Wall of Shame: The Tardy Professor Edition

Because flames are cool.

Because flames are cool.

And so 2014 follows in the footsteps of her ancestors: our teachers still have not posted our grades on SSOL. Despite the fact that final grades were due on January 2nd, some teachers feel they are above the law and have not done so. Well you know what Bwog says? Those teachers deserve an F a big F U. Just kidding, we love you guys and we loved your classes, but please just give us a grade so we can go back to watching unprecedented amounts of Scrubs on Netflix.

So below is a list of some of Columbia’s failing teachers. Leave your tardy teachers in the comments.

    1. let me tell you how this is going to pan out says:

      @let me tell you how this is going to pan out You’re not going to get your grades back until the first day of office hours when someone can bring it up with him in person. He’ll say it’s because he thought he hit ‘submit’ but really hit ‘save’ instead. Nice, Folch

      @Anonymous Yeah…good luck with that one. Last year he gave us a scantron final and still didn’t get the grades in on time.

  • Shlomo's Class says:

    @Shlomo's Class Well besides the fact that Shlomo Hershko’s class is a joke, I have no idea why he can’t get the damn grades up. Everything has been graded for the past 12 days on Courseworks. All the hard stuff has already been done.

      @Anonymous right??? does he want us to calculate our own grades or something? come on man!

      1. Annonymous says:

        @Annonymous I can’t believe they still let him teach that “class”

      And yeah, there’s not really a lot of teaching, just an immense amount of programming.

      @did anyone catch this “I want you ALL to achieve a grade of B or better in my class.” -email from Bulinski. (but how’s that possible if this class is curved to a C+/B-?!)

        @Anonymous yeah, I didn’t get that at all. is she changing the curve??

      @psych major Not surprising. She took a month and a half to grade a 3 page paper. She never met her own deadlines regarding exam reviews either. Nice lady, but a procrastinator.

  • Angry Senior says:

    @Angry Senior Benjamin Ben Reddy – Intro to Statistical Reasoning.

    Hasn’t even graded the final yet, but I doubt anyone’s surprised since he was at least 3 weeks late with EVERY FUCKING THING.

    Come on, dude, I know it’s your first time teaching but your style is unacceptable.

      @and yet lise still has not posted grades!

  • ThatOneGuy says:

    @ThatOneGuy I say we penalize our grades upwards for this. For every day late, we should get a half-grade increase in our final grades. Fair is fair – let’s all play by the same rules.

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous Same story this year. Scantron final on the 17th – that’s two and a half weeks ago! – and no grades yet.

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous at Brown they never have this problem

    1. CC'10 says:

      @CC'10 Looking back and from the outside grades are stupid. We should basically just have pass, fail and honors. We should all stop playing this game.

      1. yes says:

        @yes Can this wonderful alumnus’ comment be featured?
        Okay, thanks.

        1. Anonamoose likes Latin says:

          @Anonamoose likes Latin Alumi instead of alumnus’ if we’re being technical here.

          1. Latin yay says:

            @Latin yay It’s actually alumnus (assuming the person is actually male and not an alumna) because there’s only one graduate. Alumni is masculine plural. So unless there’s a split personality…

          2. Anonamoose likes Latin says:

            @Anonamoose likes Latin In addition to being a masculine plural nominative form, “alumni” is also a masculine singular genitive form, which is what @yes was going for (notice the possessive apostrophe)

      @Anonymous Because Brown is just pass fail.

  • Annonymous says:

    @Annonymous Carl Bettendorf – Music Hum: Seeing as it took him a month and a half to grade the midterm, this shouldn’t be a surprise.

  • Mailman MusicHum says:

    @Mailman MusicHum All my grades are in, but my MusicHum prof gave me a grade that does not exist so hooray Columbia.

    1. Anonymous says:

      @Anonymous Ah, someone else had that too! I was quietly freaking out over here that I had somehow been accused of plagiarizing the IDs on my final

    2. me says:

      @me haha how weird, but totally expected from him! im in his class too, but I got a normal letter grade. what did he give you, like a W or something?

    @bio mejor I am not angry. I just really want my bio lab grade back, so I can know my final gpa.

    1. CC '13 says:

      @CC '13 Take heart, fellow sufferer (I was also a bio major + pre-med). It gets worse, like seriously, it does. Not to mention that once you’re done dealing with Mowshowitz and Hazen, you still have to encounter Megan Rigney and all her wickedness when applying for med school. But then eventually you get into med school and it all stops being so bad! So yeah, it gets worse – much worse – but then it gets better!

    Seriously this guy said he’d have grades out the Thursday of finals week. What’s up.

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous Alan Timberlake. Not surprising.

  • Anon says:

    @Anon Our grades aren’t up still.
    This is probably due to the fact that our professor may not know how to use the internet. Our Psets are written by typewriter, and our courseworks is blank. Having said this, I now realize that even posting his name would do no good because he has probably never heard of a bwog on the interweb.
