"I'm not in the mood for gambling with my grades :-)

If it's a course about learning to use MS Office then of course you should be using MS Office. If it's a course where the layout of your final piece of work is critical to your grade, you should be using proper layout software. Other than that I can't think why OpenOffice should affect your grade.
"

"Send me an (editable) file that looks right when opened with Office 2003" is the only real requirement...

Usability glitches or startup times are secondary to me. As I said, 100% compatibility is the only *must have* for OpenOffice.

It's an MS world, gotta live with it somehow.
