After consulting with my contracts professor (who also teaches part-time), I have a possible explanation.  He said the part timers performed much worse than full timers on the finals (at least, there are fewer A's given out), and as a whole were lumped much closer to the 3.0 curve.  This explains why moving into the larger pool could negatively affect a part timer's ranking.



This is probably the deal.

UNLVchick got "screwed" by the rankings.  Some of the part-timers (the bottom half), were helped.

I can't believe I missed all that. . . Why do I sleep???

Thank you dashrashi for reiterating the point I was trying to make yesterday in a clear and concise manner (I was about to cut and paste a spreadsheet.)

On the assumption that UNLV has signed off I will try to keep this going.  Rankings came out recently and I am one rank outside a significant top X% cutoffs (exact % is X.2%)  What is the best way to handle this??

Was I screwed by that part timers?? (kidding).

I also think your "peers" argument is rather funny.  I have friends in the part time section that are taking civ pro from the same professor I am.  We study together.  We go to the same school.  We are taking the same professor.  We aren't peers? 

On a side note, if I get arrested for burglary and go to trial, will the people I've never met, likely would never meet, nor have anything in common with, yet are called a "jury of my peers", not my peers?

Hmm.

I like that you integrated civ pro into your hypo....the very subject you are studying.

For posterity.

Haha, you did this in another thread too - I don't know what to make of it.


For the record, I don't see anything civ about the pro described here.

Well now you're just nitpicking.

Uh, if you mean pointing out elementary and quite stupid mistakes made in the course of trying to show how smart and superior you are, sure, "nitpicking" works.

There are like four things in your last post that are amusing in their sheer misguidedness. So thanks for the laughs.

I'm merely responding to your relatively recent pattern of insulting me in random threads--I thought that was how you preferred our discourse, so I tried to follow suit.

Shithead.

Oh, "insufferable feminine hygiene product" doesn't begin to cover it. "Unbelievable f-ing prick" frankly doesn't get the job done, either. Uh, haha.

Maybe you should get all the name-calling out of your system here - this thread's a train wreck anyway.  After that though, truce?

Are you joking? Why would I agree to a truce with you when you seem to think that you have immunity for the nasty and screwed up things you say anyway? Or, rather, when the nasty and screwed up things you say, you easily recast as perfectly innocuous, and anyone who doesn't choose to participate in that little fiction is therefore a psycho and needs to calm down? What would your agreement to a "truce" actually prevent you from saying? Go piss up a rope.

bosco what is it with you picking fights with everyone lately? Can't you seperate comments you disagree with from the people themslves?
*In clinical studies, Matthies was well tolerated, but women who are pregnant, nursing or might become pregnant should not take or handle Matthies due to a rare, but serious side effect called him having to make child support payments.

So, any time you want to start, get cracking. And I'll feel free to remind you of this new commitment to civility, yeh?

Whatever. You're such an unbelievable tool.
