Easiest classes to pad GPA

<p>what are some of the easiest classes in college designed to pad GPA?</p>

<p>Depends on the professor and not the course. It is really hard not to get an A in my current Data Structures course, but I would not recommend Data Structures for an easy A in general.</p>

<p>physical education? pick one of your hobbies (or something you've wanted to try) and see if they have a class for it.</p>

<p>Talk to current students at your school. For instance, my sister's friend is an astronomy major at her school because it's very easy, but at my sister's school it is notoriously the hardest major.</p>

<p>Entry-level language classes probably wouldn't be too hard, I would think. My brother is taking Spanish 101 and (despite causing him to repeat every Spanish word he sees or hears) he doesn't seem to have to do a whole lot of work for it.</p>

<p>Kinesiology and Communications classes are usually pretty easy.</p>

<p>Physical Chemistry</p>

<p>Orgo (10 char)</p>

<p>Beginning music classes like learning voice or how to play an instrument.
Theatre arts lab classes are fun and easy--just have to put in the hours required.</p>

Kinesiology and Communications classes are usually pretty easy.


<p>hahahaha thanks for the laugh tonight.</p>

<p>Go take a biomechanics, exercise physiology, motor control, or upper level human anatomy or physiology course, and get back to me with how easy it was to pad your GPA.</p>

<p>Wine tasting.</p>

<p>Orgo...that's funny...</p>

<p>Intro level art and music courses, wine tasting, some phys ed, "intro to" classes like intro to psych, sociology, communication, english, anthro.</p>

<p>actually...many intro courses are among the more difficult in their subject areas when taught properly because they have the largest width of content to cover!</p>

<p>^I had two math teachers whose primarily language was obviously not English. </p>

<p>I remember my teacher pronounced parabola as pair-a-bowl-uh. Made me laugh and cry at the same time.</p>

<p>Honestly, whenever I look for an easy class, I just go to pick-a-prof. Not every school is listed under pick-a-prof, but thankfully, mine is. You'd be surprised by the GPA differences between teachers for the same class. My political science teacher had a 3.4 average gpa for my US Govt class, meanwhile, the school average for the same class was a 2.3. My US Govt teacher gave out like 50% As, 45% Bs and 5% Fs, usually because they never showed up.</p>

<p>The thing about intro classes being weeders is absolutely true, except for when they're also used for gen eds.</p>

<p>Another thought I had about this topic: it makes more sense to choose classes based on the requirements and focus on them, instead of spreading yourself out with "easy" classes.</p>

<p>I definitely wouldn't do an intro language clas (unless you has background already). I'm in Elementary french I, and we went from knowing nothing the first week to being expected to do pretty complicated grammer (even my french minor bf has trouble with this stuff). Unless you spend a semester on conversational greetings, dont expect a language to be easy.</p>

<p>Try classes that you might have already tested out of, for example, at our school, I know of two people who took Pre-Calc to get that easy A even though they already had Calc I & Calc II.</p>

Intro level art


<p>This depends a LOT on the program. At my school, which has a pretty good art major for one that doesn't require an application, the intro classs are CRAZY time consuming and the teachers has really high expectations. My intro photo class made me cry more than once--and I'd taken photo intensivley in highschool! It was a great learning experiance, but not an easy A by any means.</p>

<p>But yeah, it depends on the school, and, even more, the prof. For instance, I took two upper level lit classes last semester: one was REALLY demanding, the other one of the easiest As of my life. Ask around, use rate my professor.com, etc.</p>

<p>If you're a non-science major, one thing that is generally easy at most schools are the "pysics for poets" type classes. Now, you'll still want to check out the details on some of the classes: at my school, some science for non-majors are still fairly demanding, while others are COMPLETE jokes, but that might be a good place to start. Don't bother if you're a science major though, it would be a HUGE waste of time.</p>
