Afternoon drivers, I finally pulled the trigger and went with NTTTS ( New England TT school ). I start on 19 Sept. After many long hours of digging and changing my mind over and over again, I went to speak with the financial aide dept. today and found out I qualified for several grants that brought the cost to me down to almost nothing. I ended up going with the 540 hr course because of all the grants. No OOP expenses at all for a yr. than I have 10 yrs. to pay it off. Which I will payoff early. If you remember I asked about the 540 hr course @ $10k and everyone of you said that's not necessary. Well with all my research and meeting with other schools for the 160 hr courses. I would have had to pay up front costs of anywhere from 3500 - 6000.00. At this time that is no way possible without borrowing it from someone which I didn't want to do. So I sucked it up and it may take me longer to obtain my CDL , but it was the best cost effective way to do it FOR ME.... Holy bats..t batman I'm starting truck driving school in 2 weeks. GIVE ME SOME DANCING NANA'S :) I just wanted to give a shout out and post all my excitement like all the rest of the noobie's. thanks, Mark soon to be the DAYBREAKER II. gotta keep the ole mans legacy rolling.

The dancing bananas have traditionally been saved for when you graduate CDL school. I will start with the friends for now and save the best for last...

Roger that anchorman, I don't want to break tradition. I will get mine legitimately soon enough. For now I will take the bunches of dancing bananas and friends and do the happy dance ole style :) Thanks all. Damn I haven't gotten so pumped about something in a very long time. Forgot how good it felt. And I just got a start date! what the heck will it be like when I graduate? I will be sure to let you know. But in the meantime I am going to boogie my ass to the coffee pot and get back here to study some more.
