Well, I can tell you your most feasible options as far as school goes.

Tri-County Tech: If you move to Anderson/Williamston then I would assume this would be a no-brainer if they have a Vet program; and I would think they would. From what I hear they are VERY affordable.

Greenville Tech: A little further to travel but I know many people that travel from Anderson that go to GTech. Again, very affordable. I'm not sure if Tri-County is but, GTech is state accredited so Clemson and other schools will accept a lot of their credits if you transfer.

Clemson: Expensive and probably just as much of a travel as GTech but great education. I would say the only reason to go here would be if neither Tri-County or GTech offered a Vet degree/certificate.

Tri-County Tech looks like the best option for me as of now. I have visited Clemson before and I wasn't a big fan of the campus. I'm not very interested in the college aspect of college anymore (parties, football games etc) I just want to get in and get out with my degree as quick as possible with as little distraction as possible. Tri-County Tech does have a Vet program and a few people on here have spoken highly of it. I am researching Greenville Tech as we speak, but if we do end up in Anderson, we only have one vehicle right now so the commute may be difficult. Also, Tri-County Tech offers their pre-req. programs online which I prefer.

Skyliner-
Thanks for that link! We were amazed a few weeks ago when we were down there how much cheaper fuel, and everything else was! We drove straight back from Georgia to New Jersey, about thirteen hours fueled on Red Bull- and even THAT was like a dollar cheaper! haha

It's so they can charge the semi-trucks more. Really I think it's good. Who doesn't have a debit card (same as cash price)?

That may be, but I thought I remembered seeing that using a debit card at gas pumps can result in a hold on the account much larger than your actual purchase. I believe I saw that on a local TV new story a while back. The story also said the same large holds aren't put on the account when you run it as credit (but then you have to pay the higher price)...

I'm pretty sure that's a different issue. I hear the banks are starting to charge more for debit card use but that is through your bank. Then again, I may be mistaken.
