Thinking is dangerous, kids.

(This being the end of the semester and all, school questions seem to be popping up left and right, no?)

A friend of mine is of the mindset that if you don't get stellar grades, then you're not learning a damned thing. Do you agree with him? Or do you think I need to pull on my big scary combat boots and go kick his ass?

Do you agree with the way students are graded?

Do you think college admissions ought to be more based upon what you're capable of, rather than your grades? (For example, a good essay paired with a lower GPA)


Why can't I get my Spring semester books until a week prior to classes?
