Hi Steve, I would say it all depends on the broker. You should interview brokers now as if you have already received your license. If the sponsoring broker is one you would work for anyway, then it's not a horrible decision. You should try to give yourself a year anyway. It's not always beneficial to hop around.
I would also advise you to think if $200 is really a lot of money in the grand scheme of things. I would say my best advice would be that real estate school prepares you for NOTHING in the real world of selling real estate. I would start with a company that offers training and consider starting as an assistant or agent on a team. You will get leads and learn the ropes.
Feel free to call me anytime!
