While Rumpus was shopping for classes this year, we came across some fantastic course evaluations. Here are some of the highlights:
PLSC 233 (Constitutional Law): Take it if you’re cool with not going to class and being equally lost. The only thing that matters in this course is whether or not you wear scarves to class, have political stickers on the front of your new MacBook Pro, and drink coffee while having meetings at Blue State. That my friends is the way to get an A in this class.
PSYC 332 (Political Psychology): Ayo so I would recommend dis class right herr. Dis brotha Professor Bullock got a mind of his own nah mean. He be teachin you how to think and feces, and not take no feces as it is from people. In other words, don’t be jus acceptin information as it is nah mean. only thing about this brotha is that he got a monotone voice nah mean. the stuff he be talkin about is usually interestin but some time you might just doze off nah mean. but he cool. tests are pretty fair, he ain’t tryna make you fail or anythin. but ya betta study for that feces or else you gonna fail. yeah, if anythin, you learn to not take feces from no one nah mean.
LATN 412 (Roman Myth and Pastoral): I really hope this semester was a fluke for the course. Maybe the large class threw prof. Solodow off balance, maybe the weather wasn’t right – beats me. Either way, this was undoubtedly the worst course I’ve taken at Yale so far. The professor is dispassionate, dry and plain old dull, the material would send an ADHD squirrel who just downed a dozen red bulls into a catatonic sleep, and the classmates were, with few notable exceptions, wholly unfriendly, solitary operators with superiority complexes. The only viable improvement for this course would be to eliminate this black stain on the classics department with extreme prejudice.
E&EB 125 (History of Life): Mr. Hickey, your lectures in this class are one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
MATH 250 (Vector Analysis): Your mathematical cajones will descend after this course.
