Help Sheila Decide - Art School or Medical Imaging Degree

What would you do?

Sheila, 30, wants to go back to school so she can earn more money.  She currently has an AA degree from her local community college.  She loves art and wants to learn how to animate films.

Should she go for what she loves, or should she take the safe, secure route and get a medical imaging degree instead?

She would go for the art degree in a heartbeat but she also has a young son to support.  She is worried art school might leave her with a large student loan debt and an insecure job future.

The medical imaging degree is fast, relatively cheap and much more secure.

What advice would you give Sheila?
