    At least go to the interview so you won't always be wondering "what if." I also went through the interview process where they called you in, said they would call you for a second interview & then only wanted part-time flex & you had to be available within 1 hour notice----just in case one of the full-time carriers called in sick.

    I've decided to go for the postal job, it will only be part time so it will give me a chance with school. I will be starting my prequisites and I will enter the Nursing program (depending on my progress) in summer of 2004. I really need the $$$$$$$$ so i will go for it. Thanks again everyone for all your advice. Take care......:kiss
