the rest; you can figure it out from there.
Please do not hesitate to come to my office during office hours. Office hours will usually be very busy right before an assignment is due; if you start the assignments early and come to my office well before they are due, you have a better chance of avoiding the rush. Due to my busy schedule, I cannot accept drop-ins outside of office hours. I will also be available by appointment; please send me email to set one up. Please note that I may not be able to accept all requests for appointments, especially around program due dates. If you do wish to see me outside of office hours, you need to make an appointment.
