why would you ever quote that terribly long post? haha. it took me so long to scroll past it that i started laughing midway.
edit: also, i'm not an expert on every university ever, but at UF, it would be too late to get college credit for spring semester for an internship. you have to be signed up for an "internship class" that's worth the amount of credit you'd be getting. it's past drop/add week, so you'd be screwed and not able to get credit for this semester already.
