an A+ (100%) for the course! I'm shocked/stunned/bewildered! I only got a 79% on the final exam, but since my average was well above 100 because of extra credit, it didn't make a difference.
That said..............I can't help but feel I didn't really "earn" the A. My concept of all the A's I've earned so far, is that I really, REALLY understood the material - backward and forward and upside down. I don't feel that way with this course, and obviously didn't with getting a 79% on my final. I know I did all of the work and studied hard, and it will all help me when I take A&P 1 this summer, but this A just feel different than the others. Like I fooled the prof or something, and that if it wasn't for all of the extra credit, I would have gotten a B- or something, which is something I've never gotten (GPA is 3.90).
Anyone else ever feel like this? It's done and over, and I'll take what he gave me, because in his eyes I did earn it (I have NEVER cheated, or even though about it - all my work was my own), but it just feels............strange.

It does make a difference, IMO. You earned that extra credit. Congrats!

as long as you learned the material and the extra credit was related to it in some way, i say pat yourself on the back and be proud!
