"Yes I offered to pay the money, even though i do not receive child support, only 100.00 from his disibility."
So what do you call that money? A donation?
"I am in NY, i applied to the progam that was here initially, but due to state cuts, the program too was cut. I tried to stay local as I applied to quite a few schools in the surrounding area (under a 4 hr drive from current local) unfortunately, those schools did not accept me as my major has a very competitive, limited program."
SO you are not good enough to get into a LOCAL school, and you think that justifies you moving thousands of miles away?
"My son has already expressed his want to come with me, and when his father and I discussed this with him he told both of us he would go live with dad, but only if mom came."
OMG, you involved a SIX year old in such a conversation?
"one more thing "gr8dad" if you were raising your children and you had to move temporarily for a job or something, would you leave your children with someone who doesn't even know their teachers name or the childs after school hobbies/day to day stuff, then come back for them? if not, then you sir are the hypocrite here..."
The difference between your hypothetical situation, and the REAL situation is that you don't HAVE to move, you are CHOOSING to move. Choose a different major.
Why give a "senior" discount, they have had plenty of time to raise the money...
