    As a general rule, the better it felt when you said it, the more trouble it's going to get you into.

    thanks yoda,
    two of my friends were actually getting married in the same month and both asked me to stand up... I am just worried that in making my decision to attend auc I would be missing out on things like this for the time I am there...

    thanks again

    in my time on the island i missed two wedding that i was asked to stand-in including one in whitch i was to be the best man. unfortantly the weddings were during a round of exams and i did not feel comfortalbe skipping and making up the exams.

    contact the school and get a copy of the attendence policy, dont depend on me, especally if you are planning on talking 2 seperate leaves of absences.

    as for the weddings you have to descide who and what is most important to you. friends and education.

    Leaving

    I had to miss a few days for my sister's wedding (I missed an exam during that time also). I got approval to miss the exam/classes in the deans office). There's a short form to fill out and Dean B. will sign it. I made up the exam at the start of the next semester.
