IIRC it was bumped in 2012 by some diff student in similar circumstance, and then a few months ago when some dude at Tulane gave the most recent dood an "F" in civil procedure (it made it to AboveTheLaw).

More to the point just a lot of decent advice about when to avoid the sunken-cost fallacies. TheSeaLocust has a thread on this too going.


The most recent story that made it to ATL was not at Tulane, but TJSL, which like TTTTs routinely flunks a big chunk of the class:

Sorry! I'm not on here very often, for obvious reasons.

The Dean and prof said the grade was legit/deserved, and that there was no clerical error. Prof received all the pages printed from ExamSoft for the F exam.

Btw, since I have nothing to loose at this point, I'll out the T30 as a cautionary tale to 0Ls--it was BC. Guess away at who the prof is; I won't divulge any more details.

If you want to avoid stubborn old coots and an unsupportive administration, stay the fuck away from BC.

Apparently, I'm not the only one. :shock:
Though the other Fs given out may have been given out for plagiarism/not showing up.

Wonder if OP had the same prof as I did, lol.

He said he had a well-paying finance position that he could return to, IIRC?

Unless you literally insulted the professor or failed to answer 50% or more of the questions, this grade absolutely should not stand. Talk to the Dean and put this in the context of your enormous investment. Demand that the Dean and an independent board review your exam. Even getting the grade substituted for a D+ or C- would be sufficient to keep you in the running for a decent job.

Dude, commenting on whether any of these grades should stand from exams in 2011 and 2012 isn't very helpful.
