First, thanks for the responses. I appreciate the insight.Second, I was planning on going to my girlfriend's house because she is going to medical school and, at that point, we would not have seen each other for quite a while. Originally, I was going to go Wednesday to Saturday; however, due to the prices, it looks like it is going to be Thursday morning until either Friday or Saturday night. It seems as though it might be best to head back to school Friday night based on your comments.Third, last year my Digital Signal Processing professor (yes, I was engineering, hence the name...BME=Biomedical Engineering) gave us a test at 6:25 pm the night before Thanksgiving. My flight home was supposed to leave at 4:00 pm, but I had to cancel it and take the test. Needless to say I was pissed off, but I took the test and ended up getting a 99. That is why I am trying to plan this far ahead: 1) so that I don't get screwed and 2) so that I have time to do work during the break.Thank you again for your reponses.
