I won't be able to move into my apartment due to extenuating circumstances until August 1st. So it would mean either staying in my cousin's guest room for a month or commuting from DC, staying in NJ 4 days a week and driving back on the weekends. Do you think the jumpstart is worth all this? I need some advice!
If I go, I won't be doing it. I need the $$, so I'd rather stay at my job.
I agree with both of you - its annoying
That being said, I'm not necessarily believing all the stories they're putting out. Consider who's in those classes (a lot of gunners) and moreover the added cost of tuition (by credit hour I think) and COL (plus loss of income).
There are benefits to both sides...the real killer one is that regardless of what happens over the summer, 40-50% of the class only focuses on 3 classes rather than 4....
