Please use this spreadsheet to sign up for your conference during the week of November 30.

There are a few rules for this spreadsheet: please follow them.

1. Sign up for one spot and one spot only. If you change your mind, sign up for a new blank timeslot and remove your name from your old one.

2. Don’t steal someone else’s spot by deleting their name and typing yours in instead. If you really need a specific timeslot, sign up early!

3. Don’t create new timeslots! If you’re late to the party and you don’t find a timeslot you like, the solution is NOT to randomly create a new timeslot!

4. Don’t delete the breaks! You want your professor to be alert and attentive during your conference, right?

(Rules 2, 3, and 4 all relate to the problem of finding a timeslot. If you are having a lot of trouble finding an existing open timeslot that works for you, email me and let’s strategize.)

5. When it comes time for your conference, please wait in the hallway a few steps away from my office, near classrooms B-336 and B-337. This is for everyone’s privacy during the conference. Please try to arrive 5 minutes early, but don’t come directly to my office, because someone else is probably doing their conference. Just wait in the hallway and I’ll let you know when we’re ready to go. When you’re waiting, please wait quietly, in order to be kind to my office neighbors. If five minutes after your scheduled conference time have passed, (in other words, if you were scheduled for 4:30 and it’s now 4:35) please come and knock on my door and let me know you’re waiting.

Please come to your conference with a problem that you are encountering in working on your final project.  You are encouraged to bring printouts of drafts, or your laptop or tablet, so that we can work together to help to advance your progress on the project.
