freshman seminar selection

<p>I am having trouble finding a freshman seminar that is interesting and fits with the other classes I want to take.</p>

<p>If I wait untile Spring semester, will the choices change, and will there be more or less options available?</p>

<p>Choices may change, but they won't decrease. Just as many frosh need to take seminars in spring as fall (that's what they bank on. They make room for about 1/2 to take one in fall).</p>

<p>Thanks, Bernie. I am pre-business, and have these classes lined up so far:</p>

<p>Business Calculus

<p>What might be another type of course to take? I need Econ, but am unsure if that would be too much for my first semester.

<p>All of those classes are fairly simple (Spanish will likely be the most rigorous, but the grade comes easy if you do the work). Get in the econ. class. Intro. econ. is easy. With a schedule w/those 4 classes plus PACE and Health, it should be quite an easy semester I gather. You'll be alright. I personally know that the B-school is fairly easy to moderate at worst, but you have to take like 5-6 courses at a time, so it'll be questionable if you can't handle this schedule plus econ and I'm pretty sure you can.....with grace.</p>

<p>Econ wouldn't be too much for a semester. Plenty of students at Emory take 16 credits per semester instead of 12. You can always drop or withdraw if needed. This is your first semester; you get to take more risks and they are more forgiving.</p>

<p>MOST take 16 instead of 12. 16 is a normal load and many take much more.</p>

<p>I will be taking 16 credits (4 courses) plus PE, etc.. Just wondering if 2 business type courses in my first semester might not be best.</p>

<p>They really aren't business type though (just because the calc. has business apps. does not make it harder/The course is apparently pretty easy) and even business classes are easy (there may be a few exceptions, but they are in the B-school and even those would only be considered moderate). You will be shocked at how simple these classes are, trust me. You should at least make a B+ in those 2, and that's w/o much work (if you work and study on par to the syllabus recommendations or w/e, at least an A- should be guaranteed). Despite the grading curve (where 80%+ still get As and Bs anyway) people complain about in the b-school, the track is not that rigorous at all. Needless to say, it's still rewarding. Easy-moderate workload, possibly big payoff opportunity wise and some good experiences.</p>

<p>The decision is ultimately yours, dude. You will have to live with it. Not us.</p>

<p>Great. Thanks.</p>

<p>I've been looking for freshman seminar classes to put into my shopping cart. I couldn't find one class that is open and matches my interest. Are they ALL closed??</p>

<p>They will not open up until frosh registration.</p>

<p>Thanks Bernie, I should've seen that. Do you know if it's the same with English 101, Calc 112z, and Health 100 (couldn't find Health 101)?</p>

<p>Also, what's the difference between Calc 112 and Calc 112z?</p>

<p>112-Z will review some 111(AB) concepts before moving on. It is also possible it'll go into a little more detail when it gets to calc. 2 stuff. Also, it isn't uncommon for it to have better instructors from what I hear. </p>

<p>Yes, same applies to Eng. 101.</p>

<p>Don't know anything about Health, I assume they'll tell y'all about that during orientation. It should be ready by then.</p>
