Yes I have confirmed with him that everything that I signed up for would work. My college is going to go over them with me during orientation and place me during the Summer...so I'd assume maybe after you get placed (just to be safe at least).
3.3 wont be bad, it's just a B+ average. Just work hard and try to get the highest GPA possible, none of this "well, i only need a B+ overall, so I wont have to try that hard." that's when you'll get in trouble!
make sure you all talk to Ian so your classes will transfer. Get some of the boring stuff out of the way to make room for some sweet ILR electives.
PS: congratulations to all of you future ILRies!!!
Are you guys fufilling the science+Western+culture requirements dureing your first semester? I found it hard to find some of the classes that fufill such requirements, i mean, I have found classes that fufill these requirements but i'd like to take classes that both interest me and fufill the requirements.
Modern Japan (it was really hard to fit that req in a small school so I'm taking this..hoping it's good).
And I found out that I don't have to take a foreign language or math course! I thought I would have to fight for that choice, but I don't! Those are my worst subjects and I don't want to risk getting below a B. I'm going to fulfill the rest of the requirements later, I'm just hoping I get all of those now and do well in them!
dont worry so much about the distribution requirements, there are some really cool courses at Cornell that will work for those. aim for classes like micro and macro econ, 2 intro english classes, a science, a foreign language, maybe statistics.
