Normally I wouldn't ask this, but I'm curious: why do colleges make you take sixty hours of core classes?
I guess I see why, to some extent. They want to see if you can hack it in college-level courses. The core courses give you time to decide on a major. But it seems like overkill to do 60 credits, even if you've done a college-prep program in high school. Is it because of money?
I think they need to cut core courses to 30-45 and make degree programs a bit more...thorough. But that's just me.
