You’d think by now I would have this whole “back to school” thing all figured out. Apparently not. When I got the syllabus for my Financial Analysis course on Monday I was overwhelmed by the amount of work that was due for Wednesday: chapters upon chapters of textbook reading, multi-part problem sets, and catching up with all financial current events. Accepting my fate, I hunkered down and tried to get through as much of it as I could. It wasn’t until I took a second look at the syllabus today during class that I realized that half of the work I did is actually due for Friday. Lesson learned: READ THE SYLLABUS. Union professors assign a ton of work, but they’re not that cruel!
