Dude, I think it is like 18k for the 10 months you are there and that doesn't cover a place to live. The one is AZ is supposed to be better but the location is in the ghetto.
My friend just graduated 2 years ago and said AZ is great weather but HIGH crime.
We live near DC, so for him to say that the area must be bad!!

Checked into AMI a long time ago and I think You're definitely in the ballpark on price.

I wonder if MMI in Orlando is on Par with Arizona? and any cheaper?

and you wont make much more than 35k no matter where you live unless you open your own shop. I would love to do this for a living but I make more $$$ now at age 26 so it really isn't worth the time for me to do it.

Not to mention, once you start doing it for a job, you won't enjoy working on your own bike as much.....
