Well, I guess it does now. I've mentioned that the book report due date was extended for my one class, which was good. However, that class is tiddly winks compared to my Database Concepts class where we are programming a database in C++ (Due Nov 4) and also have a 30-page research paper (Due Nov 11). Oh, and it's single-spaced. :-]
Yesterday in class the topic was mentioned of extension. The TA said he highly doubted there would be any change. But today, after discussing it with the professor, the TA emailed us and the dates are now Nov 11 and Nov 18 respectively.
Still a lot of work to do, but this is quite a relief.
A blessing from the Lord!
