Also, exams will be from 12/7-13, I believe, but will the library be open during break? Do a lot of people use Thanksgiving break to get some extra studying done?
Sorry about all the questions
People at other schools do. We only have two classes though. If you keep up with outlining you don't need to waste Thanksgiving burning yourself out-- elements is really indeterminate and really shouldn't be studied for hard-- I didn't and got a great grade. Civ Pro I may be a type test, depending on your faculty member, so you might want to brush up on your typing speed over Thanksgiving break.
Thanks! Then I guess I'll book my flights based on cheapest/least insanely crowded dates instead of planning to camp out in the library during the break.
I'll jump in here to support this one as well. I would say most of the class left town for Thanksgiving break last year, and the people I know who stayed in town did so because they're from Chicago—not so that they can study.
I left town. I think I studied Civ Pro for about 2-3 hours Saturday morning after Thanksgiving and that was it. When I got back I didn't feel behind at all. You're going to be shocked at how much time you have to study for your first two exams. Way too much time. So definitely enjoy every bit of Thanksgiving you can! (Because Winter and Spring quarter will not be as nice...)
