#82 - Then you contact your professor and explain why you weren't at the first day. Usually they'll excuse you for not attending. If you're just a no-show though, your spot goes to the next person on the waiting list.

Back in high school, I had a recurring dream where I'd be at school naked. Sometime I'd be embarrassed and hiding behind things, other times I'd just own it and go around to all my classes like that

I graduated in '09 and I have nightmares where I'm naked at school, accidentally missed school....I even have some where I'm running late so I drive my car instead of taking the bus (I got my license after graduation).

My recurring nightmare is showing up for an exam, prepared for one subject but turns out I got the date wrong and it's some other subject I haven't even started preparing for :(

22 was actually referring to the fact that the OP wanted to be one week early, but was one week late, thus making it a 2 week difference.

I agree with 5. college is kind of a big deal. its the adult world of responsibilities and deadlines. having late assignments, not knowing what chapter youre in, or even showing up a week late for the first day is unacceptable. it takes a lot to succeed in college.

I thought most university classes don't take attendance? At my school profs don't care. Some just post the notes online anyways, so you can not go to class at all and still get a good grade on the final.

48, I feel sorry for anyone who has those teachers. That is a sure sign that they're just phoning it in after they've been tenured, waiting for the day they can retire. That's no way to teach. The best professor I've ever had was a chemistry professor right out of grad school. He hated PowerPoint and taught from his own handwritten lecture notes. He made chemistry fun and easy to understand, and I had hated it until that point. That's the mark of a good professor.

Yes they take roll the first day of class cause other students are trying to crash it. I just graduated from a university. In fact after three absences they drop your grade a full letter. That sucked!

65, I just graduated from a university as well. At my university, attendance was based on the professor's preference. Some took attendance because that certain college made them, some took attendance because they liked to knock your grade down if you were absent, and some just didn't give a shit because it's on you if you don't show up.

At my school, its illegal for a professor to change your grade due to attendance. They just started that last year & im glad because I have really bad asthma so i miss a few days a month but i make up everything & still get great grades on exams & projects. it would suck for me to fail because I wasnt there.

Yea some of my professors took roll, some didn't, some did knock down my grade if I missed 3 classes. But I'm saying every class I took, took roll the first week and if you weren't there they dropped you so others who were trying to crash the course could.
