    Does anyone attending La Inter have any info regarding working on campus part time? OR does anyone have info on prospective jobs near the campus where being fully bilingual is not a must?

    npandres no it is not too late. You can apply really late and get in but I wouldn't chance it as they are hiring a new director and already have a new assistant director. The program is so crazy popular as word spreads that I heard they "may" (and don't quote me) limit enrollment a tiny bit next year.

    hihopes I am not sure about work trade but what about Starbucks right next to campus. I don't think you would need much Spanish there. It is the highest grossing Starbucks on the island and is mainly all students.

    hey worldtravelingyogi,
    thanks for your reply. i am going to go speak with the assistant director or director once more on monday before i fly home. she didn't seem very excited about me wanting to change my start date, so i think it will take some convincing. do you think you could pass along my info to one of those people doing the accelerated-november start date combo? feetinthedirt@yahoo.com or--if you know--if i do it this way, will i be taking classes straight through, or will i have the next summer off? will i be taking a heavier courseload each trimester? i am really trying to get all my ducks in a row before i leave. thanks so much for all your help. and if you are around campus on monday, let me know!


    ps i will be camping down in the southwest for the next few days and don't have guaranteed computer access, but will try when i can!

    Does anyone have any idea how to look for apartments near the school. My goal is to start the program in August.

    You can check clasificadosonline.com. But from experience, your best bet is to go in person and look around.

    Hi will be starting the Nursing program in Aug 2012 at the Interamerica as well. I am excited as well. I will be bringing my 12 year old daughter along and I am currently searching for a school for her. Have you found any private schools that you may be considering? I am also concerned about the distance of the my daughters school and the University. I plan to make the move over to PR in mid- July to "Set It Off"..Looking for all responses....

    Hello everyone!

    I purchased my plane ticket for PR a couple weeks ago. I'll be there the beginning of May. I've been looking at hotels on the beach and wondered which area is the best area thats not too too far from the school itself. I've map quested the school from the hotels and it tells me 10-15 minutes on a lot of them, but I know thats not an accurate time frame because its not including traffic and such. I know some of the students from La Inter live on the beach so could you all suggest an area? Thank you in advance!!!
