School Daze

Postby 42th » Mon Aug 30, 2010 1:29 am

I know we used to have a school thread around here somewhere.... >.>

But anyway, I bring this up because I've just finished up my first full week of classes. My big accomplishment/story of this semester so far is thus: Due to complications from last semester, I had to ask two of my professors this semester if I could be in their classes this (fall) semester. One said yes, the other no. Heartbroken, I met with him face to face to discuss the matter, and he still said no. SO, ultimately I beat the system by asking if I could audit his class, and he said yes! :3

I thought that meant you got no credits for the class. How does that help?

See this is all part of my evil plan, muwhahahah...

It's true that I get no credit, but this is a class I absolutely have to take at some point (presumably next semester). So basically, I'll be entering the class (officially) next semester with a full set of notes, bunch of tests and quizzes I can study from, having seen all the material at least once, etc. So in theory, when I actually have to take the class, it will be that much easier.

Well then good luck with it. I hope it goes well.

That's some fine detective work there.

Man, sometimes in class I am not sure if I am asleep, or if my mind just turned off from boredom.

I may have disproven reality during Biology class today, but I forgot it right after I woke up.

your plan sounds vaguely like you have to take the class twice for no reason to me. >>

Well, the thing is he has to take this class, most likely to complete his degree. The problem is that this year/semester, he was not accepted into it. So, he's been given permission to hang around in the back of said class and take notes, and not have to worry about assessments. So next semester, when he's doing it for reals, he'll already have a comprehensive set of notes to work with, and he will already know what the course has in store. Not what I'd do, but a good plan none the less.
