For those with Sidley(chi) CBs, did you get self-identification emails? Got that from them yesterday but haven't heard anything else either way

I know this is probably a silly question, but it's looking like I'll have several callbacks on the first week of class unfortunately. Do we just email the professor sorry not sorry or something

Once you know how many you will have (maybe wait til the week before class starts to be sure), email each professor and tell them you apologize for the inconvenience but you'll miss X days. They will be understanding, but if you end up having to do second looks or something down the line (OCI lasts longer than you think) and miss more class they will be more forgiving if you were courteous at the outset.

Yeah definitely be deferential in your initial e-mails given that it's common practice for professors to let their students interview. If you run into a stickler you can then be firm and/or just drop the class.
