Wow, now I'm getting scared after looking at my future prof's!!Is anyone else starting to get nervous? Sometimes I wish it was already November, meaning that we are settled in and somewhat know what is going on. I feel like I'm walking into the unknown in 2 weeks!!!!!

QuoteWow, now I'm getting scared after looking at my future prof's!!Also keep in mind that while sites like that can be really valuable and accurate on some points, I think disgruntled people are more likely to take action and leave a rating than people who are merely satisfied or even really happy with a professor. So the site is likely a bit skewed towards the miserable, you know? And the reasons for why people dislike a prof may not always have much to do with the prof's actual abilities; it might just be a personality mismatch or a result of the student's own underperformance or unpreparedness. I would take negative ratings as a warning to really be on your toes, not a promise that the class is going to be a horrible experience. And for the record, a couple of my favorite undergrad profs -- people I consider my mentors -- have some harsh negative ratings on their ratemyprofessor accounts.
Using very dubious powers of guestimation, I made a reservation for six people at the Melting Pot, 5:30 on Monday the 15th (if you've never done fondue, the reservation is on the early side because the meal takes *hours*). I think we could adjust up or down if we end up with a larger or smaller number, but I wanted to at least have us on the books. I'll put my name in this thread later next week so we can find each other, although I asked them to make a note that it would be a group of students who wouldn't necessarily have met before.
Who's moving into the dorms on Friday? Let's grab a burger!
Can we pick up our books yet? I will be there Thursday during the day and want to grab them. Are the classes really that cold? I was going to wear capris but not if I'm going to be an ice cube!
