There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
I was reading up on UCLA's FEMBA program and it mentions that some students fly down to Los Angeles from the Bay Area every weekend to attend classes. They would leave early Saturday morning and return home later in the evening. Is this common for other part-time programs that offer weekend courses?
I might consider doing this myself, but I can't ignore the possible downsides. It seems that the potential social disconnect between a "fly-in" student and the rest of his/her fellow students is quite probable. For example, you will only be able to attend social events that occur when you are in town. Also, given the current security of the country and unpredictable weather that may occur, it seems that over the course of three years you are bound to miss a flight or two. Does anyone have any insight that they dont mind sharing?
Anderson is my #1 choice and I'd be a fly-in. Its very manageable. I did the open house in March as a fly-in then came back to SJC with a group of P/Ters as well!
I have spoken with a few alums about this and they all stated that over the course of 3 years the definitely got to know the Anderson Bay Area folks, but it did take some time/effort.
Personally, I know there will be times when I stay the weekend, or fly in Friday at Noon for an evening event. I accept this going in, and if it means going to the school with the best fit for me takes a few stays at a Holiday Inn, so be it.
In the end, it comes down to you. If you've got the will, there is a way.
