Just curious about the extremes some have gone to pay for school. I am considering cashing in about 8k of an old 401k from a previous employer. After penalties and taxes it would be about 4-5k I could use. Considering the increase in income after school and the fact we would be living on one income during school this is an attractive option.

What does anyone else think?

Good or bad idea?

Still uncertain about what all is involved in paying for school so right now I am simply trying to save as much as possible.
