So when I enter my phd program next year, I'm going to be probably doing the usual 3 classes per semester for the first year thing. However, due to my department not.... well, having any TA positions, I won't have a TAship for the first year :P. Is it crazy to try to get an adjunct position at a CC or something and take 1 or 2 courses for some extra money? Would it affect my phd work too much, even for the 1st year? Is this done much? I will have my MS so I know I qualify for the positions.
