Is it true that it is getting a oil rig job in North Dakota?
I'm 18 yrs old and I'm going to start college in September or close to that month, I'm not sure. But I don't even sure what I even want to do in college, I think I would like to become a police officer. I live in New York by the way. I'm going to graduate HS in mid February. I was planning on start working as soon as I graduated from HS which is in February, and save up all of my money and buy a car to move temporarily to North Dakota and go to college over there for 2 yrs and earn my associate degree. This is a BIG and RISKY plan, what do you think of it?

Check with Minot State University. They were and may still be offering in-state tuition rates to out of state residents. If you're looking for a trade school, I'd check out Wahpeton but that's on the eastern side of the state... More
