    return flight..?

    Advertisements



    hello all! i am an accepted student, starting in may 2009. can anyone advise as to when I should be booking a return flight? on AUA's website, it's stated that the last day for finals is the 18th. however, the "end of the semester" is the 21st. how often do finals extend beyond the normal date for finals (ie, after the 18th)?

    thanks in advance!

    If your starting MED1 your last final will be the Monday AFTER shelf week, which is the 17th. this means you can book a flight for the 18th

    i booked my return flight for the 19th. in addition to booking the flight though, i purchased insurance, which came out to around $31. much cheaper to buy the insurance at that rate, than cancel your flight if necessary and book a new one. continental's rate (direct flight to newark) was $150 fyi...
