Pride or Prejudice?
The e-mail from the registrar informs us that April 1 (which is actually a Sunday) is the last day for add/drops. Again, with the modification that April 1 is a Sunday, a commenter below makes astute observations that I quote in full
What is up with the Registrar letting us know today about the drop deadline of Monday, April 1. Since it is the first day after spring break, if you wanted to drop a Monday- or Tuesday-only class, you would have to have already gotten the signature before she notified us of the deadline. Similiarly, if you want to add a writing class (LAW 299) and your prof. is taking a long spring break, you are SOL. Another smooth move by the Registar!I agree with the commenter in full. I'm just wondering WHY I agree with him/her. Is it objectively reasonable to be pissed off, or is it just all the registrar bashing around Boalt creates an expectation and we're just victims of the confirmation bias? Maybe it's our fault. The deadline is probably in some publication. Maybe it's in a memo convenient placed in my locker, or maybe it's in the planner that I can't find. Thousand to one odds it might even be online. Moral of the story, if you're considering Boalt, "self-starters preferred."
