Frankly, I don't understand why there is a question.  Unpaid internships don't contribute to paying off student loans.  And if you take any job in the States, you'll have to save up to be able to afford a trip to England.  Here you are being offered the moral equivalent of a paid vacation.

Take a week off and go to Scotland and find where they keep the *good* booze.
