Real (E)state of anaesthesia

It takes some efforts to have us hibernate in such a glorious summer weather in Fonty. Well, Real Estate managed it. I don't remember seeing so many people dozing off during class. Or worse, reading the FT or Les Echos (the two free business papers on campus).
True, the class started at 8.30. Yet I think there were as many people having a kip in the first session as in the second.
I'm always suspicious when a session has 3 guest speakers, on top of the Prof. All three actually are very successful INSEAD alumni in Real Estate, but that is not enough... To be fair, one was alright, as he hinted some case studies from his past experience. But honestly what did we take away from class 1 (out of 4): zilch. Ok, maybe some valuable contacts. But is it the purpose of an elective? Contacts should be a plus from the course, not the core of it...

Do you think that, as we get closer to "the end" we become more and more critical of the professors?

Or, do you think the level of crappiness (or excellence if you prefer that term...) is pretty evenly spread across P1-P4?

Hey Hallonman. Honestly, I'm very forgiving... Most people say I like everybody -which is not quite true... So hopefully next session is going to be better. It is true that INSEAD grads are tough audience, and sometimes a bit impatient.
As to the other part of your comment, I was very lucky up to now to have very good courses/Profs (from P1 to P4). So you understand my shock. I'm also bummed that many very good courses in P4 and P5 are out of reach due to bidding.
