My friend Mawi has three kids in a very pricey Alabang school, and she says she could buy a second-hand car with the check she just wrote. That's why she decided to take a full-time job. Freelance writing was fun, but to earn even half of what she needed, she'd have to work 36-hour days.
Ah, tuition woes.
If you're still worrying about where to get the money, check out the May issue of Working Mom magazine. We have an article on possible sources for tuition loans, and the real cost of paying tuition in full vs. quarterly or monthly installments. We even interviewed a freelancer who found a way to make it work -- hey, Mawi, it's not too late to quit your job!
