One prof mentioned at the beginning of the term (and in the syllabus) that we could postpone the midterm if the class wanted to. Seemed really friendly. A few days before the midterm, I asked him about it in class and he blew up and said that it was too late to postpone and that I should have mentioned something earlier. Made me feel like shit in front of everybody.

in ug, one of my favorite professors told me he's write me a LOR, had me send him a bunch of shit, then just quit responding to me.

in LS, fgt conlaw prof gave me one of the lowest grades in the class probably because i used to always show up 10 minutes late. it's way worse than all my other grades and fuckt my gpa.

I had a couple 1L classes where we had 100% blind graded finals, but the syllabi specified that the prof had discretion to boost grades up or down by one letter at their discretion.

I'm convinced our torts prof exercised his option to lower my grade as retribution because I was always laughing irl while talking on gchat every class. Dude had a freaky photographic memory.

You should have tried to discuss it with him - 10 minutes late isn't bad at all- I was habitually late for class. You could have made up legit reason for it too. It just seems like a really shitty reason for lowering a grade in LS and not proportional to your knowledge of the subject at all, or in any way related. Profs like that piss me off,

"down by one letter"

Wait, how does one grade that is merely one letter below the rest "fuck" your GPA?

Let's say 80 hours of LS classes. One letter grade is one GPA point. Distributed over 80 hours, 1/80, that lowers your total GPA by only .0125. That is not "fucking" your GPA bro.

Nothing too outrageous, but I took a seminar about the death penalty as a 3L. It was taught by a flaming libtard prof who would basically bully anyone who expressed a view that wasn't thoroughly anti death penalty. I played devil's advocate in class discussions just because nobody else was willing to. The prof would try to embarrass me and make me out to be an insensitive asshole for things like questioning the reasoning in Kennedy v Louisiana. The only other people who spoke in class were smug libtards. The whole experience made me leave LS with a sour taste in my mouth.

Two items:

1. I totally fucked up the midterm and first paper in a class (my own fault). The prof concluded that I was a fuckwit, so when I gave him a kind of complicated final paper topic, he steered me to a kind of retarded topic that you would give a high school kid. I expanded it a bit, wrote one of my better papers, turned it in, and went home. When grades came up, I got an Incomplete. I picked up my paper from his secretary and it had an A on it. I wrote to him and he told me to visit his office. He then interrogated me about the paper, how I wrote it, how I knew about X, etc. After about 15 minutes of me having no idea what he was talking about, he admitted that he thought I plagiarized but had no evidence for that other than that the paper was good. He changed the grade but handled the whole process like an asshole, which he was.

2. In a huge lecture class, I would sometimes read the textbook rather than listen to the prof (she wasn't adding a lot of value and this was before laptops in class). She called me out for that in the middle of class (seems like she was creating more distraction than I was). Then she fucked me on my first paper grade (it was actually decent) because she asked for 2 pages on "Compare and contrast Rome and Greece on 3 different axes" and I wrote 3.5 pages because how the fuck do you write that in 2 pages? I went to her office hours and asked totally reasonable questions like "How would you make this paper shorter?" and "What was wrong with the paper other than the length?" She flipped out and acted like I was one of those kids who had never gotten a grade below A and was whining for a boost, which I was not at all. Then when she came to my discussion section and was spouting nonsensical arguments, I started a huge debate with her rather than just smile and nod, which apparently was not part of her expectations for discussion section. At this point she called me in to meet with a dean, who was kind of like "why the fuck are we here?" but had to pretend to take it seriously. The only consequence the dean proposed was that the TA could grade any of my future work (they split the grading anyways) but in an effort to be reasonable I said that wouldn't be necessary. Due to good mid-term performance, I had a B+ at that point. I studied my ass off for the final and knocked it out of the park (I have always had a an accurate sense of this - when I felt like I fucked up a law school final the grade always came back bad). She gave me a B- for the course, when the entire grade was built of measured elements with no further discretion (10% paper, 20% test, etc.). I never talked to her again, although in hindsight I should have gone back to that dean.

This wasn't done to me but to a gf in college (also, it's not terrible, just kind of lulzy).

We went to a small lac and both majored in a dept. with only 4 faculty members. Hence, you spent a lot of time with the profs b/c they'd always invite you back to their office to shoot the shit.

The chair of the department used to play with himself with his hands in his pants pockets when female students would talk to him. One time in spring my gf went in to see him about some award she'd been given and he was doing his normal deal of playing pocket pool and when she left she said she noticed a big wet spot on his pant.

She was convinced he'd cum. I don't know b/c I wasn't there but she was really freaked out about it. I just thought it was pretty funny.

Also sort of made me want to be a prof.

Edit: Also, she was wearing a pretty short skirt that day and I'm reasonably sure that contributed to things.

Had a brutal case of mono, soph year of UG. Sickest ive ever been. Was taking 5 technical classes at the time. Asked one of my profs if i could take a midterm at another date, he essentially told me to fuck off and that if i couldnt take the test on time nor abide by the standards of healthy students, i should just drop the class (this would delay graduation for a year). After some talk like a beta, i managed to set up a retake but it was still while i was pretty sick.

I hate STEM profs. Aspie, arrogant fucks. In retrospect i should have complained to the dept head and caused more of a ruckus.

At first class, passed out a syllabi and exam schedule. Said we would be having 4 exams, and she would drop the worst exam score and take the average of 3.

Well, for whatever reason, probably did not like our class, near the end of the term she said that we all had to take a 2 hr final and had some bullshit method of rebalancing it.

I promptly emailed the dean and everything was made right within a matter of hours.

Too many moments in UG to count. I think the worst was in a network security class I took as a 3rd year CS major. This was like 2002-03 and they had just installed wifi in the lecture halls. This was a real novelty at the time. First day of class and about 1/3 of the bros were chilling in the back with their laptops, stoked at how much easier it is to dick around in class when you have the internet. Finally class is almost over and everyone is getting ready to leave. But oh wait, prof has a surprise. Before class started, he had one of his TAs set up a packet sniffer or something in the lecture hall control booth and hook it up to the brand new (unencrypted?) wifi access point. Then the prof, wearing full shit-eating grin, PUT THE PACKET LOG UP ON HIS OVERHEAD PROJECTOR. All of the network traffic that had come in or out of that classroom for the past 90 minutes, up there for the entire class to see. Sports scores, asian porn, IM chat logs, starcraft, ebay, everyone's private shit. The class was in shock. I think the prof's point was that you have to always assume that someone is watching your shit. Lesson learned that day. Never saw a single laptop the entire rest of the semester. It wasn't until like 1L second semester that I felt safe using internet in class again.

I took a persuasive writing course in college, and one of the final assignments was this 7-page paper on whatever the topic was. The rubric signed 10 points to formatting, 15 points to grammar/spelling/length, and the rest was divided up between whatever the substantive topics were.

my initial grade was a 71/100. He gave me a 0/10 for formatting because I had, literally, one formatting mistake on my title page. His comments were that the title page was such a basic thing that any mistake was inexcusable. He gave me 0/15 on the grammar part for good measure, again because of the formatting mistake. He have me a near perfect score on the substantive issues, and said verbatim, "this would have been an A paper if not for the formatting mistakes."

Anyway, I went to him and asked him to reconsider, on the basis that (1) a 0/10 on formatting did not acknowledge the correct formatting I used throughout the rest of the paper, and (2) the most I could have lost due to improper formatting was 10 points. So he said, "you know what, youre right, maybe was too harsh. Let me take another look." The new grade was even lower; he gave me like 5 points for formatting, 7 points for grammar, and chopped like 20 points out ofthe substantive sections. it was one point above passing, and he was really fucking sarcastic about it, saying shit like "i admire you standing up for your work and hope you enjoy the new grade. You've earned it."

He was exceedingly acrimonious about it. Just a huge dick in general. My father had been hospitalized unexpectedly in the beginning of the semester and I had to go home for like ten days. He let me make up the work but took huge points off for being late. So I was fighting an uphill battle with my grade all semester, which was why the original grade stung so much. If that had not happened I probably would have been a beta and ate the grade. But I was in a position between that and the final paper where my final grade might have been anywhere between a B+ and C-. I felt that he had fucked me earlier in the semester on a similar issue too, so I had to say something.

Thankfully I had the original paper with his original comments on them. I registered a complaint with his department chair and within the hour he was pretty much bribing me with a good grade in exchange for dropping the complaint.

this is all from the same professor:

i) arbitrarily assigned attendance/participation grade. what actually seemed to matter is if you were loud in discussion. the loudest in the class were the graduate students, which made it more difficult for the rest of the class to participate. considering he never learned my name, i'm not sure why he thinks i deserved a 55/100 in this category when i was there for a much greater percentage of the time. and he should have known participation would be driven down when grad students were doing most of the talking.

ii) his 4 and 6 year old kids showed up in the middle of our mid-term and stayed for about 20 minutes. climbing everywhere and making noise, it was a real distraction. i seriously considered writing the dean. someone else told me they did.

iii) like what another poster said, he accused me of unoriginal work on my final paper after doing somewhat poorly on the midterm. he had no idea where i got my information from, writing that he thought i must have gotten it from somewhere online, and saying he basically couldn't fully accuse me of anything improper because i had a bibliography which was properly formatted and included all relevant studies. he said the whole research paper was like "a wikipedia style entry." still, he gave me an A-. he seemed angry in his notes.

iv) giving me an absolutely SPS grade on my final and claiming he had already discarded them when i wanted to take a look at his grading.

Getting a B bc the prof was lazy, insecure and didn't think grades mattered.

Was doing Econ in undergrad and on track to get straight As in last two years (after fucking up first two years).

Took course in Economics of Environment or Ecology or some bullshit. Basically the professor would rant the whole class about crazy environmental theories like GMO causing autism and microwaves causing cancer. He would end each class with "but i'm not saying there's any evidence...I just want to inspire you to do the research."

Anyway the entire grade was based on a group presentation and my group put in substantial effort researching the harms from EM radiation (professor assigned topic). We basically said some EM can be carcinogenic in some cases and light pollution can affect migratory paths of insects but there is no evidence of power lines causing leukemia or cell phones causing tumors.

When pressed, he basically said our presentation didn't show him anything new (as if we were going to do some empirical study and find a smoking gun).

When further pressed, he would talk about how grades shouldn't matter because they feed into the income and consumption based economic paradigm that values GDP growth despite its unsustainability. Basically I think he knew his course was BS, he knew that he put 0 effort into lectures and taught absolutely nothing but didn't want people who took his class to get an easy A. I have a strong feeling everyone in the class got a straight up B and the prof saw this as some sort of rebellion against capitalism.

Last day of lecture before final exams next week. This was supposedly the "review period" during which no new material could be assigned. Rather than reviewing, prof decides to make the last lecture a "fun" topic, some shit that he and his TAs were researching. Prefaces lecture with, "don't worry, I doubt this will be on the final exam." About half the class leaves at this point, because there was already more than enough material from this class without trying to fit in some BS topic that won't even be on the exam. Prof proceeds to lecture on his favorite topic - some theoretical shit that wasn't in the textbook or the course pack.

Final exam next week: 4 hours, 3 questions, and 2 of those questions were from that last "fun" lecture which the prof "doubted" would be on the exam. Everyone got fucked. This was a higher-level applied math class and so it wasn't some essay exam that you could just BS your way through. Grades not curved because that's not how the real world works, or something.

BigStateU UG. In light of my upcoming spring graduation, I went to see a guidance counselor to double check that I had met all reqs to graduate. I changed majors fairly late in the game and just wanted to make sure there would not be any issues, as I was planning on going straight to LS. Met w/ counselor and she reviewed my transcript and class schedule for next semester. She told me that there was a class that I needed but it was full so we called a dept. head and everyone agreed that I could substitute a different class for the one that I needed.

About 2 weeks before graduation I got an email that told me I could not graduate because I had not met reqs. Instantly called GC and asked to meet ASAP. We called dept. head (standard neo-feminist liberal arts type) who goes on a huge tirade about students trying to game the system and refuses to sign off on the waiver of the requirement. Keep in mind that I already had all my shit together to go to LS. As an aside, the GC starts sobbing loudly during this call, I think she felt guilty for suggesting that I take this route. At this point I am beyond pissed, so I go to this woman's office, (the inside of which resembles a house on that "Hoarders" show) and begin banging on the door. Now literally 3 minutes had passed since we spoke on the phone, and I could tell when she opened the door that she was not sure what to expect. Upon identifying myself, she tries to close the door but it pinches my rubber flip flop. She keeps pushing but the door won't close, so she thinks I am pushing back. She tells me that if I don't leave she is calling security, but there is no way I'm leaving w/ only one flip flop, so I shove the shit out of the door. Grab my flop and leave. I hear her pick up the phone, so I assume she called security, but I was parked pretty close and I left right away.

Long story short, I talked w/ the dean later that week and bring the GC w/ me. GC backs up my version of the events dealing w/ the requirement issue. Dean agrees to let me graduate, but says I can't walk @ graduation. Turns out that bitchass dept. head is the keynote speaker. LOL

heard that I was applying to a university fellowship. Offered to write me a recommendation. I wasn't planning to ask him. Didn't really know him - got an A in his class, chatted with him a couple of times. But when he insisted, I thanked him and he did.

Didn't get fellowship. Fellowship director did mention that I should be more careful, in the future, of whom I ask for recommendations, and told me that he strongly advises against going to said professor again for a recommendation.

Don't have any more info.

oh, there's an old xoxo mega thread about this.

One semester, I had only ten minutes between two classes, and they were on opposite sides of campus. Both were required classes. I talked to the professor of the second class, and told him I would be about five minutes late for every class that semester, and told him why. He said he understood, and that it was fine.

End of the semester, I had an F, even though I got an average of A or A- in all my work. I emailed the prof, and he said it was because I didn't attend a single class. I thought that maybe he had me mixed up with someone else, because I sat in the front row and participated a lot. I went to his office so he could see my face, and he once again said that I had not attended one class. I was baffled.

I had to go over his head. Dean asked me to get signatures from my classmates saying they had seen me in class. I had to go around the last week of the term, explaining the situation to my classmates, and getting signatures.

I literally handed in everything late in undergrad, with various excuses/reasons for extensions.

Had 2 profs yell at me in their office for handing in essays late. One said his course was graduate level and I had to "stop acting like a college freshman" (was a 4th year split undergrad/grad level course.) I didnt show up to about 70-80% of classes because it was a 10 am class and I slept in. After he yelled at me I rarely missed class although wouldn't always contribute in discussion. Got an A on essay, he said he was impressed and sent email saying he could appreciate why I needed more time to complete it (after I cited my excuse as being sick.) Ended up with an A- in

course overall, patched things up with prof in end.

Same with other prof - she also wrote my reference but wasn't as pissed at me, more concerned and said she thought I may need to see a doctor if I had some issues preventing me from submitting anything on time ever, and missing all her classes. I basically said I was going thru "personal issues" that affected me and still use this excuse, got an A in course and said I was one of top students.

Thing is that I got along very well with most profs and TAs personally so 99% would give me extensions without any difficulty (although I'd still get B+ to A- grades generally, my school didn't give As easily.) These were the only 2 profs that got more upset. I think the worst was submitting a take-home exam *2 months* after the deadline but the prof just deducted half a letter grade, gave me B+ and I ended up as his thesis student. He was a cool dood.

docked me for attendance (or lack thereof) and gave me a D- on my lab notebook because it was "messy" despite having received As on all my labs (which were, oc, based on my lab notebook) and tests.

Oh yeah, lab notebook was 25% of the grade. Oops.

This guy knew I knew the shit too he just thought I was being "disrespectful" by showing up only occasionally. Thought I was throwing a middle finger at him or something. The reality is I just didn't need to come to class. And I've always had bad handwriting.

Senile 80 years old prof gave me a D because “you wrote a law paper and it was supposed to be a history paper.” Wtf, I’m in LAW SCHOOL.

Lawrence Friedman. I just looked him up and he’s still fucking teaching at 90 years old! He was just a grumpy old man who bitched about how all the students just cared about getting jobs and didn’t care about “intellectual” stuff anymore. Yeah, we didn’t spend $5 to go to law school like you dipshit.

Terribly boring and I went to maybe 2 classes and stopped going. The paper I wrote wasn’t great but it also wasn’t deserving of a fucking D. He was doing it to mess with my job prospects I’m sure since he doesn’t give AF. He’s one of the academics who’s never worked a day in his life and would’ve never made it anywhere in modern academia or professional world.

Seems like the tension between you and him as individuals has nothing to do with the actual bodies in the situation

The issue is between you being forced in law school for "money" and him being forced to work at law school for "money" and because it's the only way he can find an outlet for his "Law" related Academic ideas

You're not wrong to be angry but it seems as if we have a systematic issue poisoning the potential relationship between two mercenaries so maybe your frustration should be channeled at that instead
