Today, I received an email from my professor asking me not to jump ahead on assignments as it makes the other students look bad. FML

For real! What college do you attend op? Most professors encourage things like that.

I always finish of my assignments in the last minute.. I work better under pressure.

I think it was Mark Twain who said, "If it weren't for the last minute, nothing would get done."

I forget who said it, but I'll say it again, "I wait 'til the last minute because I will be older, therefore wiser."

As a student... go **** yourself. Just my opinion.

Eh, not really. If his other students look bad as a whole, it makes it look like he's just doing a bad job.

That's because he's trying to hide the fact he is a bad teacher. Some teachers were like this to me on high school. And those were only in the classes that no one really learned a thing.

It's an American college. Free thought and individual expression are the antithesis of modern academia.

59- What college in America have you been too?

Since this about college I have to say, "you meant to, not too"

Whatever happened to school being for learning, anymore? Now it's all politics. This is probably the same teacher that would have you leave the room for correcting their mistake.

Well the professor might feel that OP is discouraging the other students and/or inadvertently pressuring them to do the same.

Perhaps the other students should pick up their game, get their thumbs out of their arses and be productive in a timely and efficient manner? [Wow, parent mode on! lol] Initiative, organization, planning, self discipline and elbow grease are some of the skills needed if you want to be a high academic achiever and push the scholastic boundaries so you can be all you can be. One does not get far resting on ones' laurels.

When I was a kid and didn't know the meaning of something, I would ask my mum who would tell me to look it up for myself. And we didn't have computers or smart phones to get the answer in an instant. There was a book called a dictionary & it had the information I needed to learn the meaning or spelling of something without having to worry if it was from a reliable source or edited by some punk with a computer. Seek and ye shall find.

Apparently being a slacker and doing jack shit are the preferred traits in a student these days... Hell yea!

@25 Chhhyeah dude, I totally like agree and shit.

I had a friend that dropped a class because she couldn't work ahead. I, on the other hand, dropped classes because I couldn't do the work.

Anyone can do the work. I'm guessing you just chose not to try or get a tutor.

I call bullshit to those who say anyone can do the work. There's more than just 'doing the work.'

In my experience, people who can't do the work study their asses off to try- usually some of the best people ever. The assholes who don't turn shit in is because they'd rather play Xbox or see their girlfriends, not because they can't do it.

When I started college my advisor said I would be ready for the calculus program even though I had only taken precalculus in high school. The first assignment my professor started with, "If you're in this class you should already know..." And listed off 15 things with only one I had ever even heard of. I was at least 15 classes behind the first week. Sooooo... Needless to say I dropped that class.

Well, luckily you live your own life, achieving your own goals, and you shouldn't have to worry about the achievements of your fellow students. Professors should encourage their students, not hold them back!
