If you want to argue for your limitations, who am I to disagree?Or do I? I always knew that and that's basically why I went and why I stay (that and occasionally there are nice subjects and certain cool things that I can learn). This whole thread is more about "isn't there other way" or "couldn't this be done better" kind of thing. After all we do it in high school too. It's really obvious who are persistent and take stuff seriously, when looking at their grade history. For me it has been pretty stable 8 with minor fluctuations. Also where I live what I call high school here is called gymnasium (4 years, but can be 2 years if started after 10 year base school which is very rare) and it's technically optional too, mandatory formal education ends in base school (10 years).
And I don't think that it's just about showing persistence. I'm a foolish believer in such institutions' obligation to teach us things and that we learn them too, not that you don't care and other don't either. If that happens, it just shows how broken particular place is. And mine kinda is. I suspect that it suffers from various expansionistic project that my university had in last decade. They are gung ho on attaining real estate (they grew almost twice during my years here), attaining students (having shit ton of shovelware events, doing as much as they can to make foreigner study here, which in all honesty mostly suck. 20% of them don't do any homework and simply are fools others are just average.) and making cash (I noticed growth in optional bullshit courses like religious ecology, old Greek language studies, gender studies, new testament studies, media studies and etc.). At the same time mild administrative chaos is normal for them, everything done as cheaply as possible is also fine (sometimes to crazy extremes), money wasted on many useless things, their support for disabled people is top tier bullshit (they advertised it quite heavily and only some barebones were actually done and in reality this university is hardly any better than others. It sure is no Gallaudet university or anything like that) and there's a clear lack of focus on academic research. I'm a thirds year student here and doing actual research instead of just following instructions just isn't a thing, which I think is bad for university. Let's just say I'm not a fan of how this university is run and unsurprisingly if not scholarship, then I would think about alternatives seriously.
Argue for your limitations, and sure enough they’re yours. – Richard Bach What does that mean? Put another way, if you argue for your limitations, who will argue against you and against your limitations? Unless you have a full-time side-kick, probably nobody. So whatever you say you can’t do...
