I can honestly say I really don't have any interest in buying a house.... too much responsibility. Maybe a condo or apartment where I pay maintenance type dues, but not a house.
The thing is that rent is so high in a lot of places that it's about the same, if not more, than the mortgage for a bunch of foreclosed homes, so really the only question in my head is if I'm committed to staying in the area for the next 15+ years.
Going to be giving it a lot of thought the next couple weeks....
For you guys from Chicago, elsewhere in Illinois, and general surrounding area...my cousin is a senior in high school. She's been admitted to Michigan (Ann Arbor), Illinois (Urbana Champaign), Miami Ohio - and is waiting for Wisconsin (Madison)...which apparently is her first choice. Does anyone have anything to say about any of this schools for my own interest? I have relatives who went to Miami - so I know it well. I've been to football games at Michigan, know Wisconsin is a good school, know nothing about Illinois :shrug:
I feel so bad US kids re college applications - it just seems brutal all the qualifications you need to have even for a mid-level university - and even then the schools seem hard to get into.
In Canada, it's pretty unforgiving...for admissions they generally want to know what your marks were for the last 2 years of high school - the good is it's straightforward...the bad is that your university acceptance will be tied to your marks alone.

i.e. like a trainer, that sort of stuff? or in the business side of things?

i'm still waiting for my new GoToMyPc password - if i can get on that program from my Ipad...can i edit word documents? I'll be honest...i use my macbookpro for everything - but work gave me an Ipad simply b/c they think Ipads are cool and everyone in business is getting an ipad (fyi - it's not like i'm a late adopter to technology...it's just my life requires a laptop and phone...not an ipad)...the fact that my company is handing some of us ipads while loving downsizing and has some computer programs that have interfaces that heavily resemble DOS is a conversation for another day)
what i'm i supposed to do w/ this ipad (having my mac & phone)? i'm a loser w/ a blackberry - so my ipad has finally allowed me to play angry birds...so at least i'm catching up in that regard.
