I know many of you GTers are students, or employed in academia. Does anyone have experience with asking for extensions on assignments due to extenuating circumstances? Should I just approach my instructors about what is going on and hope they'll be understanding? My thinking is, over the next week, my number one priority is getting the fuck out of this house and in somewhere I will be safe. I have some papers due, and I want to make sure I set aside time to complete them satisfactorily, but I have to leave where I'm at as soon as possible. See my post below for details on the situation if needed. Thoughts?
