Any opinions/reviews on Skydive U?
Considering doing my first 10 jumps after AFP graduation with the Skydive U coach, Mollie, at XKeys. Anyone gone through it either there or at other locations? Just wondering if it's worth the $71/jump price? ($710 for 10 jumps).
Also, if anyone's interested in sharing the price with me, it's $44/each if I get one other person and $36/each if I get 2. I'd be looking to do the 10 jumps over the weekend either next weekend (6/30, 31) or the one after that. Provided I can get down there on some low wind days to get AFP done before that.

Mollie is excellent, I did 3 jumps with her at X-Keys as part of my A license requirements. We may have met there, it was just about 2 months ago. You get a LOT of prep time with her on the ground, which helps a lot, and she is generally a very good instructor and motivator. The improvement I felt from just 3 jumps was pretty striking.
So: lots of fun and well worth the $70/jump. Ten jumps is a slightly different equation though. And I must admit I did have a little more fun on the "freefly safety jump" with Heath. Basically you try to sit and if you're like me you spend most of the time on your back.
I did 55 jumps with Sky Dive U in Eloy last October wuth the Director Stephan Lipp.All on video and did a dozen 4 & 6 ways in the end. Got really comfortable and have a lot more knowledge than someone with twice as many jumps. I feel quality not quantity is the way to go but expect to drop a bomb. Recommended!
