    ok just between micro and macro which is more difficult to achieve a high grade (assuming someone works hard at both)

    I kind-of went through what I thought of these classes in the other post, but this is how I would rank the courses (easiest to hardest):

    -EC 201 micro
    -EC 202 macro
    -ACC 201
    -ACC 202

    For most people, economics is easier than accounting. Accounting is definitely a "weed-out" class more than not, while intro to economics courses are a prereq for just about every business/liberal arts major. At the same time, it also greatly depends on the prof you get. For intro to accounting courses you don't have a choice only one prof teaches all sections of the course. For economics courses you can pick and choose which teachers to take (just remember, the "easiest" teachers are not necessarily the good teachers, and vice versa).

    Thanks so much for the help! I'm looking to ultimately get into broad for business. You mentioned in some of your posts that the Econ professors vary. Which one is best strictly for getting a high grade? I know that sounds terrible :/, but broad has a gpa minimum and I simply want the best chance of getting in. (once I'm into broad I would be more concerned with a better prof than a better grade.) any thoughts?
