PS I live in Chicago.
I suppose if you would rather see your girlfriend instead of the library... well, that is simply up to you.
Seriously hinder? Absolutely not. If you get some time to study over the weekend, you should be fairly competitive. Chicago is only 4-5 hours away, and I know a number of the students have reasons to visit Chicago on a regular basis.
Also, Friday classes seem to get out reasonably early. I think it would be a great problem to have. You will have times you need lots of the weekend to study, but you should have ample opportunities to make your way back over the semester.
