Psh.

1) Wrote a 2.5 page report 30 minutes before class
2) Wrote, rewrote, edited my 22-page senior project, complete with presentation board and 15 minute oral report night before it was due. Got an A.
3) Started and finished several term papers the night before, some as late as 4 hours prior to class. Nothing less than a B on any of them. I work exceedingly well under pressure.

Last time I did this , I was doing my Systems & Controls (electronics) coursework, 25 A3 pages. I got an A alright :)

But I also learned that work is better spread throughout the weeks rather than the day before its due till 5am working on it.

when i was in high school i started all my long papers the evening before they were due &
typed them using a manual (not electric) typewriter (this was the early 70's).

i wised up by the time i reached college, though.

It's a disease that u all should try to get rid of.

Pish-tosh and poppycock. Do you realize how many problems solve themselves if you just put them off long enough?
