    Is it quicker to get into Job Corps as a non resident student rather than a residential student?

    I live close to a Job Corps center that I am interested in applying, but I want to start right away! From what I've heard there is a wait list for students that are applying as residential students, it seems the wait list is about 6 months long! I want to know if there is the same wait list for students that want to be a non-res...I know the reason why it's so long is because they don't have enough room to accommodate everyone, so the wait list is pretty long!! Is it the same for non-res?

    I am not sure about which is quicker but I would say the non residential student as there is a waiting list to live in their residential facilities and they have a screening process.  THey may not be as picky about someone not living as a resident.

    I would imagine a non-res student could get in quicker as there would not have to be the added expense of room and board for said student.

    I can't be certain though. It depends on the center itself and who is making the decisions.
