Things that are pissing you off. - Page 3085

I understand it's pretty annoying, but what does it really change? Since it sounds like he's already ruled out the idea of giving you a heads up on it you're really only adding the possibility of an exam. There is no plus side, so I don't see the point of making a war out of it.

Because you don't play tens of thousands for an education that is just a pisstake.

I never minded having exams when I was a student. They were a great way to demonstrate that I was better at the subject than the majority of my fellow students and thus be awarded superior grades.

Saw a nice apartment today. 1BR, big kitchen, fireplace, in a nice brownstone walk-up. I could swing it financially but money would be a little tighter than I'd like.

Having a roommate is frustrating for me, but in the end it's more important to save money and cut down on expenses. But living alone is cooler frown.gif

Normally it's not individual professors who set final exam dates. And there's a good reason for that. I agree that Biscotti would be within his rights to complain if Saturday was not in fact the scheduled exam day.

Also, speaking as a professor, I would never make all my students come to class for a final exam and then just dismiss them. That is really disrespectful of the students' time, even if it's on a weekday.

I know that the final exam schedule is usually set by the university, but I also know that profs don't always adhere to it. If this is one of those cases, then he should definitely complain.

I agree with you that it's disrespectful to have students come for an exam to find that there isn't one.

Sorry, I didn't mean to suggest that you didn't know that. I quoted you because I was agreeing with you.

Catching a head cold last week, first time in three years I have been sick, the timing could not have been worse.

Yes, we're of the same mind about this. This situation hit one of my hot buttons because of some experiences I had with profs.

God created Mondays just as He created the other days of the week. You should rejoice on Mondays. I know I do.
