Classes are up for Summer 2009 and Fall 2009.

So, which ones are easiest/have teachers that don't cold call?

Houck is Houck, but I loved Natural Resources. I'm here for environmental law, though.
Millan (Hazardous Waste) doesn't cold call and his exam is take home. His class is horribly, miserably boring, though. I surfed the Internet the entire time.
Shields (Historic Preservation) doesn't cold call, and if they are still offering it as a seminar, your entire grade is attendance, a paper, and a powerpoint presentation.

Anyone who as questions about the environmental law program, feel free to PM me.

I was interested in HP, but I heard today it is sucktastic. It was 3d hand though. Thoughts?

I wish I could take the professor and not the class, but I am crim to the bone. Business/ transactional stuff makes me get the hives. Metzger/ Hoeffel are about it.



Why do I feel like there is going to be yet another pile of poo I could care less about that i have to take before I can get to the good stuff?

even worse is my feeling that this pile of poo is the good stuff

...I've got some bad news for y'all...


ohhhh, boy. are we done yet?


Historic Preservation sucks when you're actually sitting there in class. He drones on and on and on about historic preservation in New Orleans only. I learned nothing from the class time. He sends out an attendance sheet, though, so you have to be there.

On the bright side, he rarely cold calls. I stopped doing my reading after the second class and it didn't make a difference. The paper wasn't bad to write. I used pretty much all internet sources. It was almost like writing a term paper for undergrad. The 15 minute presentation was also easy.

So, if you want two easy credits and you don't mind surfing the internet for two straight hours a week, then you should take the class.

Danke. Sounds horrific.

Hey guys, I'm in at Tulane with $23,500 per year in scholarship money. I'm pretty excited. As of now, I'm leaning pretty hard toward going to Tulane. I'll be visiting on the 17th. Any other admitted students visiting that weekend?

Do you folks know if we can take summer classes at Loyola?


I'd like to figure out if I could take a summer class somewhere in the second half of the summer. . .

Last I heard - $7 or $10 an hour depending on the teacher's project.

Hey, no problem.  Did you have a nice time?  What did you think?

I had a great time and loved it. I toured for UG as well, so I already knew I loved the campus and surrounding area. I am still just trying to decide if I want to take on the debt load that attending Tulane would bring, but am up to 99.5% sure that I'll be attending in the Fall.

I'm thinking of taking his/her Domestic Violence in the Law class this summer.  The only snag is that I'd be working full-time while I was taking the class (it's a night class on Monday/Wednesday).

Is this doable?  Advisable? 

Do any of you wise upperclassmen have an opinion about D'Souza?

I get the feeling that if Tulane were in the midwest/northeast, it would be seen as more in the caliber of Fordham, Boston-U, Washington-U, GWU or USC.
