    I have been busting my butt to do these assignments. I have the TA from hell that does not have a problem taking off 6-8 points for an assignment. I am failing the class. My TA said no one else has a problem with their grades. DUH! apparently everyone else is getting good grades. Some of my misfortune is my fault. I posted before the class started since they put the class up early. I did not know blackboard was going to dock my assignment as late. Her point "did anyone tell you to post early? Did anyone say I couldn't? Is there something wrong with being an over achiever? She said she has posted comments on my papers, well then why do I not see them? I am so sick and tired of people taking advantage b/c we are in a popular field. Do you go to a restaurant and expect good service? It is your money paying for after all. Colleges think they are doing us a favor. Aren't we the customer? Don't we pay their salaries! I am not asking for something for nothing. I work my ass off for my grades and I get graded harshly? It is all BS. I will be writing the dean and hell will freeze over before I attend OU for my masters!

    Blackboard assignment dates were wrong for all of us and showed assignments as late. I have made it my personal policy never to post anything before Thursday since my experience has been the rules often change before then. Sorry about your TA. I've had the good, the bad, and the ugly--twice. It can be very frustrating but hang in there!

    I wonder if you had the same TA that I had last session with Community. Her grading was so idiotic that I ended up with a B+ and I didn't deserve that at all. Still fuming over that. I hope you have better luck than I did with complaining; didn't do me a bit of good but I sure hope you get somewhere. It's a shame to have to put up with this in your last class!!!
    Don't post her name here; I'll PM you and see if this is the same nut job I had.

    The more I look at the rubric for the ICP we just turned in, the more I doubt I did enough...oh well, guess I can't change it now. Starting on ICP midterm tomorrow. Has anyone started? Is it just as tedious? After this class I have Nutrition May to June 15 and then I will be done. Ready for a little break!! Hang on..we r almost there!!

    Gosh...that sounds rough Moving Forward...sorry to hear about all that. My TA was very fair. But, my TA in Ethics not so much. I would be more than frustrated if I was you. Hopefully things can turn around. I am afraid of failing Business Communication because of un submitted assignments. At least I can get a C in that class.

    If you write to the assistant dean RZ let me know. I'm curious to see how you do. I got nowhere with her. Hang in there. Post here with any questions. We watch each others back!

    I read constant complaints about the program on there. Is there another FB page or something?

    PS. yeah I read a thread on there just now, I bet that's the one you meant. And I agree with you, I'm amazed too.

    I just got my final grade back for 4600 and received an A. I was more than happy. I was very lucky with the TA I received. I have one B+ so far in Ethics and that grade was dependent on a group discussion board. I had no control over other peoples contribution...yet, I paid the price. I was so angry at the time. That was last year. I wrote to the professor and got NO response. That B+ still irritates me everytime I see it because I worked harder in that class than any other trying to salvage a GROUP project!!! GRRRRR.

    Hang in there and keep on talking, hopefully SOMEONE will listen!!! It is very frustrating when ONE TA can ruin the whole class for you!!!!!!!!!! Talk about professionalism and leadership styles!!!!!!! They need to learn what they teach!!!!!

    I was going to my masters at OU. Now they are telling me I need 2 more pre-reqs on top of the 6 I already took. So I have to fight them on top of dealing with the point Nazi in excellence. I agree. I am done with OU
    after this degree and I will never recommend it to anyone. You don't learn crap and have to deal with inconsistent BS. I heard the NP program was the same.
