    TWENTY thousand!?!?! Is that for NEW grads?!?! Wow....

    My only concern about that would be that I took A&P I a couple of years ago with a gal who worked there as a unit secretary or something similar and she said it was a positively miserable place to work and that EVERYONE was unhappy course you always have to take that with a grain of salt and consider the source (I didn't know her well), but that could account for what sounds like 10X what the other sign-on bonuses I have read about for new grads in this area!!
    There's a few students in my A&P II class that said they took A&P I over 3 years ago. As the teacher was lecturing and asking questions, the one student who took A&P I 4+ years ago was answering all of the questions and I was like, What?.

    Also, I think Des Peres is offering that huge sign on bonus for a reason (obviously not a good one). That money sounds GOOD but we all know, all money is not good money. There, for sure, will be some really tough strings attached. Just my thought......

    If you go with SSM, mention my name (email me for it). We both get a bonus. =)
    Good luck!
