Dr. Dr like i said is a great guy, but an awful teacher. Our classes are 2.5 hours each week, but he does not have enough material for us to last anywhere near 2.5 hours. So he has every one of us do a 1 hour presentation, one student per class, about something that is not related to the class at all. He told us we are not responsible for knowing the chapters that the presentations come from, we are not required to take notes on our classmates' presentations either. He realized that 2 people in my class use the presentation time to do work for other classes, and I do agree that its disrespectful, but I can't blame them simply because that class is a waste of my time. So he decided halfway through the semester (midterms just ended) that we are responsible to know all 8 chapters/presentations that have been covered so far because some of us were not responsible. Each chapter is 60-80 pages, that is a thick book, and he said our next exam will have 2-4 question on each of the chapters. That is Fucked up big time, because if we knew this, we would have been taking notes and we would have been reading a chapter a week. A more reasonable punishment would be from here on out to be responsible for future chapters/presentations, that makes sense. But with our work load for every other class, we CANNOT catch up like that. This is the bullshit that I am talking about that goes on in this program. They do not communicate about the workloads they assign and they have absolutely no respect for us.
The other incident that happened yesterday is that I had to score an IQ test by hand that I administered. A program exists on the clinic computers that will do all the calculations for you. Now there is only ONE desk in the clinic, and it has a computer in front of it. I was sitting in front of the computer, I moved the keyboard and mouse aside for more work space, I turned off the computer monitor, and I was doing my own business. Dr. St (who already accused me of cheating before) comes in the room to use the microwave, we have small talk, nothing big because I have nothing to say to her. Its obvious I'm doing my stuff by hand. She comes back 2 minutes later with this smart ass grin on her face saying "you DO know that you can't use the computer to do your analysis, riiight?", as if I am Fucking cheating right there on the spot. That pissed me off, she has absolutely no respect for me, nobody in this program does.
With this kind of stuff going on left and right, its hard to keep a good morale to work hard at this program.
UPDATE: A second year student who works in the clinic, who is most closest friend in the whole program told me that Dr. St was asking her if she knows of me cheating because I was acting suspicious yesterday. So again she thinks I am cheating, two semesters in a row. I swear to god when I graduate and I walk up and grab my diploma and then I am supposed to shake her hand, I will spit straight in her Fucking face. This program is pushing me to the edge.
