My professor for my Matlab programming class told us that we needn't come to lecture if we felt like we were ahead; we could just turn in the lab assignments. I took his advice, and I'm still fine on the labs, but it turns out I missed A crucial announcment: the midterm.
So now instead of having a definate A, I can get only a C. And I can only blame myself and my un-robust email-checking habits.
I'm gonna go talk with him on monday to see if I can do something to compensate. Maybe he'll be impressed with my minsweeper game.
