Jury duty questions

So, yay, I've been summoned for jury duty. If it turns out I actually have to show up (that is, if they don't cancel my "group number" when I call the automated number on Monday night), then here's what I want to know--and I thought it best to ask you people instead of trying to get through to any actual government or courthouse numbers:

1) Is it true that all I have to do to get out of it is to develop strong opinions on whatever they ask? (Without committing perjury of course.)

2) If they want me to be a juror anyway, will the trial start relatively soon--like within a few days--or will they say, "Great, so show up on November 4th..."? If the latter is the case, then I can't do it--classes start at the end of the month and I have to be a T.A. But if they want me as a juror for a few days in mid-September then I'm perfectly available to judge my peers.

*sigh*...such a pain to cooperate with constitutional rights sometimes. :)
