Also, not sure about your school, but all of the electives at mine are curved. That means that unless you can peg the class comprised of the entire bottom quartile from the rankings, the A is just as hard to get in ANY class. Maybe easier in a difficult class where the material is hard and most people either don't grasp the material or give up and take the B.
The "easier" class I was thinking about taking is definitely easier. Not only is the material easy but last semester the AVERAGE grade was a 3.95 out of 4.00 with 76 people in the class. Same numbers for the past 4 years as well. Our electives are not curved, needless to say.
take that class. get the A. nobody will care whether its easy or not. you want a good gpa, not a rigorous course load.
