Don't just sign up for MSA, take some Egyptian Coloquial Arabic as well. It will make your life in Cairo so much easier.

Take time to explore Cairo. A cheap place to stay downtown is Dahab Hostel. Uber to school at Khan el Khalili is cheap (prepare to learn how to cross the street and walk a bit of a distance).
