I always sit down somewhere else. Sitting in the same place everytime means routine to me and I hate routine. Besides, routine is unhealthy. I believe having too much routine in your life makes it harder to learn something new and if you can't learn anything, you become more prone to dementia.
Studies have also found that people who generally study in multiple places (could be a combination of a library, home, coffeehouse, etc) are also generally better at getting info than those who only study in the same spot every single day.
I normally sit up front and I still barely get Cs in my classes; but that's due to my lack of studying and missing class. I don't know what the hell is wrong with me, I guess I just don't value college as much as I'm suppose to.

In a small lecture theatre I sat pretty much dead in the middle. In a large lecture theatre I tended to sit about half way to 2/3 of the way up in the right hand corner - I was usually very attentive but trying to hide at the same time. Pretty much like in the cartoon

I've dreamt in my life dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas;
they've gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.

I sat in the back, or the back of the middle, and sometimes a corner if possible. I hate to sit in the front anywhere.....I feel like people are staring at me (paranoia!). I aways prefer to be low-key. I can relax more easily then & pay attention.
Oh yeah....and it's easier to sneak in late that way
What was your GPA?
4.0+ in HS & 3.8+ in college (high As).
did where you sit in class correlate with classes you did better or worse in?
No, I consistently got good grades.

It usually didn't have any effect for me. Except this one year where we had religion classes taught by some old fella that was half blind. And I sat on the front row at his desk side. And with every test he made he had the answers to the test on his desk so we could just read them right off, changing context a bit to get easy grades. It was also particularly fun because me and my desk mate sometimes turned the time ahead on his pocket watch when he left it on his desk during class by 15 mins and 15 mins before the end of the class claim the bell must be broken again as it's already time. And he'd check his watch, agree and let us off early. xD
I bet he always suspected us, but he never addressed us for it. Oh well, maybe because we had good grades on tests he didn't mind much? xP
I always sit at the very front at classes that I'm interested in like Biology and Physics. I also therefore tend to get better marks in them.
Classes that are important, but I find it hard to stay focused on like chemistry, sometimes Math when it gets boring (algebra that is), Latvian (hate that class), Literature etc. I just sit at the middle desks. This is where I always sit, when I'm not sure about my capabilities in that particular subject.
Boring classes where I probably know more than the teacher like Economics, English and my Business stream related subjects such as Etiquette or Management I always take the last desks, rarely pay attention, draw, surf on the internet or read, but i still manage to get straight As, so I don't feel like I should bother following anyways.
