I battled back and forth with the idea of taking summer classes. Then when I sat down and looked at the money and grants coming in for those 13 weeks of school, I couldn't argue with the numbers. While my situation would be more relatable to students going to school on the 9/11 GI Bill, those who get the Pel Grant, or other grants would benefit as well.

Also, the first summer session is 5 weeks. The second session is 8. I don't know who determines the length of a semester, or how that even works, but just taking classes for that first short session can help put a big dent in your time to finish your degree.
