Saving the Worst for Last

I just took my last final. This is usually a cause for celebration, but in this case, it made finals end on a sour note. After cruising through a Bioengineering final in 26 minutes (out of two hours), feeling great about my Ochem final (a very rare occurence indeed — the last time I felt good about an organic chemistry test was May 2002!), and tearing up a CSE final, I ended it all by generally sucking at a Biology final. My propensity to proactively BS helped a bit, I am sure, but unfortunately I just hadn’t studied enough — some combination of the party going on here last night and generally not caring about the class after the plant physiology teacher took over from the much more engaging animal physiology teacher took its toll, I guess.

My predictions for grades this term — not based on any actual numbers I have calculated, but just from instinct:

Bioengineering 201: 3.7
Chemistry 238: 3.0
CSE 370: 3.8
Biology 220: 3.4

If my predictions are anywhere near accurate, it will be certainly not as nice as last quarter, but not a bad performance either. Certainly, biology is a bit disappointing, and there’s no really good reason for me to not have gotten 4.0’s in BioE and CSE, but I’d be happy with a 3.0 in Ochem — and frankly, thrilled with anything above a 3.3 in that class.
