A helpful tool when enrolling in electives…
I decided to take two electives this summer; I am finishing up with ‘The Horror Story,’ with Professor Avery, and I am trying to select an elective for the second summer session. Professor Avery is great and it has been a very enjoyable class. I got a 95 on the first exam, and hopefully will do as well or better on the next exam. If I can get A’s in both of my electives this summer it would definitely help raise my GPA. The greatest tool I have used to select classes has been RateMyProfessor.com.
I was planning on taking ‘Intro to Philosophy,’ with Michael Koran, but he did not get the best reviews on ratemyprofessor.com. For this reason I decided to look into other classes. What I am looking for is a class that is enjoyable and not too difficult, since I am trying to follow the path of least resistance in my final year of college. This led me to a choice between two classes, ‘Intro to Sociology’ with Prof. Levon Chorbajian or ‘Short Stories’ with Prof. Madeline Sherlock.
Both of these professors got good reviews, but I will probably end up selecting the ‘Short stories’ class, As it only meets 2-3 times a week, where ‘Intro to Sociology’ meets 4 times a week every week. Hopefully I will earn an A in both of my summer classes to boost my GPA. I am trying to get my cumulative GPA above a 3.0 by the time I graduate, a goal which has proven to be a tough challenge for me.
So when you are selecting classes, remember to check Ratemyprofessor.com, this may help you avoid classes and instructors that are needlessly difficult.
