It is usually not recommended due to your class schedule and time commitment needed to study. My program did not come out and say we can't work, but it did say that work related obligations were not an excuse for missing or not completing academic obligations.

That’s good to know. Thank you for responding.

It was a rule at my friends school. If they heard any rumors of someone working they would bring them in for discussion or make them go to extra study hours.

Absolutely yes, did we pay attention to it no.

PA school is no joke. I would equate it to carrying a double load in college. Time management is essential and the key to success.
I had classmates who lost relationships, marriages, etc.

Hi fishes,
I have almost 5YoE as developer. I was watching shark tank and wondering what type of thinking & habits one must have to spot a gap in the market and build business around it. Feeling like there's no innovation & thirst left anymore, getting bored to work similar tasks over and over. What to do?!
