21. Would like to buy a home soon. I am married with two kids of my own and one step daughter that lives with me. I'm still a student (pre-law) but if everything goes as planned I will graduate from law school in May 2017! Besides the student loans the drop my aaoa every fall I should have built my credit up pretty well by then.

I am 34 -- When I was in my 20's like most of you are now, I was playing in rock bands, starting and quitting jobs, drinking lots of booze, and amassing all of those negatives you see in my signature... haha

 

Funny what a decade can do for perspective..
