Buying a $60,000 car without test driving it is like graduating from Framingham State University without doing an internship.
Think about it. If you had to make an investment in a $60,000 car, you would do everything you could to learn all about it. You would drive it, research it, talk about it with friends and family.
By the time you graduate you will have spent roughly $60,000 on your education. You'd be crazy not to "test drive" your career through an internship (co-op, student teach, practicum). No matter what you call it, ultimately the goal is to gain experience.
