Lol. I was terrible in Undergrad! I would check the syllabus to see how many “I could get away with.” Don’t feel bad, we all feel a tad overwhelmed with life sometimes.

Oh yeah, but like you, I would feel guilty unless I was sick.  It’s okay to skip once in awhile.  Just can’t make a habit out of it.  πŸ™‚

@Luxuryshoegal88: I ran into a prof at the grocery store the other day for one of my smaller classes… he jokingly told me that it seems like he sees me more outside of class than in. Haha. Jerk.

I think that so long as your grades  don’t suffer you are allowed to make adult decisions about whether you attend or not some days.

Depends on the class. I once skipped an entire month of a 50 person lecture. I caught hell for it, but the prof really couldn’t argue when I showed up and aced the test. The majority of the class that dutifully attended yet did not do as well on the test glared at me when he decided to loudly announce that.

I hate classes like that, though. I’m paying tuition money and I expect to be learning something, dammit. I’d rather not skip classes, but if they strike me as beneath me or sometimes, like in your case, stuff comes up, I will take a personal day. I haven’t yet in grad school since I am on assistanceship and I feel like they are practically paying me to go to school.

Eh don’t feel badly about it.  I did in college….although always make to sure I was under the allowable amount of classes to miss hah.  I also would skip classes sometimes for grad school when I was feeling overwhelmed by full time work with classes at night.  Everyone needs a day off to recover.

Honey, as a prof. I can tell you that I MUCH prefer the students who cut on occasion than those who come to every class and spend the entire time chatting/texting/sleeping whatever πŸ™‚

i’m in grad school now getting a phd and haven’t skipped class once…and in undergrad too i very rarely skipped. in between though i took some french classes, not for any credit, and skipped a ton since i was working full-time and such.

I skipped constantly. If I had a certain amount I was allowed out, you better believe I took it. My senior year of highschool? Almost never there, or I took half days. still managed to graduate with an A average, don’t ask me how that happened… I wouldn’t have put up with me πŸ˜›

I skipped some classes in undergrad, but very rarely. In grad school, I haven’t skipped any. I always figure I’m paying so much for tuition, I may as well show up and try my best.

i skipped as often as possible without having my profs made at me. smaller class = went more. large class = only went when necessary. that’s the plus about going to a large college with giant general requirement classes. loved going to my smaller classes with sections though.

and i never felt guilty as long as i knew my grades weren’t going to suffer for it.
