    For a guest speaker, absolutely.

    For the paid regular lecturer of a course, no. I will approach him or her afterwords and express my appreciation, if warranted, but this is rare.

    I should of asked what level of school and in what country each of you are. The fact that many of you refer to classes as lectures makes me think you're from outside the states, but I suppose I could be wrong.

    I'm a law student in the states. Today and yesterday were the last days of class. We applauded at the end of every class... the end of a year of constitutional law seemed particularly momentous. I believe there was one class last year that we did not applaud in... he was a really horrible prof.

    I've already graduated... and I'm in the US. Went to a major university as a matter of fact!

    I would have happily thrown something at my Con Law prof on the last day of class... what a prick

    Mechanical engineering in the united states. Mostly small class sizes, (30-40 students?) physics was a big class 100?, analysis of mechanical components was a pretty large class. Never even thought or considered applauding. Not surprising that lawyers would go for melodrama.

    heh. I think we picked it up from the paper chase. You can catch just the last few seconds of the applause at the beginning of this clip.

    I do all the time in the middle of class.

    Sure it's mockingly, but considering the instructors I have, that's pretty much normal for the school.



    Per a quote from one of the 7th quarter students... "If I had a quarter for every time an instructor threatened to kill me, I'd have paid off my tuition by now"

    It is a strange place, but quite fun and the learning pace is excellent.

    Yes, I once applauded my American History prof after he gave a brilliant rendition of a historical political speech.

    Ha ha! My American History prof was an adjunct...his real job is being a corporate lawyer.
