A completely dead "dead week" would (a) make each semester a week longer, (b) lead teachers to have every project/final assignment due the Friday before Dead Week, which would lead to (c) massive partying and no studying from Friday before Dead Week until about Thursday of Dead Week.
Here's one vote for "it's probably fine the way it is now."
For perspective, KU only has one dead day - Friday before finals - where there are no classes. The rest of the week before finals is just like any other day in a semester.
Oh yeah, and Dan Fischer is a good kid and should be good for the University and the Student Body.
