I received a note from my professor on a paper I wrote recently. The paper was one that I had no interest in, no desire to write at all, researched and put together sloppily the morning of the due date, and handed in 30 minutes before the official deadline.
The note said: "Excellent job on this assignment! Keep up the good work!"
At first I thought he was being facetious and expected a low grade and an email. I checked my grades and found full points for it. No email.
I spent the day wondering if the caliber for this class is really that low, or if I am a super mega-genius and am just finding out now.
