Well I hold a 4.0 whilst going for 3 degrees, two of which are finished now and the last one I will finish in the fall. I took harder classes throughout my undergrad career, and can say with affirmation, I am much smarter than most people. The harder classes weighed heavily on individual thought and creativity which are essential skills a person needs in life to succeed. Go ahead and take the easy classes and you will wonder why people seem more competitive. They worked harder and it paid off for them.
Electrical engineering, microbiology, classical physics compounded with organic chemistry, and Latin my first semester.
Second semester finance classes, accounting, business management, classical philosophy, and another Latin class.
Summer semester, more physics, biology, engineering, and chemistry.
Fall semester of second year, more finance classes, accounting, and various other business classes.
Winter term, more finance, economics, and philosophy classes.
Spring semester of second year, more finance, (I finished up multi-variable calculus while doing PSEO), economics, accounting, abstract algebra II, and philosophy.
Summer, internship at UBS (was paid 2k/month for basically helping clients with questions they may have).
Fall semester of 3rd year, finished up most of the classes that pertained to international studies which were taken out of the various classes I listed above and finished the philosophy major.
Winter term, took the last of the international studies classes.
Spring term of 3rd year, fiannce, management, analytical mechanics, and quantum mechanics (physics).
Summer, well... I am resting.
My fall class list consists of finance, more physics, and my last economics class for the Finance major requirement.
Taking the harder classes helped my brain improve to greater depths and understand much more of the natural world around me. I finished up the requirement for pre-med taking all of those science classes which is also an added bonus for me. For those wanting to take easier classes, well... good luck. You want to work different parts of your brain, but whatever, your loss.
