Haha. My professor did call on a few admitted students who weren't present and clucked his tongue when it became clear they weren't there. Mine was actually pretty fun.
And I second the comments being made about Columbia having great ASD programming. A lot of it was the students themselves, which makes it that much more impressive.
Hopefully your professor wasn't Jamal Greene. I had to cancel thanks to a flu, and my mom's convinced I've left an eternal black mark in Professor Greene's eyes.
Naw, Jamal didn't cold call (I was in his class) - however, he is the younger brother of one Talib Kweli
Also, another sweet note on Prof Greene's class, our mock assignment was to read Brown v. Board... halfway through the class an older gentleman (prly around 95) walk in and sits down in the front row, all the while no one says anything.
As Jamal begins to talk about the difficulites post-Brown v. Board he says, "but perhaps Mr. Greenberg is better versed in this topic". On cue Jack Greenberg (who litigated Brown v. Board along side Thurgood Marshall for the NAACP LDF) stood up and talked tothe class for 10 mins about B v. B and what's happened since... it was a very humbling and awesome experience!
