So that everyone could get a good grade, but only one person tried? OP could've talked to the teacher, which would've been better than doing the whole project.

It's possible the OP finished their work but they couldn't have put the whole thing together with their group's parts unfinished. And even if they'd had time, people procrastinate. It's not some unheard of concept. Still shouldn't have to suffer the laziness of others.

It is possible that they were just supposed to finish up on what they'd done and everyone was needed to finish. If you have like an hour worth of work it isn't that horrible to wait until the last day.

I don't think OP deserved it considering they were actually trying to do the work. You don't know how long they had. I know sometimes we would get a huge project and only have 2 days to do it because they would have 4 people on 1 project. I would go to the teacher and explain what happened and see if you and only you could get extra credit or something.

Considering it was an important final project they probably had some time on their hands. OP should've talked with his project partners a few days before to make some finishing measures together, cause it takes some work to put your work and the work of your project partners together, otherwise the whole project just won't fit together plus it avoids situations like this.

At my school, some teachers would still fail a group even if one person DID do all the work, but the individual student's grade would be done appropriately.

Unfortunately, the grades are the same for all members of the team. That’s why I prefer to work alone whenever it is possible.

Yeah I also generally work alone, mainly because people only join my group because they know I'm smart enough to do it myself. The only time I work with groups now is when a group is required by the teacher, and I just take the top bidder (unless my friends are there). Someone once gave me $10 just to work with their group. Lol my economy teacher just said, "Its supply and demand."

Well like you said it was a 'big project'...so obviously you guys must've done some work before....instead of waiting till the last min...

Isn't there a way of checking with your school if there is a real snow day? Why didn't you just finish the project yourself? Sounds like you and your partners are both to blame.

Yeah, like #26 said, my school also doesn't cancel until the morning. One time they canceled 20 minutes before buses were sent out.

Why would you do your "big final project" the day before it's due? Aren't final projects usually given out earlier on near the beginning of the semester? That's how it always worked for me so that you'd have weeks to plan and prepare to get it all done.

Unhelpful Group-project members are the worst, and although it does suck that none of them would help you, you could have finished it up yourself and then told your teach what had happened. Maybe you would have passed while the rest of your group failed.

So you all waited to finish on the project to the last day? YDI on all of you. It doesn't even matter that your partners thought it would be snowday, you all should have finished the project sooner.
