You may recall that last month I inadvertantly signed up for two modules at uni that I was not elligible to sign up for. The modules I’d chosen were not to be made available to students in the Social Sciencs department unless they had taken certain qualifying modules the previous spring.

I was told that it would be necessary to give up the two classes I’d chosen, and instead take some other courses that I had little interest in. At the same time, it was suggested that I resist this request, and have my case put forward before the St. Paul’s committee.

On the day of the meeting I was rather busy, and so accepted the kind offer made by one of my professors to attend on my behalf, and state my case.

In the middle of my sakubun class today I received an email, congratulating me on winning my case; indeed, I had, apparently, set a precedent, and thus based on the ruling by St. Paul himself, all students in a similar situation will now be able to continue in their courses as they had desired.

You see, it IS possible to beat the b*****ds.
