Many more jobs are starting to do that because of the economy. And I think that is the case at most schools. I wouldn't worry too much. Hopefully the economy will improve significantly by the time you are in that position.
Good to know! I'm not too worried about the jobs thing because I know the economy is rough and I definitely don't expect a job to fall into my lap.
@tstyler98- Why did you choose Wake over other schools and how do you like it so far?
My story is a long story, but in short...I originally planned to go part-time while working full-time as I had a career in DC. I got into George Washington and George Mason and was planning to attend George Washington in Fall 2009. My dad was diagnosed with terminal cancer so I deferred for a year, and decided to apply to schools closer to home in NC. I got accepted at Wake and waitlisted at Chapel Hill (though by the time I got waitlisted at UNC I didn't care and wanted to go to Wake anyway).
I chose Wake because I really liked the school's size, the clinical opportunities, and how great the admissions people were. Overall, I'm very glad with my choice. I really like Wake. I like the small class size, especially because I feel like I know a majority of the students (including those not in my year). The faculty and staff are great, and students are generally always willing to help out.
