well... after months of contemplation... the academic powers that be decide to give her a B+. whether that's what the department recommended... or whether it's what the academic board adjusted it to be... i suppose that is probably about the best you are allowed to do when you weren't coming in on full scholarship living in one of the residential colleges...
and there it is.
i'll get my script and take a look...
without seeing other scripts i don't have any thing to go off. i suspect it is probably the last chunk of the course where they expected us to regurgitate a bunch of stuff back that was learned last year / was learned concurrently in other classes.
maybe i messed things up more than i supposed...
i don't expect so.
the last guy things oddly. he asked us to draw in the hippocampus in a midsaggital view and i pointed out that the hippocampus isn't visible in midsaggital view. for no marks out of four. then he asked us to come up with a novel experiment for something... which was impossible for me... i mean... do you know how hard it is for people to come up with workable experiments for their PhD? i wouldn't know where to begin coming up with a hair brained idea at undergraduate level. or perhaps i was supposed to regurgitate an idea from somewhere? f*ck knows what he wanted...
then we were asked to draw a picture of... and the only way i could see to parse the question was to draw 8 pictures. like wtf?
i guess some people did well.
everyone, actually. everyone did better in his section than the sections before... except for me. huh.
i don't feel so good about this, anymore.
i think 3rd year is going to be impossible.
all of it, to be honest.
there really isn't much in the way of university left in the university anymore.
and i think i'm kidding myself to think that there is anything at all in the way of excellence... arete... worth... in healthcare.
this really is b*llsh*t.
