So we had a 100 point group project due at midnight, and some of my group members decided to just not have it done. So I’m potentially going to have my grade ruined by these people. I am stressing out.

I've gone through similar. While the US education system differs from Australia, contact your demonstrator/lecturer/whoeverisincharge and message talk to them about it.

In my case, I was given my grade based on the work I did - especially after I included evidence showing that others didn't work even though I tried to get them too/help - while everyone else got the appropriate mark, and failed.

Wow. That's why I hated group work. I always managed to convince my teachers to let me do my work myself. Especially in a computer class I took.

If you can show you did more then your fair share and they didnt you professor should take that into consideration.

I have had the same thing happen to my students so often that I won't give group assignments anymore.

I feel you man. I always HATE group projects personally for me life is survival of the fitess and I hate depending on others to get their end done. Maybe talk to your teacher/professor about it?
