Would you survive my school? (revision)

by: m3rcy616

Ya, just felt like redoing it.
The important thing to note here, is I'm in college for a lutherie course. (Guitar building, to simplify it.)
That means woodworking.
Within the next year, I will have three lutherie certificates. And them I'm off to an audio engineering course I have my eye on.

For those who don't read this, I'll pretty much explain this through the questions.

  1. 1

    I'm a college student, so I only have classes two days a week. However, because of this, my wednesdays are 10 hours of school, not including travel time. Would you be able to handle this?

  2. 2

    The other day I have class is on saturday mornings, it's five hours of class, between 8:30am and 1:30 pm. Could you handle this?

  3. 3

    Because it's a work shop, there is a safety test each fall, or if it's your first semester. (It used to be each semester.) If you fail this test twice in a row, you get kicked out of the shop.

  4. 4

    Woodworking like I do at class involves use of power tools and hand tools, instructors help teach the basics of each, but it's up to students to really learn how to use each tool. Can you do this.

  5. 5

    One of my classes is Inlay: making a design in wood with small pieces of material, like a puzzle. It takes a lot of attention to detail, and ability to make and work with really small pieces.

  6. 6

    My other class is steel string: building a steel string guitar, inso 14 weeks. It's based on progression with the tools and materials, but a finished guitar is a big plus.

  7. 7

    Because of the use of tools, every student must adhere to the dress code, for safety. This means long hair tied back, nothing loose or dangly, closed toe shoes, safety glasses, etc.

  8. 8

    Because of how short the time frame is to complete projects, classes require a lot of actual studying before class, in order to be prepaired. Can you handle that?

  9. 9

    Last question: It's 16 miles to school for me, one way. It's about a 45 minute drive.
