A pleasingly candid account of one scholar's experience, by Tess Wilkinson-Ryan (Penn). When I visited at Chicago in Autumn 2006, my kids were 10, 7 and 4, and they, and my wife (who was practicing law in Austin), stayed in Austin, and I commuted roughly every other week back to Austin. (My father lived nearby in Austin, which sure helped in this situation!) It was an ordeal, but the nice thing about the quarter system is it was a short-lived ordeal.
