So Karl is applying for this nursing program that is one year long. In one year, he would get his RN and his Bachelor's in nursing... perfect. If he doesn't get in, he has to go through the technical college and then take a bunch of online courses, which will take at least six years to get to the RN. I really really want him to finish so he can stop going to school and start making money. And babies.
So the application is due on Friday. I called him on Tuesday from San Diego, where I was for a conference. He said, "Well, I'm going to email a couple of professors today to see if I can get some letters of recommendation." Um, the application is due on Friday. What is wrong with this picture? I can only nag so much, people. Fortunately, I knew (because I am extra nosy) that the application only asks for reference contact information, not letters of recommendation... otherwise I would have flipped.
Seriously. It's like he wants to stay in school forever.
