- Professor/Class rating: You want to know how previous people rated the class, and especially the prof
- Actual impressions: It's even better to get someone who actually took the class to give you a feel for it, as some classes are perennially well-rated for no apparent reason.
- Schedule slot: Most classes are either taught in the fall or winter (spring), and not both. Also, there are X schedules and Y schedules, and you can't have too many courses in one or the other. X Schedules meet M-W, and Y W-F.
- Demand: Many of the popular courses are requested by 2-3 times as many students as they are able to accommodate.
Our Finance 2 final is coming up on Friday, and today I helped lead the review session for our section. The two resident finance whizzes in the section helped out as well, and between the three of us I think we pretty much covered the important parts. It's kind of funny to reflect back on review sessions last semester and compare them to this one. Everyone has realized now how little grades matter, and are a lot more laid back about finals. There doesn't seem to be any more hectic studying or stressing over grades, everyone is learning what they can and letting grades take care of themselves.
