re: At N.Y.U., Students Were Failing Organic Chemistry. Who Was to Blame?

Organic Chem is always a weed out class.

If these kids can’t hack it now, I would hate to see what kind of doctors they will be down the road.




true but this is relative to a specific professor, not all students taking ochem. even if they retroactively withdraw (and remove their grade from the audit) the students still have to take the course again for the needed credit.

I got the latter pun.

In Organic Chemistry there is only so much the lecturer/professor can actually do. Getting As is a matter of desire and being willing to hunker down with the text and molecular models and grind it until you reach an insight and understanding of what it's all about. It's a good class.

“NYU is the most expensive college in America (or was in the recent past) “

Nope.

Ranks 53rd. $74,842 a year. Tulane ranks 23rd $76,300

Engineering is the last bastion left of profs who don’t give a frick how you feel and students either deal with it or quit on their own…And it makes organic look like the sophomore year child’s play that it is.

Organic chemistry was an easy class at lsu if you are good at a combo of memorization and logic puzzles.

If not, good luck

These dumbass do not belong in premed. There are more difficult classes than organic chemistry on the road to earning your MD.

The 1% don’t like when their kids can’t overcome adversity. They pay big money, or withhold it rather, to ensure their kids’ future success.

I got a 35 out of 300 on my three-hour organic chemistry final.
And beat the class average.

Literal occasional nightmares for years.

But I didn't blame the prof.

The students.

The professor is going off the same lectures he has probably always given and same information.

But now, because students don’t have to take responsibility anymore, it’s the professors fault.

Organic chemistry can’t be just plain hard, it’s the professors fault.

I took organic chemistry and that shite was not fun. I survived but man did that class suck

It depends. My organic professor made it seem like Sesame Street. My sibling had one at LSU that was proud that a C in his class was better than an A in other professors class. Nearly no A/Bs from this ahole. It was luck of the draw back then on which professor you had. Most students dropped before class started and took over the summer.

My wife would probably love to have him as a professor. She is currently taking Organic Chemistry II and her professor doesn't even teach anything. He gives a "lecture" once a week and doesn't even go over what all will be tested on. My wife is pretty much teaching herself organic chemistry from the book/material she finds online. I can only imagine how happy she would be having a professor who actually teaches it, regardless of how hard he makes the tests.


Same. Mine taught by PPt in distance learning (lab in person). Damn hard class made harder. Got a B because of an awesome online instructors course.
