    If you sign believing you will stay there long-term, and then subsequently change your mind, that's fine.

    If you sign knowing that you have no intention of staying long-term and already have other plans, then as a matter of honesty, you should not sign. While it is highly unlikely that an employer will pursue any legal action or anything like that, the fact that people of a certain age/stage regularly do this is why employers are so reluctant to hire them, ie students!

    It's fine, they can't tie you down, as long as you give notice you should be able to get your last pay check and they can even give you a reference, if required

    You can do whatever you want. The employer will probably expect a high turnover of employees.

    More than likely nothing bad will happen to you, it's just a question of morals and the possibility that they will write a bad reference. I'd do it too to be honest.

    Very unlikely. Circumstances change, if you have a better opportunity you should snap it up.
