Well, it wouldn't take four years in the first place if they didn't take a month off at Christmas, four months off in the summer, and if students didn't actively avoid Friday classes.

I mean unless things have drastically changed in the last 4 years 95% of classes run either M-W-F for an hour or T-Th for 90 minutes. The trick is to schedule no M-W-F classes before noon (or ending after about 4) and to schedule as many of your big lectures (where no one will notice or care if you don't show up) as possible for M-W-F.


(of course this is coming from a guy who took 5 years to gradumacate so take it with a grain of salt)

I was a big fan of the once a week classes that went from 6:30 - 9:00 PM.

I took M-W-F classes my first 2 quarters my freshman year, and then never did that crap again. Everything else was M-W or Tu-Th.

I did like the option at my last school where I could take a class that met once a month, 5p-9p on Friday and 8a-5a on Saturday, and we never stayed the entire time.

i graduated from umass amherst in 4 years, and i probably could've done it in 3 if i was motivated or driven.

my whole second semester senior year was filled with phys. ed classes and freshman 101 classes, and was 100% useless.

the reason for this was that my father was dying from cancer at the time, and i knew he only had about 6 months to live, and i was a mess, so i front loaded my senior year with all the rest of my required curriculum, so my second semester was a 7 day a week drunken escape.

i went to my psych 101 final exam tripping my face off on acid, and the freshman i was sitting next to was more than eager to share his entire 100 question bubble sheet with me.

i was so focused from the hallucinating, that the black pencil bubbles were jumping off the page in complete 3d.

it was a little different from the oceanography 101 final later in the week, in which they sat us one seat apart from each other, and i couldn't see straight enough to cheat effectively because i was funneling beers on my deck up to 5 minutes before the exam.

ahhh 1993....

what a year.

as a Pussybar, that was the year that i did an entire group project in my sports media class by myself, because that fucking asshole mike williams (former clutch shooting guard for the minutemen) was in our group and basically told us that he wasn't doing shit, and the hot cuntbag sorority slut that was also in the group was basically using the fact that she knew i wanted to fuck her more than anything in the world to make me do everything.

20 pages by myself, what a chump...

i was about to throw the typewriter through the window.
