But Course Selection is Typically So Logical . . .

Earlier this semester - but after classes were chosen - it was announced that the paper deadline would be moved up to December 17, 2009 for the fall semester. But SRO did an about-face - sort of - the other day, setting the deadline again at January 19, 2009:
In fairness to students who perhaps were unaware of the revised paper deadline policy when they enrolled in courses during the summer, the curriculum committee has delayed implementation of the new policy until this coming spring 2010 semester.
One reader emailed us pointing out what he viewed as an inconsistency in this rationale:
EXPLAIN how this would not apply equally to people who enrolled in courses during the summer for the spring 2010 semester?
Verily - although there's another add/drop round coming up in January, it's tough to ask students to juggle around their courses given the vagaries of switching up their schedule at that point.

99.9 percent of the time the SBA is completely useless - this has to be the best thing they've done in over a decade.

Why didn't the SBA do anything for the people who are enrolled in paper courses for the spring semester? Were there really no SBA members/buddies of SBA members who were enrolled in a paper course next semester?

Maybe they did push for spring, but the administration nixed it because the "we didn't know before it was too late" argument was even more bullshit in application to spring enrollment. (Paper deadlines were announced before add/drop ended in the fall).

And maybe they were concerned for those students who stood to lose from the decision-- the ones who had made plans that entailed not spending a free month working on a paper without the constraints of classes and other exams.

Thank you, SBA, for raising the quality of work expected from me this semester.
