In 24 Hours...
This professor has been interesting. Listening to the lectures made me realize I'm a linguistics snob. I won't miss that part of the course. For a class that I probably wouldn't have taken if it wasn't for the degree requirements, I was pleasantly surprised at how much foundation in the subject matter I had. It probably was a good way to get back into school, with a professor that was unyielding in the deadlines.
That proved to be a problem during the week from hell, when Ed was in the hospital, I was sick and my laptop died. I was denied an extension of a deadline and missed one assignment that counted for 6% of the grade.
Since then, I've achieved a 99.1% weighted average of the assignments I have completed. The criteria vary from professor to professor, but in this class, I need to score a 93.1 overall to earn an A in the class. What does this mean? If I obtain a perfect score on the final, I'll have the A.
Otherwise, it'll be a B+.
I know a B+ is nothing to sneeze at, but I really want that A.
