I've been invited to interview at school X, but if I were to be successful (the whole point of interviews!), I would be passing up the opportunity to apply for a school I desperately want to work for and am confident I could do a good job for. I've spent a good few hours hashing this out with my father tonight- he fails to see why I can't go to school X, accept the job if offered and then pull out if I got the job at Dream School. (We've agreed to disagree on this matter- I know it's not an option, and it's not my style anyway!)(Besides, it would cost me/him a bomb to get to school X, which seems a waste of money just to say "no".) What to do? I have to choose to either accept school X and not go in for Dream School, or withdraw from school X and risk being back at square one if I don't get Dream School. Current solution: eat a stackload of chocolate and put the decision off until tomorrow.
