I'm a transferring junior (assuming I get accepted), and I've never had a quarter system. Ever since 7th grade, I've been straight semester system.
Here's what I've heard regarding the quarter system:
-3 quarters in an academic year.
-Allows for a greater variety of classes.
-Super fast paced.
So, what would I like to know?
-How did you get used to the quarter system? I'd rather not end up with low grades my first two quarters trying to get used to the pace.
-Is it really that different from a semester system?
