School/Work Scheduling Conflict??

Question:I'm in my last year of college (hopefully). I'm 23 years old, so I'm a bit of an older student. It's taken me a few years to figure out what I want to do. I live at home w/ my divorced mother. She does not mind at all, but she does want me to finish school. My boyfriend and I are getting serious and she says I can live at home, but I should start saving money for a house/wedding, etc. I agree.

The thing is, I can't decide on my schedule for the fall. Back in the Spring, I had a job lined up for the Fall. It would have been full time during the day and I would have gone to school at night. Well, that fell through.

I orginally only planned on taking 3 classes this semester and 2 next. I would graduate in May.

Now, I'm wondering if I should just go to school Full-time during the day. For example, have class on Mondays and Wednesdays but go all day from 8am-10pm (breaks in between classes, of course).

But, i'm unsure. I have a job as a waitress and I told them

If you can swing it financially, and have time enough to do your homework, do your studies full time and get through quicker. Congratulations to you on tackling this. It isn't easy to get through college, especially as a mature student, when you have to pay your own way. But your boyfriend might have to take a back seat for a year while you complete your courses.
Unless you absolutely have to work, go full-time to school, possibly even with some part-time hours. You'll be happier being done sooner and being able to work full-time instead of trying to constantly juggle things that you don't necessarily need to be doing.
