Group Meeting in Shambles After David Leaves for the Weekend

Members of Wharton sophomore David List’s marketing class thought everything was in order for their group meeting scheduled for Sunday at 1 P.M. until he hit them with a curveball that brought it all crashing down.

“Hey guys, I’ll be away this weekend, so I can’t meet,” List informed the group of three via Messenger at 8:30 P.M. on Friday.

Important components of the group’s project relied on List, and his absence would effectively render the meeting useless. “I don’t know what to do,” said group member Karen Lin (W ’22). “We’re so fucked.”

Attempts to reschedule the meeting have not proceeded smoothly. Lin has an exam on Wednesday, so she can’t spare any time before then for some reason, and reports that the other group member can’t meet anytime other than 1:30-2:00 A.M. on February 3rd, 2020.

List has suggested that each group member simply do what they can on their own. “I’ll make my slides by Tuesday,” he promised.

UPDATE: As of Thursday, List’s single slide consists of a title, “Research,” and an unformatted text box saying “data goes here.”
