I've just been offered a commercial modeling contract by one of the best modeling agencies in Miami. Problem is Im a full time grad student. I want to balance both but some of my close friends say that it will interfere with school. The thing is Im 25 and I may never get this opportunity again or even want it when I graduate. I know some of you balleretes here are models. What are your takes on it?

What are you studying in grad school? How far along are you? Do your program offer online or non-traditonal class schedules?

No it doesn't. Im doing a program in Social Work. I could probably talk to my supervisor but I don't know if castings are by appointment or their within a block of time. If I don't make my castings, I could get dropped.
Its also my first semester. I have a 14 months to go.

This is the most 'sane' advice you've given on here Tone.

@Sweetie, I would say do both, but talk to your school and try to work something out. Try to do a lighter course load. Good luck.

Ok, I agree talk to the agency to see how they do your casting and let them know you are in school,also talk to your school. Many programs have classes set-up where you can do independent study. That way you can continue with your studies without having to be in class.

Also try to end out this semester since it's only a few weeks to go. After that take 1 class.  

All right. thanks everyone. I consider all my options.
Thank You destiny
Make sure you have attorney review the contact or could be signing your life (and your money) away.
Congrats on the modeling contract by the way......start off right and save that money :)
