I'm in a PT program, and some students in my class don't work. It seems like at least a third of them either don't work or work only like 10 hours a week. To be honest, those of us who do work are a little grouchy about that, because it seems like they have an unfair advantage over us and over the FT students.However, the people I know who got good grades this last semester had full time jobs while going to school PT. I think it's because ppl who have a lot to do get good at being efficient. It might be glorious to sleep in every day, but do you think employers after graduation or for the summers will look favorably on someone who goes PT without a good reason?
If you want to just concentrate on school for a semester, though, why don't you just go to a FT program?
