@SimplyChic11:  Maybe I didn’t read this right, but to me it sounded like the professor was totally supporting you, perhaps worrying that with this tight a schedule, you might suffer because of your classmate’s failure to meet you halfway on this project.

But obviously the biggest disappointment is that this pushes you back a semester, which has got to be a letdown.

Sorry to sound harsh, but I wouldn’t worry about taking credit – it sounds like your partner’s tardiness may be setting up the actors to fail, and you don’t want your name associated with that!

@SimplyChic11:  are you sure your advisor isn’t pulling her to? The advisor obviously knows this person is not pulling her weight and failed in producing her part of the project when she was supposed too. I wouldn’t take it to heart because this was not your fault. This is why I HATE group projects. There is always one person that slacks and causes the rest of the group to fail or everyone else gets stuck with extra work.

Im sorry your having a hard time but this is definately for the best. Can you pull your parts that you worked on in case she does get to continue?

Oh hun, you’re not a failure! It sounds like there are all kinds of factors at play here, and your competency surely isn’t one of them. I agree that the advisor seems very supportive of you and your goals — I’d rather have her on my side than a partner who doesn’t pull her weight of the work.

I know from your previous posts that college hasn’t been your favorite thing and you’re pretty much dying to get out of there, but maybe this second chance is a way to end college on an upswing. You can focus on yourself in the fall, finding fulfillment in your work, and graduating with a serious sense of accomplishment, rather than just feeling like you’re finally getting away.

Hang in there!!!

@SimplyChic11:  I’m in Columbus!  Ohio proud, UNITE.


Anyway, this bites… but you and I both know this is definitely for the best πŸ˜‰  It sucks it’s being dragged out, but I can almost guarantee you will emerge victorious in the end. Keep your head up and keep on truckin, it’s almost over!

Are you at UD or Wright?

@SimplyChic11:  That’s super upsetting.  I think you’re having as great an attitude as one can possibly have about it, considering.

Just to make sure – your advisor KNOWS that you really, really, really want to graduate on time?  Sure it sounds lovely to work together, one-on-one, on a special project next semester, but time on a private campus is unfortunately money.  The month was exactly what you needed at the beginning of this thread!!

@SimplyChic11:  If this is a senior project, I’m guessing that you’re a drama/theatre major. As someone in the arts and education, the importance isn’t just graduating. Maybe your advisor is looking out for you to help you make a great end-product to use as a portfolio or sample for your future endeavors or a career. Yes, you could graduate with some shoddy production of a half-assed show that you’re not that interested in — or you could graduate with an amazing finished product that you are excited about sharing.

Take the time to speak to your advisor one-on-one and clarify any issues if you are going to be working together for the next semester. It’ll also help you to know exactly what her plan is for extending your project. And I think it’s also important for her to know that this is a sacrifice for you, financially, and that you are putting your all into it.

Just another perspective…
