lets see that would be like .... out of the sink and into the frying pan..right ..:D
yeah..but i get better hours, less work, and better pay.

plus when I go to university and i need a part time job I already have kitchen experience, so I can get a good part-time job instead of working fastfood.

I work in a Scottish Pub, our big thing is fish n chips. So, I am on fries..


and yeah, i realize that university is really expensive. I have a university fund set up that has like half of what I need, I think it has $35 000 right now. Plus I'm hoping ot go into co-op so It should pay for the rest.

Last years tuition was 4500.00 just a starting point.... Xanadu stick to it, after you finish your chances for employment are far better. The workplace is changing rapidly. I have been in industry primarily for the last 30 years and the changes in hiring practices have been huge. Most places won't hire you for a common labour pool unless you have grade 12 or better. They usually test for aptitude and now.... how you would fit in to a team enviroment.

my first year at U of T in the astrophysics program (1989) I was paying about $1900 for a full year's tuition. The whole year including staying in residence, food plan, and books,etc cost me about $7000. That even included my spending $$ and travel to and from Northern Ontario to Toronto about 3 times.

Right now, the tuition for one year of the same program is $5000 JUST for the tutition! Cost of living, apartments/residence/meal plans/books/etc has gone up.

I know kids who are paying $10K to $20K a year for school. Thats nuts... I am glad I graduated when I did (3 years University, three years college alldown south and I had only $24,000 in dept when I graduated - I did work summers too)
