Mulligan – v. A mulligan, in a game, happens when a player gets a second chance to perform a certain move or action. The practice is also sometimes referred to as a “do-over.” (via Wikipedia).
Folks, you might have noticed the foul stench of stress seeping through the doors of Olin. The time has come to just mulligan that class that you’ve been struggling with all semester. Let your freak flag fly–you don’t need that Existentialism final dragging you down. Here are some pro tips on mulliganing a course:
- It takes a long time. You have to get about a million (three) signatures, not to mention that dreaded conversation with the professor. Be sure you have time to meet with all of the necessary people before talking to your professor.
- Sometimes you need to YOLO. Dude, it’s real. And if you have really not been jiving with Milton, just accept who you are. Dropping a class can feel truly excellent and liberating.
- Telling your parents. What physics course? No, mom, I never was taking physics. It was always a light semester. No, I was doing that reading for fun! [Ed. Mom, I have never mulliganed a course].
- More time to play in the snow. Sledding is real guys. And it needs time.
