about final exams

<p>so my dad is trying to book my flights home over winter break so I looked at the final exam schedule, my question is:</p>

<p>does writing the essay have a final exam? or does it just have a final paper? (which is before finals week)</p>

<p>a final paper, the due date can vary. sometimes it's the last class meeting, sometimes it's 5PM on some random day.</p>
