Apparently, someone either didn't get the e-mail or can't read.
Quoting Dean Richard's email: "Specifically, students in this section would carry 14 credit hours in the fall semester and 16 credit hours in the spring semester. Students would attend classes every afternoon and every evening, Monday through Thursday, sometime between the hours of 1:40 and 8:00 p.m. There would be no Friday classes. Students with the Monday through Thursday schedule would have 3 final exams at the end of the fall semester and 5 final exams at the end of the spring semester."
I love how people on this forum start with the assumption that they know everything and then try to form conclusions from there.
Thanks for the vote of confidence, however, my email said this:Specifically, students who select this new schedule option would carry 14 credit hours in the fall semester and 16 credit hours in the spring semester. Classes would meet anytime between the hours of 1:00 and 8:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday. There would be no Friday classes.
...but I see where you are coming from.
Could someone post the full email? I'm a rising GW 2L and trying to figure out how the credits break down (this is the first I've heard anything about a new section schedule for 1Ls). You'd likely have to take both Civ Pro I and Contracts I, which are both 3 credits, and LRW, which is 2 credits. That's a total of 8, and to get to 14, you'd have to take either two 3 credit classes or a 4 credit class with a 2 credit class.
So it seems like you'd likely have 4 exams anyway, unless they're combining LRW into a single semester 4 credit class (which would suuuccckkk). Def please fill me in with more info, though. I'm glad to see the administration trying out some different approaches and giving the students some more flexibility.
