Like several other ppl @ MR, I work a 40 hr week (many times more, @ 2 jobs), and I am a full-time student. But I wonder if my feeling that there are lots of people in this situation stems from the company I keep. I had a DoctorQ-esque moment and started thinking about this for a second. So I went through my personal cell phone. Of the 126 entries; 71 are married professionals who don't go to school; 43 are students, 36 of the students have some kind of job that I know about, leaving only 7 who don't; the remaining 12 are single men and women not in school. I speak to most of the "students" several times a week, and usually only talk to the married ppl on weekends and holidays. Even though it feels like "everybody" i know is a working student, less than 1/3 of the people I know really are. And in fact most people are just working. Of course this idea of everybody being both a student and a worker is reinforced by the fact that most students (especially grad students) do have a full-time job. I wonder if my situation is typical...anybody else care to weigh in?
