Stealth Mode

Postby Addy » Mon Dec 05, 2011 3:05 pm

Silly question, but nevertheless. Not a fan of gunners, but my writing prof said she liked my ideas and said I needed to contribute to the class (another words, raise my hand). I have been reluctant to do this, but since the prof asked me to, not sure if staying in stealth mode is still the best strategy for this class.

So raise your hand every now and then to make the prof happy. Just don't overdo it and don't act like a know-it-all.

Stealth mode is always how people get ahead in life. You're paying upwards of 40,000 dollars for a legal education-get your money's worth.

Raise your hand, say whatever the hell you want when a professor asks for an answer but try to make it relevant and not some metaphysical crap. No one cares if you get it wrong and you are practically taking one for the team by volunteering. Don't do it all the time but once a week in a two class per week class seems ok. Teacher's will remember you, fondly if you do it well. I have gotten e-mails from multiple professors thanking me for my random contributions. You can bet if I need something I'll go to them first and generally will reply to their thank you e-mails.

Is the class graded? If so, then go ahead and contribute. If pass/fail continue to give no fucks
