Sometimes I really feel like academia is for the birds. My IOE test from the last day before T-givens came back today...just under the curve, an 82 against a mean of 84 with a standard deviation of 8. Blast. The real tyranny here is that the curve is variable and that means I don't know where I am, and that a B is semi-required. Specifically, a B average is required to stay off of academic probation. It's so confusing I almost miss the old '70 stays, 69.49 goes' days of the Institute.
