    You should just get it done. Consider the fact that its the same amount of time lost, just spread out along a larger amount of time. Also, consider the fact that the sooner you graduate you can get a better job and make more money. It can be a large difference. Personally, I dont see any cons with that option. Sure, it sucks.. but you have to do it either way!

    Good luck 🙂

    Yes, please continue and get it done ASAP. And $400 a credit is not bad AT ALL. You are investing in your future, and many schools are over 1000 a credit.

    Get it done. It sounds like you have given yourself enough breaks (and I do not mean that in a judgemental way at all). Obviously, doing it slowly hasn’t worked out well for you. It might be worth it to try and just get everything done. 

    I am giving this advice as a college advisor for a master’s program. Students who go through the program in one quick shot and really work with a deadline in mind usually are the most succesful. Those who let themselves drop out of classes, prolong the program, modify their schedule, etc. are more likely to drop out.

    If I were you I would just get it all done as soon as possible.

    If you’ve been going at it for 8 years already, then I think it’s time to buckle down and get it done. Making more money sooner will be worth it.

    Get it done.  Employer reimbursement makes up for the lower pay in the long run.

    @howtobeawife:  Not at all. Get it done. Move on to other goals, like prepping for an eventual new job, Darling Husband time, a fun hobby.

    @howtobeawife:  Employer reimbursement would still need to be taken care of a year after if you took the longer route. It seems like you really want to take the longer route, but consider it might take longer if you keep pushing it back and back! Just go get em!

    Get it done, don’t put it off. Speaking from experience, it sucks going through classes at a quick pace and you do burn out but I would SO much rather work my bum off to get out early.

    Oh yuck, I definitely would be tempted to have more time with the hubs but I agree with PPs.. Option 2.  It’s a small sacrifice to pay in the grand scheme of things.. and you guys have a lifetime together to enjoy each other’s company.  And you’d avoid wanting to kick yourself for not having chosen this option when it’s dragging on until 2014!
