WB Ian. I know zero about this but why not just keep going with your pracs and if it changes and you have to go to Charleston, you'll be one step up on those that didn't start on their pracs and you can enjoy a nice trip to Charleston. Anyway, we're always saying never pass up an opportunity to go to a school. I can't imagine any part of training for it and then have to go to a school anyway as being a bad thing!
Just my two cents, as I said I know nothing about this but I only see a win/win situation. If I'm looking at it the wrong way, please tell me... I'm serious, not picking on you. Just looking at it in an educational way. :)
