Talking with professors about grades...

    Basically, in my stats class, I had straight A's going into the 3rd exam. I did poorly on it, due to a family issue (death).

    I aced the final and my final project, and am close to an A, but not quite.

    Should I talk to my professor?

      I missed the lecture before a midterm because a university sanctioned event. The professor knew about this, and the professor received paperwork beforehand. As it turned out, the midterm was based almost entirely on the missed lecture and I failed it. Miserably. I could only manage a B+, even with a near perfect on the final. There are some wounds that will never heal.

      Sorry but if you miss a lecture, university sanctioned or otherwise, you are still responsible for the material on it. That's really not the prof's fault.
