They just sent out an email asking for our Section preferences. Any suggestions regarding which classes to take first semester, or which Section would be best (or, rather, worst)?
I'm not really sure what you mean by section preferences? I'm pretty sure I didn't get to choose what section I was in..It was done randomly based on some algorithm that attempts (very unsuccessfully) to predict each students probability of success and assign students to each section as equally and fairly as possible. In reality this system is completely flawed but I guess there is no better way.
I guess I digressed from your initial question but can you expound on what the email exactly stated? Sections are just groups of classes preassigned with the same students in each class. Thus, you are only competing with your classmates for the A's and everybody has the exact same schedule. Without knowing professors and class times, there is no value in randomly listing a preference to be in Section 2 for instance.
