SKIP AND CALL THEM.

...but really. Can you not call them before your next class and chat, and if you're late just apologize to the professor afterwards and let him know that you received an unexpected interview call for scholarships at a top school. He'll understand.

Edit: I'm not saying this only because it's what I'd do (which it is), but if they're calling about serious money the LAST thing I'd want them to do is wait around because you're too busy. Class be damned!

Skip class duhhh! haha but I can't remember where you live so maybe their office will still be open by the time you get out of class because of the time difference. Good Luck!

edit: Darn Eskimo beat me!

Yes. Unless you have a dictator for a professor, they will understand. This is likely far more important than class.

:shock: You know I've stalked Chi hardcore, and I haven't heard of this. It can't possibly be bad, though!


Knock isnt the first to get it.. this is like the pre-rubenstein call. I havent received one :( :(

rubensteins?? how exciting! Man, I hope Chicago does their decisions earlier than later this week so I can just be done with waiting on them. I'm hoping that me being stuck at 12/23 doesn't spell doom for me, but either way I want to know!

Congrats on the full riiiiiiiiides!

lol we need to confirm whether that person meant they got the rubenstein call or was just commenting on calls going out.

I lost my phone a couple of nights ago (in the snow) and wont be home to get my backup one til Sunday night so Im anxiously watching these developments.

AHHHH RUBENSTEIN










is something people shouldn't yell in forums without placing the yelling in context. If you got one, jdstl, congrats!

I would like a ruby as I'm affectionately calling it.
