|WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

The Question Club
So, I'm a senior in college who'll graduate in May. I have the option of spending my final semester either in NYC or in the middle of nowhere (where my college is located). Since it is my final semester, I will be working on a senior thesis, which will require time and dedication. If I go to NYC, I'm concerned that it would be too hectic to get productive work done. Also, I'd be interning about 3 times a week from 10am-6. I'm sure that by the time I get home/eat dinner, I'd feel too burnt out to get meaningful work done. |
Also, one should note that I'd be the first in my major to do this program in NYC...meaning that I'd have less faculty and resources within close grasp. I'm concerned about feeling like a lost puppy in NYC and hence not be in the school mindset (which should be my top priority).
-Awesome internship in an industry I think I may want to pursue a career in. Also, I feel as though this internship could really help boost my future/career.
-NYC is fun.
-I would have to pay for housing, which is notoriously expensive in NYC.
-Being in NYC is like burning money.
Staying on campus:
-Housing is already taken care of.
-Faculty/resources readily available to guide me through my senior thesis (which I would need to successfully complete in order to graduate).
-Life is comfortable here, whereas NYC can feel crazyyy sometimes.
-Constantly asking myself "what if I had gone to NYC and done that internship?"
So, the question is: What would you do? Which one - NYC or staying on campus - would be better, all of the above considered?
