Worst feeling...

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I had a simple paper due yesterday by 9PM. I finished it on Sunday and uploaded my file to the page with a comment asking the professor if he could open it (I used LibreOffice). Any-who, I was checking last night at midnight before bed to see if he commented on it saying if he could open it. I realized I had only uploaded it and not submitted. So a paper I finished two days in advance I may get no credit for because I submitted it 3 hours late...I emailed him and he has yet to get back to me, but my only proof is that comment I posted on it on Sunday. I hope he spares me. I'm a straight A student and I always get all my work done as soon as I can. I'm just so frustrated over this whole experience.

Know the feeling. I recently finished my HND course and got a C. I would've gotten a B had I not handed it in late and I was very close to getting in A and would have been able to had I handed it in on time and got feedback to improve. Still, about to start the BSc. Maybe I can do a little better this year and get an A by handing my work in on time!

Better use MS Office next time... I gave up on using Libre Office for my uni work, way too much messing around with compatibility and formatting retention, especially with presentations. LO is nice and free, but MS office 2013 is fast, looks great, and you never have to worry about formatting issues. It's really not that expensive for the amount you use it, $99 (university price) includes a 4 year subscription with 2 licences. Like really, I use it every single day, it's perfectly justifiable. Unless you're running Linux full time... you can't be helped. Also gave up on that for uni work (and I do an IT course).

 

or you could.... 'obtain' it...

Do not worry. My Great Texts class was fraught with such experiences. By all of my class mates. Twas sadly hilarious and morale breaking at the same time.

Yeah but it's not like it wasn't done in time, it was done way ahead of time :/

Nah I don't pirate. But the problem itself was not turning it in on time for not clicking a few buttons...

Libre Office is a waste of time because of the formatting issues. Collaboration work was a nightmare because all my stuff was formatted incorrectly when others opened it and formatting was completely lost in powerpoint. It just pissed me and others off. $99 is nothing for software you use every day to get real and important work done.

I rarely if ever have to use it. Computer science and Math major :P

 

I could have copy pasted the text I guess but where's the fun in that? I feel that most other papers will be paper copies though so it doesn't make a difference.

Better use LaTeX next time. Once I learned that I never opened word again.
