Boston University sophomore Michael Robertson died recently, falling out of a window in his 4th floor apartment to the alley below. The incident occured at approx 2:30 Sunday morning.
The story was, back in the day, if you're roomate croaked, you got an automatic 4.0 GPA for the semester. I don't know if it was true, but it was a constant source of mirth for us. Of course, the windows in our hi-rise dorm were rigged so you could barely toss a ham sandwich through them, much less your pissed roomie.
