    I'm taking art appreciation and boy do I suck at that.

    Poly sci, math, and psychology no problem but hell I just don't know anything about art.

    For me, differential equations were easy. Math for science and engineering was a little tough.

Pathetically easy subject which is taken by the vast majority of the student population because they can drink their way through college and still maintain a B average. As I said, educational standards need to be strengthened.
    Totally agree.


    BTW, I'm starting my masters in psych this fall.

    I think English and Literature are great subjects (in fact, I too think that Literature has been well too watered down by the PC thugs), but yes I also agree on your assessment of science in high school. I took a lot of science in high school cause I could take them as electives basically. I had 2 years of Chemistry, Biology, and Physics when I got out. I think study hall needs to be done away with, school should be extended by an hour, and we should seriously entertain either 6 day school weeks or getting rid of things like summer vacation. This isn't the Dark Ages anymore, the collective human knowledge base has grown quite large and it takes time to learn it.

    I'm the reverse. I was great at the scientific maths. I think my problem with Diff EQ was that I had already decided to switch majors at that point and was pretty much just mailing it in.

    Science came natural to me and I love it. I'm trying to school my 7 year old in basic chemistry and how to form a hypothesis.

    I had so much Shakespeare I could throw up. The always did non interesting works. I couldn't stand it.

    When I was an undergrad, I officially had 2 majors and 3 minors, but that's because that's all the space there were on the sheets. I had enough hours for others as well; including English. I took a course specifically on Shakespeare one semester and loved it. I also took one on Greek/Roman mythology. And one on American literature. That one was awesome, so many great authors.

    At the moment I'm a chemistry major, when I transfer out I plan to trying to get a chem engineering degree. If I can I'd like to get one in electrical and mechanical if possible.

    Thats just for fun though.

    I like the Greek and Roman philosophers but I've never gotten to take anything on that so Its mostly self study for me.
