Until you know what’s up, why not just finish the paperwork and get in to the program. Once done, take one course only – and do not take out a loan for the full program. Most schools allow for more time than the “normal” 3 years to finish a program.

– Get your name in the system.

– One class to start out

– Do not take out a loan for the entire program – just worry about tuition and books for the one class.

You’re set. 🙂 Take your one class, as a grad student, while you gauge the economy and take care of the kids and so on.
