Only problem is that I've had a major unexpected expense arise that is gonna take a few thousand out of my pocket so I'll need more time to save up to make the move up there. I requested a start date in January 2014 as opposed to the original date of October 28th and he said that "it really shouldn't be a problem" but he has to check on that. Does anyone see any issues that may arise from pushing back my start date a few months? I know it may seem silly but I just want to cover all my bases. Thanks!
What type of internship are you doing . . . Are you in law school? How can you move somewhere else in the middle of the semester to start an internship? My voluntary internship was during the school semester but started in the beginning of the semester.
Anyway, one problem you may have is that your background check may end before your internship does (if you were able to get a background check done). I know for the DOJ, background checks for internships only last six months, not sure about the DoD. If it does only last six months, and you have already gotten it done, that could be problematic.
