    Class Cutting

    I should be in class. I am paying for it, I know I need to get the information, but I decided that a shower and shave would be better. Why make this decision? Who knows...All I know is that it is an entry level visual communications class that I could pass with my right hand tied behind me blindfolded. The important part, the lab, is tomorrow. I guess I'll make it to that one...for now, however, is a wonderful 3 hour layover that I have created for myself!

    I went to the classes that had an attendance requirement, the others I skipped, unless there were labs. Don't get me wrong, I made sure that I wasn't missing much and then opted for not showing up. We had small classes and I could get the notes from someone or just read the book. Now that I think about it, I never bought the books either. A good friend of mine was in all my business classes and it's amazing how far flirting will get you. Needless to say, I graduated, got a degree and have a job. As long as you passed, that's all that matters. I had fun destroying my liver.

    It depends. If you want to get one of those ultra high end secret jobs at electric boat designing the pressure hull on the seawolf nuclear attack submarine, you probably should go to your classes, get the 4.0, sleep with your professor and dean to somehow get a 5.0, dot your i's and cross your t's. Otherwise, my last semester I cut class like crazy and was less stressed and did better on exams than I ever did.

    Yes, but you have to know people. The problem with Bozeman is that there are 10,000 students, and when they graduate, they are all looking for jobs in Bozeman as well. Market it tough, luckily I knew someone.

    Slvoid, you have a point. I don't want my doctor to have skipped a lot of classes in college.

    After my first organic chem class I only returned on test day. Why? because there were 300 people in the class and the prof who was far more interested in his research simply opened the text and started reading. Hmmm I thought, I can do this on my own time. However if a class is focused in your major you'd better show up...

    Aha. We're about ready to move west, but kindof have to know that we'll be able to support ourselves. MT might be too cold for my girlfriend anyway. Grrr.

    I've never been able to bring myself to intentionally skip class without a good reason. Just in case, I usually have some of my other homework with me, and I sit near the back so I won't get noticed if intro to philosophy becomes study time for fluid mechanics. Helps keep me awake sometimes.
