Let me back up though. I re-submitted the task on March 24 and subsequently emailed Kelly, my student mentor to let her know. We emailed back and forth a few times, and finally she asked if we could speak. Uh-oh. I remember from back in my HR days that, "Can we talk?" is code for, "I'm about to tell you something that a. you don't want to hear, b. I'm not actually supposed to tell you, or c. both. Sure, I was in the middle of SW Colorado, but hey time was running out on my term so I had to face the music, regardless of how scary it was.
I asked her about what she meant in the email about appealing the grade. I explained that I wasn't trying to disagree with the grade, just that I might not pass and then what? She said that as long as I'd contacted the student mentor, and done what he'd told me to, I'd have at least some ground to stand on. Kelly also told me that this was not my last submission, because it was only my 4th. On a 5 level task, you can submit something up to 5 times in total. This meant that it was possible that I could have submitted it one more time had I needed to. However, because, as of April 1 (no joke), I will be in the MBA - IT Management, and not the MBA - Management & Strategy program, the class would no longer have been in my course of study, so I couldn't have turned it in without some finagling by Kelly and me. Luckily, that won't be the case.
What this means, however, is that I took a class that I didn't need and which won't count towards graduation, but now I'm one class behind. Before I started Supply Chain, I actually thought I'd be one class ahead going in to Term 2. Have I mentioned in the last sentence or two how much I despised this class???
This weekend, I'm going to try and get a jump start on Social Responsibility. I'm supposed to use a company that I'm familiar with, but since I haven't really started my business, I'm going to use Apple. I read and enjoyed the Steve Jobs book, and they've been in the news lately for ethical violations so it'll be a topical paper.
