Should I Stay Or Should I Go?

Well, here's a new twist to add to the dilemma: UCB sent me an internship application, essentially inviting me to apply since I volunteered with this year's Del Close Marathon. It would be one 8-hour shift a week, and in exchange I would get two free classes, not to mention networking like whoa. It's a great opportunity ... but not if I move to Philly.

I mean, I guess technically I could still do it if I lived in Philly, but it would mean multiple NYC commutes per week (for classes as well as for my internship, not to mention the show requirements that come with each class). But if I stay in New York I'm back to needing an excellent job pretty much immediately or else facing certain financial ruin.

I've got one month to figure out what to do with my life and I haven't got a clue what to do about it.

How long/costly is the trip to NYC from Philly? It sounds to me like it might be tough but worth it.

I wondered about this too.

Bus is about $10-20 round trip and takes two hours. It's about 90 miles. You can do the cheapie commuter-train connection (as soon as Trenton station reopens from Irene-caused flooding) in about 2.5 hours, for about $25 round trip. Amtrak is hideously expensive (about $120 round trip, but only takes an hour and twenty minutes)
