Hard to argue with that choice! Sounds like a plan.
Now time to start cramming - and I'm not talking about your schoolwork, although I suppose that's important too.
Read as much as you can on tailwater fisheries in general, they are a completely different animal from free-running rivers (went through this personally moving from PA to UT). And I'm sure there are books, websites, etc. 100% dedicated to the San Juan River being that it is a destination fishery.
Get ready to do some serious midge fishing.
Most important of all. Locate the best/closest fly shop to where you'll be going. Chat'em up ahead of time and spend a few bucks there to tap the local knowledge.
Good luck, tight lines, and look forward to hearing the story!
