Dear Equity Uncle,
The law school is intent on thwarting my academic liberty to choose electives. I’m beginning to suspect a conspiracy.
When I compared my original subject selection to what was ultimately my uni timetable, I wondered if I was a masochistic somnambulist who spends the wee hours undoing my diligent daytime’s timetabling.
Three summers in a row now I’ve been dumped from my desired elective – is this fair?
P.S. I had to save this one up, you take unreasonably long holidays.
Is it fair that La La Land won a record seven Golden Globes? Is it fair that people describe the Golden Globes as the “poor man’s Oscars”? Is it fair that Ryan doesn’t respond to Equity’s texts? Equity delights in Ryan.
Most of your question on electives is boring to Equity. The simple solution is, of course, to choose only those subjects in which you can be guaranteed a place due to a lack of student interest. Equity fondly remembers his class in Advanced Resulting Trusts of Cumbria and Shropshire (Part 3). Those 7-hour tri-weekly lectures would fly by, and there were no other students to distract Equity from responding to his own questions.
Further, you should know, D, that Equity will not assist a volunteer. What have you offered to the Gods of Timetabling to secure your subjects of choice? How many EV forms have you sacrificed in Their names? Are you, truly, worthy? Equity, like the Gods of T, has his doubts.
P.S. Equity is the embodiment of reasonableness in all his activities. Although Equity now refuses to work weeks beginning with a Sunday in response to Mean Malcolm’s reforms.
