I Don’t Get It

About 22 Intro to Law students elected Grading Option B, which requires that they research and write a short paper.  I implore those who elect Option B to send me drafts at least two weeks before the paper is due. I stress the importance of soliciting and responding to my feedback.  The paper is due Thursday.  Today, less than 72 hours before the deadline, six students have submitted drafts for review and comments.  Six out of 22.  What are they thinking?
