Subject: Final Grades
Howdy Prof Lowery,
My name is Jose and I’m in your CVEN class. I see you just posted the grades and realize that I got a 79.25 in your class. I was just wondering is there any chance I could do some extra credit or something to bring my grade up to a B? In such a difficult class like this I have spent countless hours watching your videos, doing homework problems and cramming for the exams. Surely you can’t really grade that closely to separate a C (pretty bad) from a B?
Thank you for considering this request. It would mean the world to me.

I’m really sorry, but lines have to be drawn somewhere and once stated in the syllabus, we pretty much have to stick with them.

I was talking with Jose and he said he was pretty sure you were going to give him just a little bit on his grade to get a C. Is that right? If so, I would certainly like for you to know that my average is a 89.13, so I need less than he does, and if I could get an A it would let me keep the 4.0 GPA that I have going into this semester. If you raise his will you be changing mine too since I am closer to a letter change?
Thank you greatly,

Jose should keep his requests to himself. Now his request will have to be denied. Although it had to be anyway. I’ll let him know why. Actually, once we decide on a point break, it’s really hard to justify changing it.

Howdy Dr. Lowery,
I just saw the grades you posted on eCampus. After calculating my exact grade in the class I ended this semester with a 87.59 and a B. My final exam grade was a 95 and I believe that this grade demonstrates my understanding of the material taught in this class. Is there a possibility that my letter grade could be improved to reflect my final exam grade? Thank you for your time and consideration.

Dear Dr. Lowery:
I read on Facebook that you were considering changing the grade needed to get a C in @@@. Can you tell me what it will be? I am on probation and that really might make it possible for me to stay in school. Right now I have a 66 in your class and they say I have to get all C’s or better.
