REVIEW: 2012 Jetta TDI SE

Last weekend, I made a trip back to college after spending all summer in NYC. I needed to swing back to rural Pennsylvania to pick up a few boxes I had left there in storage for the summer.

Make the jump for answers to all of your intern related questions and an intern’s experience at a start up.
