OK guys. Need serious advice and stuff. I was invited to go to an international scholar laureate ten day tour of technology and engineering opportunities in China. Trip is in early June, will cost about 4,000$, and will require me to (finally) get a passport. But there is a WHOLE DAY in Aerospace, and four flights(I LOVE flying). I will have time to dick around exploring Beijing, Yichang, and Shanghai. I will get to actually tour the facilities for a number of different project types in addition to the AEROSPACE one. They will have speakers and whatnot. While I am NOT an engineer, I think this is still a good opportunity for a Physics person, and would look good on an application to MIT. I also can choose to have this be for college credit. Two credits, through George Mason University. Thoughts? I have never been out of the country(not for lack of desire to, though).
