Assume everything she says is true, and that her professor willfully and maliciously gave her a bad grade not because of her performance, but because of a personal or ideological vendetta. Assume further that because of that one grade, she was unable to ever obtain a particular professional certification that carries with it significantly greater earning potential. Should there be no remedy available for that?

Four years over a C+?

Is this about her Essay on Timeliness?

Yeah, a person who blames everybody else for her own failure would make an excellent counselor.

Another reason that I'll never have to serve on jury duty, because I would laugh at the plaintiff and her attorney during opening remarks.

Huh... I don't remember one named "Thode." Must be getting old.

Hamburg pointed out that Thode is the daughter of Lehigh finance professor Stephen Thode. One of the perks of that relationship was that she was able to enroll in the Lehigh graduate program tuition-free. The school provided her with a job as well. She also got to attend York College of Pennsylvania at no charge as an undergraduate thanks to her Lehigh connections, says The Call.

This explains so much. How do you spell entitled biatch? T-H-O-D-E.

Lehigh's lawyers allege that Thode's behavior in class was not acceptable for someone seeking a master's degree in counseling. On at least one occasion, they said, she used profanity in class. Another time, she broke down crying.

And she wants to be a counselor. Riiiight.

Before filing her lawsuit, Thode filed complaints with the university over the C+ grade, showing up at meetings with her father, the finance professor.

"Daddy, come help me!"

This is a lousy person who should be laughed out of court, and out of town, and out of the local diner.

kronicfeld: exick: If getting a zero for participation causes you to get a C+ and submarine your GPA so much that it destroys the career you were gunning for, you weren't doing well enough in the class to begin with.

As I read the admittedly piss-poor article, a particular grade was needed in that specific class. If that's not the case, you're right, that could have a huge impact on the analysis.

If that class was, in fact, a single-point-failure risk, AND she attended class and participated, then yeah,  she may well have a point here.

What. The. Fark?

Someone needs to take this person and her lawyer out and strike them repeatedly about the head and shoulders with a sack full of nickles until they apologize and promise to never step foot in a courthouse again.
