I found figuring out how to best spend time in college/grad school early on really helped me be successful in everything I cared about. If I may offer a suggestion, you might consider studying in the library. I never knew just how much distractions in my room (and later, as faculty, my office) ate away at my efficiency until I tried hitting the library between classes.
I also used to stash some clean clothes in a locker in the student center and some stuff to clean up for the days that I ran to class. Otherwise, no run. Sad face.
Good luck and enjoy the experience. Thanks for sharing your thoughts - having been to a school with mostly guys, I'm enjoying your perspective.
I don't know what kind of "typical" student your Prof is talking about because I doubt the problem sets will take even half that time.
Thanks for the advice guys. Yeah the problem with running to class is that it would only take 3-5 minutes. And we'll see about calc Robbie! So far so good.
Yeah, let's hope you can find a bit more than 3 mins. Forgot you probably live on campus!
