Experience with location Rockville, MD was negative.
Rockville is a nice town where you have a lot of shops for buying clothes and all sorts of gadgets, but also the market for the supply of food. Itself is quite peaceful and there is no possibility to go out, but given that the D.C. only some 20-30 minutes by subway, this is an excellent option. There are all clubs and nightlife can be very interesting. What is good, are gatherings and parties organized by students whose apartments are in a relatively close distance. People are generally nice, of course there are always exceptions. The climate is relatively similar to ours, but the rain and thunder could be common. As for the extra work, there is generally more capable men who have the ability to work in nightclubs as a security guard. For girls depends, if you are on your primary business busy from morning to evening, technically do not have time for another job. Although, if the effort can work as hostesses, also in clubs, or to keep the children. Lifeguards at the pools can take advantage of the possibility of giving swimming lessons or to hold a Zumba (for which you do not need some knowledge or a license, just ask some granny who want to stay in shape if they are interested :)).
