  2. Clas 202, Anth 102, both ez 90%+ (95%+ IMO). Watch out for clas 104 - if online it's actually quite tough.

    1. ^this.

      Econ 101 was easy, but reading that text book and attending class was so must difficult thing to do in first year.

  4. INST 101 is bird elective. I think there was a midterm, final and essay. With three electives, you probably should pick at least a couple of them based on your major and not just their level of difficulty if you intend on learning something useful.

  6. I second the poster that suggested you choose things you like. When you're genuinely interested in the material, you're more likely to do the work (even essays). I did a hell of a lot better in Psychopathology than I did in Sociology of Adolescence (both breadth requirements) simply because I liked the course better, not because of how easy the courses were.

  8. Watch out for ENGL 109, its a lottery with the TAs. Most are good, but some (looking at you PhD students), think they're the shit and have retarded standards
