    2 semesters and leverage PayPal internship in getting another internship at another well known company.

    Take 2 semesters ! Try to find a better offer. Try keeping very light load in last semester. Enjoy the time. Trust me this time will be the best time of your life and it won’t come back again !

      It is much easier to go from intern to full time or to get hired as a new grad imo

    Take the offer. Tech crash pending. You’ll have a better shot of having and keeping your job if you’re employed. Don’t be greedy like the rest of blind.

      Fundamentals are all over blind. Why bother? Let’s see your fundamentals showing tech sector is not overvalued.

      That’s fair. I’ll throw one out there because I can’t stand to do this anymore. PE, the most basic measure of valuation compare tech to other sectors vs historical.

      Hint: it’s WAY higher and well above levels that indicate a crash.

      Now yours. I can do the research if you don’t feel like explaining. What’s your metric?

    Why do you want a better offer? If you like the team and job take it. If you do not like then it look for better offers. You do not want to end up with a better offer and hate your job
