I was sick last week with the flu and missed a test in an American Federal Government Class. I scheduled a make up essay test for today (Thursday). The professor told me to get the notes from the teaching assistant (TA). I got the notes from him and started studying on Tuesday for the test. I studied the first few lectures on Tuesday, but as I was studying the last few lectures last night, I found large amounts of information missing from the TA's notes, especially over fiscal policy, budget surplus, and social security. Obviously, without the needed information, I'm not going to get a good grade on the exam. I have emailed the professor, but it is still early in the morning here in Dallas. Do you think he will let me reschedule? Should I say anything that would help my case out?

I am assuming this is a college question judging by your age and the fact you are at SMU. You should consider yourself lucky he is letting you make the test up at all since some college profs say if you miss it you are f@cked. No point in going to the mountain twice because it just gives him a chance to change his mind. It sounds like you got a good portion of the information from the TA and I would hope you went to class most of the time since SMU is not a cheap school. Given this you can probably at least pass the test and get some grade down in the book probably saving your semester grade.

Oh JSC, it was worth it! Ugh, whatever man. How do you know what professors dread? Since when did you get your Ph.D.? Jeez... If you have not already read above, it's been taken care of, so your post was basically invalid, and just an attempt to take a stab at me. Maybe you are the one that needs to man up and quit making petty posts.
