He told me let him know if there are problems. I submitted what I have by midterm. Come the day before the project was due I finally got some half-assed work done by the other team members. They got D's and I got a A on the assignment. It would be unfair to penalize you for your team members' failures. You can't compell them to do the work (I mean, even the professors can't) so I don't know how they can penalize you. I would have gone through every step of grade appeal process to get that grade changed.
Yep we went through all the appeal process steps. The idea is that we are supposed to demonstrate leadership so that he would show up to the presentation date. The dude has since dropped out. Nothing I could do but take the C.
