Yeah, it's Corps pretty good program though. Teach you the skills you need and try to help you get a job once you graduate. And if you don't have ahigh school diploma or GED they help you with getting that too. Dudes at the Maine one usually sneak out and bounce across the border to Canada on theweekends. Drink up there if you're 18 and all that. All in all it's great program you should look into.

You might as well go, bro. Sitting around doing nothing. They help alot and if you can find a friend to go with you they're usually pretty good abouttrying to get you guys in the same bunk (pause for people who still do that) and ya'll can complete it together.

I don't think it's the same exact day but I'm sure you can them and they'll fill you in on allowance and all that stuff.

My moms used to work at the Admission office on 3rd ave In the Bx. I been on campuses all over the Bx is a little old and I would say you need a certain levelof Maturity. A lot of the chicks have kids but hey they need a education too. I would say dont go local if you dont have to its to much of a distraction. Getout of your surroundings that would make it a lil easier for you to focus on what your there for, whatever program that maybe is probably located in anotherpart of the country. So go get away. be sure that job corp is what u wanna do cause its not a cake walk i think they give u like $50 every 2week allowance. Itsan awesome program for anyone between 16-24. I hope this info helps

Job Corps...been there done that. When I was there they were giving us like $16 and change every 2 weeks. Kats was glorifying that place like it was the bestthing known to man. They did sent me a $300 check for 3 months after I left. I guess it's good for you depending on ur situation.
