Have you ever thought you did SO POORLY on an exam that you felt compelled to email your professor and explain yourself? I just took my payment law exam which covers Article 3 and 4 of the UCC. I studied for 4.5 days straight. I re-did every problem in our coursebook. I studied my notes over and over. I took multiple practice exams. I sacrificed my MOTHER'S DAY for this test. I felt so prepared going in. I thought I would dominate the sh*t out of that test.
Except. I failed. Yes. I'm pretty sure I failed. What happened?
The wrath of my professor. That's what happened.
Towards the end of the semester SOME students (*cough* me *cough*) were getting a little lazy. We let a problem or two slide away from us. We started skimming UCC provisions. We stopped coming to class prepared. The professor did not like this one bit. In fact, he lectured the class, shamed a select few (thankfully not me otherwise I would have erupted in tears), then sent us all nasty emails about the proper expected behavior outlined in our class syllabus. I guess he decided to take this out on us all through the exam.
This test for my measley 2 credit payment law course was the hardest law school exam I have taken yet. It was exponentially harder than my 4 credit Sales/Secured Transactions exam. I am so dissapointed because I thought I knew all the material. I was as prepared as I could ever have been- no amount of extra study time would have helped. The exam was just THAT hard.
So why do I feel like I need to explain myself? Because this is the bow-tie professor. He wears a BOW TIE. And... I have a thing for bow ties. So as arrogant and mean as this guy can be, he meets the one necessary element to qualify as my crush: BOW TIE. Seriously, he is also super smart (another important factor) but the bow tie gets me every time. Dreamy. Sigh.
