Please, little community college.

I don't usually diss on community colleges. But because of the economy, our local CC has suddenly become selective. But not in a really intentional way. I think they are starting to jerk students around a little to see who will persist.

An ex-student of mine is trying to get into Local CC, she says she can't afford us. See how they are messing with her...

I sent a word doc to her.

I sent that to LCC and they said this version has the instructor's edited notes on the word document. They asked me to ask you if you can send a version that does not have those edited portion on it. Thank you so much!!

Dr. PUI Prof,
I will tell them. I told them that we did use the same book and that I
felt very prepared for Blah 2 after coming through your class.
Unfortunately, my transcripts reflects that SRU assigns 3 credit hours for
the lecture and lab, while LCC gives 4 credit hours. They are trying to
resolve this issue. It has very difficult and I appreciate your help in
sending this information. Sorry to take your time.
I hope your semester goes well!

1. I told you I was a rigorous instructor. :)
2. I think this school is looking for either an excuse to deny her, or they want to milk her for more credit hours.
3. I'm pretty sure that they learn as much or more in my 3 SH as they do there in 4.
4. You know, sometimes you get what you pay for...
