Do you just take classes, or is there any opportunity for an internship or practical experience?
This is the main reason I decided against doing our program. Yes you get credit, but very little resume value IMO.
I did the backpacking thing so I considered that my chance to travel, but if you haven't been abroad it ma be a good combo.
The idea of, I'll take out an extra $10k and booze it up in Europe while getting 6 hours is not the best route, I'm not saying that thats what you planned, but I've seen it.
