break too.

I feel ya girl! I take a full load every semester 15-18 credits so it's no way I could work a demanding job right now.  I would suggest you work on campus.  Most jobs on campus work around your schedule, allow you to study during down time, and they are easier to manage than a part time job that you have to drive to daily after class.  I've been working on campus for three years now & I love it.  My job allows me to study, it's convenient b/c right after class is over I can walk to the next building work a few hours then off to my next class!! Go by career services or Human resources at your college. HTH & you do not have to be granted work-study on your fin aid in order to work on campus

I don't advise working full time if you're in school for any reason.  I work 2 eight hour shifts on the weekend and 2 4-6 hr shifts during the week.  It works well for me and I'm able to study and do my work.  It also helps to be in touch with professors and attend office hours.

I also work full time and am in school full time.  I'm also a mother as well and I have a sick mother. Its extremely hard but I stay encouraged.  I continue to study whenever I have the free time.  I study on my days off.  On my lunch break.  Before and after class.  When I'm with my mom.  Both me and my son have a study time. In the long run it'll be worth it.
