First compsci master's class was kind of a disaster.

10+ people standing (not enough seats) and Prof says "don't worry about space, half of you will drop in the first 2 weeks"

Launched right into lecture without introducing himself (not even his name!) or the course at all

5min on the syllabus

Said he doesn't assume we know anything about subject but writes a bunch of equations with weird notation and no explanation of it, and he moved too fast for anyone to ask questions

Not even the bare minimum. I was shocked.

Plus he was so soft spoken, I was in the back and could barely hear him

@vickysteeves ah, well, this is why people drop. that's unfortunate that you have one-of-those profs.

@vickysteeves how utterly delightful

can't imagine why anyone would ever abandon CS

@vickysteeves Feh.

"Half of you will drop in the first 2 weeks" is quite the self-fulfilling prophecy.
