professors are confusing

I'm enrolled in a class where the professor presents us with a project but leaves out any detail of what she wants done.

She just wants to see what we can come up with.  This is either win or lose for the students because she may have a bias for certain designs so she will always give higher grades to those who do things the way she expects them to be done.

She also said the C students get farther in life.  It's as if she wants us to push for a C letter grade.

"Those who fail the most, succeed," she says.

I can understand the whole concept of doing things over and over until you get it right so that you can learn from past mistakes, but the way she gave her lecture made that point very confusing.

I guess she wants to use the C students to help her change her style or something.  Not sure what to think of this professor.

  2. Interesting concept. Except that if you drop my GPA just to teach me a lesson, I'll set your house on fire.

    Kind of a mixed message.

  3. it means he is a low preped proffesor who has low expectation of his student. He should have said u need A to be good in life even if u dotn got tha A.

    Thanks. :)
