It doesn’t help that I’m trying to leave two things though leaving thing A will involve leaving thing B. This is not a mutual relationship because leaving B does not involving leaving A.
Either way, there are two valid plans, one is 16 months and costs a good deal, another is 2 years and costs nearly as much. I’m trying to find out which will be less strenous to my schedule. But I have an exit game and if both fall through, I’m just leaving without bettering myself. The point is, 2 years from next fall (when classes are definitely done) I’ll be gone… regardless of the manner in which I leave.
