Cool deal man !
You never have a second chance, to make a first impression
Did you get to talk to any Students?
Up here in the North 99% of the Aircraft Maintenance Personnel go to college, I enjoyed my tome at it had some fun and learned a lot. and a lot about myself. of course schools do not teach you about the valuable grey line.
He told me to email him if I ever want to listen in on a class for a day, to see how the students act and how a typical day goes. I think I'll take him up on that.
1 more thing:
They told me that Duncan Aviation hires A & P's out of their school all the time (they gave me numbers, so they weren't lying) and that they start out $18 and hour. That sounds pretty good right out of school IMO They also say they have contacts with Delta, and have had students go there. I know it's over 2 years before I need to really worry about this, but what would be better?

Here's a true story about how a large school in Dallas recruited students Back in the 90s. The school would go to various airlines and offer consulting jobs to hangar managers in return for hiring a couple of students as repairman each month. Delta was the only one that took the deal. The school would then pick two students who just enrolled to get the jobs. They would then offer them a discount for wearing their airline uniforms to class. When the school gave tours they made sure to point out all the guys in their Delta uniforms that have been hired before graduation. Worked like a charm! The problem was that they were the only ones Delta hired for the next 5 years.
