Do you enjoy group projects, or does the thought of one send into a panic?
How often do you have to do group projects in school?

I detest group projects. I always hope that I have really bad partners that will let me do everything myself and then take credit for it.

Group projects make me physically ill. I work very hard for my grades, and putting those grades in someone else's hands. UGH! Luckily I am generally lucky enough to end up with the people who don't want to do anything at all, and I am able to do it all myself.

I have a love/hate relationship with group projects. My first one during this degree was a disaster. The group leader refused to share any of his ideas even though it was his project and one of my team members went to jail. The worst was that I was relegated to doing artwork because they thought I couldn't program because I was a girl. By the time they realized that I knew what I was doing and gave me stuff to do, the semester was over and I spent 72 straight hours finishing the project with no input from any of my team members.

After that fiasco, I took charge of all further groups. I ended up doing most of the work and pulling several fellow students through some really tough classes. Every once in a while a team member will come back to me and tell me thank you. I don't really mind, because I'm a bit of a control freak when it comes to that kind of thing.

As far as frequency, I would say that I've had a group project 2 out of every 3 semesters since starting this program.

I completely forgot to answer the frequency part of my own question! lol I have had 2-3 group projects each semester, except for this one where I have managed to get through without any group projects! YAY!

I hate group projects. I always get stuck with people who don't pull their weight. Also I can't be running around at all hours of the day to meet up with people to complete projects. I'd rather just do everything myself. Luckily for us, my school is a business school and a lot of the students come to school straight from work. We don't get assigned group projects because the professors realize we don't have the time to get together and work.

I am hoping it will be that way when I transfer to my next school. It's a business institute that deals largely with non-traditional, working students.
