Being a stripper

I'm in college and the cost is starting to get to me because my HS screwed up and I didn't get a grant I was supposed to get. I'm gonna owe about $4,000 for my room & board. My question is, what's it like to be a stripper? A girl that graduated 2 years before me is a stripper now & I hear she makes great money. I used to be a dancer & I think I'd be good at it but I just want to know what I'd be getting myself into. And how to get into it the right way.
