Vote for the Worst Final Exam Schedule

When we opened up the worst final exam contest yesterday, we didn’t know what to expect. We’ve all had some shitty final exam schedules from time to time, but how bad could one really be? Little did we know just how miserable some of you will be starting on April 29.

With nearly 100 submissions received, we narrowed it down to these ten poor souls to figure out the worst of the worst. Check out the following reader submitted schedules and make sure to vote at the end. Some serious stuff is up for grabs, as the winner will receive a $25 gift card to a downtown location and an Onward State t-shirt.

This guy might just set a record with 8 (!) finals. Granted, they’re all in music, but it’s safe to say that it won’t be a good time for this dude.

Back-t0-back-to-back 8 a.m.’s is nothing to laugh about.

Four finals in one day? That ain’t right man.

Seven finals in legit classes. Just cruel.

Three finals on Monday and then one on Friday? That’s enough to ruin your week if you let the last one linger in your mind. 8:00 a.m. no less.

Three 8 a.m.’s in a row was enough to make the cut.


Screen Shot 2013-02-12 at 2.02.49 AM

Six finals, two 8 a.m.’s, and all difficult classes.

Six finals including four in one day. Brutal.

Taking 21 credits sounds like a good idea until this happens.
