It’s the time of the year again—the last day to decide if you will pass/fail or drop that pesky Calc class is next week on Nov. 17th, and Eyesites knows it can be a tough choice. We’ve come up with a handy checklist to help make your decision easy. Mark "yes" or "no" for each question
You did the reading once, in September, but are now using the main text as a doorjamb/lunch tray.
You pay attention in this class … when the nasal sound of your own snoring jars you from a deep sleep.
When making plans with friends, you often schedule activities that overlap with the 75 minutes of this class—it’s been so long since you’ve attended, you’ve sort of forgotten when it even meets.
You don’t bring a notebook to class—instead, that time period, if not used for naps, is used for to-do lists, snacking, and trying to see how long you can stay aware of your own blinking.
You got a 70 percent on the midterm and contemplated going out for a celebratory drink.
When you do attend class, you frequently have the commiserating “I mean, I didn’t even do the work, am I right?” conversation with the girl next to you … except, you’re beginning to notice she’s always trying to hide something—wait, is that the problem set?—under her iPad.
Your professor once waved at you outside of class, but you didn’t recognize him in time to respond—you were too busy looking over your shoulder wondering who this crazy old man was dancing for.
Tally your score:
If you checked “Yes” for less than 3, you’re golden. Look at this little genius! Keep it up.
If you checked “Yes” for 3-5 of these boxes, we advise P/D/F. It’s not worth the risk.
If you checked “Yes” for more than 5 of these boxes it’s time to drop it like it’s hot. Get out of there while you still can.
