staple both, and then rip out the unneeded staple when you see what everyone else did

I like to staple my papers on the right. Makes it easier to read since the fold in the pages from the stapled side is on the right (usually unused part)

Bring the stapler with you and ask which corner he prefers and then staple it there. But upper left it standard

I'd say, be on the same side and staple right in the center of the paper. Then staple it to your forehead. Come-on...you should know where staples go...

Upper right is easier to read. I had professors that requested it.

Upper right is correct.

If you are brain dead.

I had a professor who, upon receiving an essay stapled in the upper right hand corner, cut off the entire corner (all 8-10 pages of it), then staple it in the upper left, and returned it to the student. Some profs are weird like that.

alright well thanks guys and thanks desteffy for the awesome advice. I stapled both corners, go to class, and it turns out it was upper left.
