Cal Poly is not the easiest of schools, i couldn't imagine working full time and trying to be a full time student. (then again i wasn't in the best place when i was going there so YMMV). the school itself is great and has a really good reputation.

where do you get these offers? why haven't i gotten one? what are you doing that's so different from what i'm doing that you're getting offers to go cross country?

if it works out then go for it (if you want) but we'll all miss you.
If I was going to go through with it I'd be at Cal Poly part time like I am now at GVSU I figured living costs out there would be straight up ridiculous. Although if the job was paying for my school which it sounds like they would then the cost of Cal Poly would be moot point (actually would mean I'd have an extra $10k a year even just making what I currently do since I pay for college out of pocket) so no tuition would nearly cover my rent if I could find a place for $1000-1300 a month.



I think it could be do-able! over spring break I'd really like to head out there and check the school/company out and see whats up.

Also not sure what if anything I'm doing differently, the offer came up sort of round about. I've been driving the CEO's of the cali company around GR the last week in the hummer they were asking me about what I was going to school for, told them and they said I should come to Cal Poly instead and work for them and they'd guarantee me a job. More of a right place at the right time sort of thing!

well if you don't mind driving to poly all the time you can get some decent deals on housing.

SLO is an awesome little town, but there's no in n out burger (and no drive throughs within city limits, stupid ordinance)

brad makes a wunderbar point. you have to get your car smogged every 2 years out there which involves a visual, a diagnostic, and a metered test. it's hard to fly under the radar out there.

you make the decision, you'll have to do what's right for you. I left, but i'm happier than hell to be back.

brad if you think you can afford it i say go for it. at worst you could always come back and ask for your job back. see what its like to move out of state, its definitely going to change your life. problem solved with your car, keep it titled in michigan, thats what a lot of the car people do out there, or if your need to know some places to test your car and pass let me know. my buddy knows a few people out there that should beable to get you contacts.

well ya keeping it titled in michigan is good.

SLO is like the random town in BFE of Cali.

plus the state has been cracking down on people who do smog tests so the number of people who's palms can be greased is dwindling.

it's a cool state, SLO is a pretty kick ass town, Poly is an awesome school. don't know how well your credits will transfer though. although if school is free i doubt it matters.

anywho back to testing flex fuel sensors... yay...
