I was just wondering if you could talking about the work load? How rigorous is the day-to-day work, time commitment etc. thanks a lot.
a lot. more than a full time commitment. but its very satisfying, too. its hard to get a handle on in the beginning, but after a month or so you will really get used to it. first half of the semester i was able to get all my work done mon-fri (generally) and have saturdays and sundays free. but as you get to the halfway point and you need to start outlining, and the memo is due, you'll be adding another day, minimum. when you approach finals, you'll be going nonstop essentially 7 days per week.
but it all depends on how well you want to do.
and keep in mind, all the friends you make at school will be doing the same thing, so it's not like have another option! so you'll get used to it, because you have to but trust me, we always find time to get our drink on
