A close friend of mine is looking for an internship come fall. An acquaintance of ours is spending the summer at a prop shop. I want to offer him some insight on "prop shops". Personally I find it a little surreal that shops offer to "bankroll" students... Any thoughts on how valuable it is taking an internship at a prop shop; experience (ie what you learn) and credential-wise.

It depends ALOT on what shop. They range from legit places like DRW, Optiver, CTC etc. to basically trading arcades where you have to put money down. If you're at a legit place, it would be an awesome experience and great for credentials. The interview process at those places is insane.
