Surprise!

--EDIT: I want opinions, please! --

So, I was chatting with mountainheather and Mike on AIM this afternoon when I got a very shocking e-mail. From IBM. It was a job offer. It still is a job offer. What I mean to say is, I now have 2 job offers for summer/fall co-ops. This of course, is AWFUL. Now, I must make an actual decision based on stuff. I've got a pros/cons thing going on:

Pros:
Lucent:
-- Familiar Environment
-- no need for room or board
-- Familiar co-workers
-- Salaried pay
-- New technologies
-- Close to family, friends, and beach. :-)
-- More responsibilities

Cons:
Lucent:
$17.25/hour
less technical environment

Pros:
IBM:
-- New Environment
-- New Co-workers
-- more technical position
-- $21.75/hour
-- 5 paid sick days and time-and-a-half overtime
-- stable company

Cons:
IBM:
-- EXTREME Distance
-- Must pay for room/board
-- possible apartment issues
-- pay-per-hour
-- possible inadequate background (If we don't get to Perl in class!!!)
