to not go to class anymore because my exam scores aren’t reflecting the amount of time I’m putting into attending class. Screw it.
I’ll still go to neuroanatomy because I like the subject a lot and we do interactive things in class, but I’m going to stop going to micro (~8 hrs lecture/week) and physio (~5 hrs/week). I think I’ll just study in the library instead during those class times. There just aren’t enough hours in the day, and my time will be better spent if I use the mornings to actually study instead of going to class. With a combined ~13 hrs of lecture a week for micro/physio, I could watch the recordings for those lectures in half the time and make it ~7 hrs instead. That’s a lot of time saved that could be used to study.
My class representatives talked to the Dean about professors turning off the recording system to punish students that don’t come to class, and apparently that issue has been resolved. Now there isn’t a reason for me to hesitate skipping class, and if there’s a chance I’ll learn better by not going then I think I should take advantage of that. We’ll see how this turns out.
I also have some good news to share! I got elected to some leadership positions for the upcoming school year, so if you’re going to be matriculating in the fall, I’ll probably be seeing you very often :).
