Petroleum Engineering

Geostatistics
Ethics in Engineering (a couple lectures were interesting)

Those two classes sucked and I had no interest in them. Probably due to senioritis but whatever. I got Ds in both lol

The TA for the ethics class was a philosophy major with a power trip against engineers. Dude was a real dick. And it seemed like a lot of the philosophy stuff we learned was common sense.

Thermodynamics was hard as well but the most interesting in my opinion.

Without a doubt but they're so important to understanding how stresses distribute among buildings, beams etc. just for the basic engineer.

I didn't know how to solve any of those problems on the FE exam though. Passed it anyways!

Nice job

Kinda makes me wish I was in high school again. SATs can't lay a finger on the FE.

I struggled through strenth of materials, but I found it so much easier than dynamics. I ****ing kicked ass in all my structures courses. I'm glad I'm done with that for now.

History.

My hardest class would be from the last semester History of Sport in America. The connections the prof asked you to draw in the work were crazy. He was grading like this was gonna be published. He also gave complete freedom in a couple works as far as subject went. Good prep for Senior Course.

It was refreshing after breezing through some other classes.

English lit.

I'm terrible at it and I don't plan on using it ever.

Hardest class was a Neuroscience class I took to fulfill gen. ed requirements. I didn't want to spend $200 on the textbook and I never attended class because it was too long. I ended up passing with a mid-C.

I have to write a 10 page essay, on nothing.

Discuss.

I was a Sociology major for the first two years of college, but I ended up switching because I found out that you can't do much with a Sociology degree unless you go all the way into the Masters.
I'm majoring in Journalism now.
The worst class I've taken so far is Statistics. I'm terrible in math and this class is definitely going to lower my GPA this semester. I'm hoping for a C.
FWIW, I've got a 3.2 GPA. Not great but still good.

Wait, so you majored in English Literature, but you were terrible at it and you don't plan on applying anything you learned? Lol, alright.

Dude, I can't believe you took Neuroscience to fulfill a gen. ed requirement. That shit sounds painful. I took like Nutrition of Food to get that shit done with.

I considered sociology before I started college... I thought it doesn't pay well, period. Being a social worker would be pretty cool, making $30-40,000 a year would not be.
