I am in kind of a bind and could use some advice.

NJU is only willing to give me a couple more days in which to accept or reject their offer to visit one more year. It was nice for them to do so, but in the general scheme of things, it makes no difference. None of these TT possibilities would have time to materialize before the final deadline.

Am I a terrible person for even considering the idea of signing the contract to hedge my bets but bailing if a TT job offer comes to me? I need to have a job next year, since the Spouse is leaving his. I’d rather it be a TT position, but beggars can’t be choosers.

What would you do? If you’ve been in this position before, your experience and advice is much appreciated.
