I think someone forgot to study for their lit final

At Yale?  Not likely.  If you forgot to study, you just take the "Gentleman's C," or if you care about your GPA, write whatever and challenge your grade later.

I was once a TA for a senior-level elective course at Princeton.  The professor gave out some easyish lab assignments and a final paper, and graded the final paper himself with scores ranging from 50% to 89%.  I saw the scores and asked, "are you sure they were that bad?  Some of these 50s are the top students in the class on the labs."  So he had me go over the papers as a second opinion, and he was right:  they were among the worst papers I've ever graded.  They wrote like teenagers talked.

So I went back to the prof and apologized for doubting him.  He then showed me a printout of the score totals with two big modes and one outlier on the low end, and said, "I'm thinking these are the As, these are the A-minuses, and we can give this one a B."  The B student challenged the grade.

Complain until you get what you want. Otherwise known as the "American Way"
