My S will be a DC freshman in the fall. He's currently working on assembling his class schedule.
He's finally figured out the whole WebTree on-line course selection process, but is struggling with some of the course selections themselves.
For instance, should he sign up for the 2-year Humanities series? Do many kids take that series? Since you're required to complete the entire 2 year program to get credit for any of it, he's concerned about make just a long term commitment without knowing much more than what the courses cover. There's a 1-year series - would that be more advisable?
What's the best way to satisfy the freshman writing requirement? Is it a good idea to combine that with something that satisfies some other distribution requirement or focus on something that's focused on writing? Questions like that.
Freshman orientation is when many of these questions are answered. Many schools have freshman orientations that are earlier in the summer - many have already happened. DC's isn't until right before school starts, but the registration process has to be completed by the end of June.
Does anyone know if there's a DC resource to help (particularly incoming freshman) with these sorts of decisions (e.g. some sort of academic counseling akin to what is often available in high schools?)?
