Tutoring at university: What to expect and what is expected.

I've just applied for my first university tutoring position (English Literature) and just want to know a bit about what I can expect. Example: how much of the preparation/material is guided by the lecturer of the course you end up tutoring for? Tutoring, like lecturing, seems to be one of those things that have no set route for getting into. While I'm sure the pay rate for tutoring on campus varies from one university (and probably, from one course) to another, is there an applicable standard rate to keep in mind? Any tips and advice will be greatly appreciated.

Which university is more prestigious, Georgetown or University of Washington?

Which school, Georgetown or University of Washington, do you think has more name recognition and prestige?

It's only 3 more weeks of my life - but what if I get hit by a bus? I want to enjoy myself but am trying to be sensible

I am 3 weeks away from finishing my first on-campus semester of university. After much though, last week I decided that I will definitely not be continuing my studies - and now I am struggling to motivate myself to finish the semester. How can I get motivated? Or should I just not bother (secretly want to hear this but know it's not sensible, and I should at least try to pass so as not to burn bridges) [more inside]
