I would put 1 up in the top 4 just because it's the FIRST ONE so you don't know what to expect

Decided to quickly tally the thread results so far and got this:

Code:
	EOM1	EOM2	EOM3	EOM4	EOM6	EOM7	IA	FA
Average	5.3	3.8	4.8	7.5	5.4	5.6	2.1	1.3
St.Dev	1.7	1.3	1.3	0.9	1.9	1.6	1.4	0.5

Interesting to see others share the sentiment that the FA was a worse experience than the IA even though you can discuss with the others during the FA and can’t during the IA (which is a really frustrating part)

I personally hated the FA with a passion

I was getting at the bolded; as far as making meaningful conclusions, the mean has questionable value and the variance has almost no value. It vaguely reminds me of the futurism module and trying to make numerical conclusions out of stuff with no mathematical rigor.
