Do we get to pick our professors/class times (or even what semester we take the class)?
Why aren't class times evenly distributed? I noticed some classes meet 3 times a week for an hour while some meet 4 times for 50 minutes.
Which classes are 1 semester and which are year-long?
Do we decide when we take exams?
1. No, not for the seven 1L required courses
2. This depends on the number of credits the course is worth--for the first semester, two are four credits, two are three credits, and one is one credit--and on the scheduling preference of the professor. Also, I'm sure the school doesn't want to make the section schedules too erratic.
3. All are one-semester long except for the LRW course, which is one-hour long both semesters.
4. From what I understand, not for the required and assigned 1L courses, but yes for the electives.
