My daughter is a freshman and probably has mono. Her blood work came back as "inconclusive" which is not unusual in the first week of acute symptoms. The problem with "inconclusive" is with things such as cardio-kick boxing, which would be forbidden with mono but is a registered PE class with attendance rules. The clinic said "come back if not better or get worse, take Advil for swollen tonsils, throat and fever".
How does Cornell handle such things as mono? Hers is currently severe enough to be ruining her sleep and as bad as a bad flu for 4 days now. She has a math prelim next week as well.
Is it just bad luck or does she have flexibility in rescheduling prelims or excused absences from cardio kick boxing? If she isn't allowed to take more PE this semester, does she have to take two classes in spring?
She's the type of student that would need physical restraints to make her miss a class.
