Dear Prof Luftweng:
I would like to request an extension on my final project in your Game Theory class (Econ 110B) on the basis of utility. In your syllabus, between item 9 on the iterated prisoner’s dilemma and item 10 on our class prediction market, you have a sidebar saying that students are expected to act in utility-maximizing fashion.
I know the syllabus also says a late project is an automatic fail, but I believe you’ll find that there’s greater utility for both of us at the point where you allow me an extension.
