The whole thing sounds like a great adventure. It may set your FIRE date back but you could be dead next month. Nothing is guaranteed. Glad to hear you went for it. Good luck!

I drive to London on Thursday (500 miles, and I have to get up at 4:40am to take my daughter to the train station first). Registration is 9am on Friday; induction starts at 10:30am; first lecture 9am on Saturday. I have rented a room in a nice-sounding retired lady's house, sight-unseen. Yep, the adventure starts here...

Well, the first session was fun! But I'm probably going to have to convert to the two-year, part-time (tuition one weekend in four instead of one in two) format. Otherwise I'll never get the reading done.
