Can’t upvote this enough.

Every TA was Indian or from China for me.

I still hate Paul frickin Kirk


He really is bad. Fun story....used to go swim at the rec early in the morning. Paul Kirk is an old naked locker room guy. Really awkward to go to a class where you already hate a professor when you've seen him naked.

Hardest was Thermodynamics in terms of passing

Hardest material was a 4000 level math I took as an elective where I had to write proofs and shite. I never got a single test answer "correct". One test, I just doodled an intricate picture of Godzilla attacking a city. I got enough partial credit (he even gave me points on my doodle), that when he curved each test due to the whole class bombing, I ended up with a comfortable C.

Drug Literature Evaluation

We would get these long journal articles and the questions answers pertaining to the article were either a) true b) false or c) can't be determined . Never prayed for a C harder in my life

I was always a science/math kid but didn't want to be an engineer or MD, I always wanted to be an attorney. So I got a BA/BS in English Lit and Chemistry and then practiced Med Mal and products liability where I got to make use of my science side. I always took a ton of hours because they didn't cost extra except for the books and lab fees.

History major here, so not too many hard classes, but History of Russia was rough. It was comprehensive in scope, so there was a ton of stuff studied that average Americans just haven’t been exposed to or heard of before. Took away from the class that the place has always been brutal and probably always will be.

This. Everyone always says it's easier than organic 1 because you're just building on what you've learned, but that's not so much the case if you didn't learn shite in organic 1

re: What was the worst, hardest class you had in college?
Worst and hardest class I took was prokaryotic molecular genetics. The class average was like a 55 after the first test, half the class dropped out or just quit coming by the end of the semester. The course was required by my committee so I couldn’t drop it. Stuck it out and squeaked out a C my actually grade was like a 57 or something , only one A and that was in the low 80’s.Professor was a major asshat, who only talked about how much better he was than all the other bio professors and how shitty the department was. Then he would burn through about 60 power point slides per lecture.

P Chem was pretty ridiculous. Particle in a box is impossible to understand until it just clicks.

Worst had to be Statics with Jacobs.

re: What was the worst, hardest class you had in college?
A wierd senior level poli sci course I took as an elective because of this girl I liked.

Instructor was a highly regarded doctoral student who was brilliant but with zero life experience.

I wrote every 20 page paper with the sole intention of irritating him to his very core.

I would looked like an insane guy in my office, stacks of books everywhere, hundreds of note cards. My papers were trolling works of art.

He hated them. Called all of my theories bull shite and crackpot.

Two years later, the Arab Spring kicked off. The savages chose radical Islam as their government, and I looked like a prophet. I harassed him via email for six months saying I was right

re: What was the worst, hardest class you had in college?
probably Math 4038- math methods for engineers

I think I made a 100 on the first test, then like a C, F, C and barely scraped by with a C in the class. It was my last class and I already defended my thesis.

It wasn't so much the material itself being hard, as much as not knowing what in the hell it would be useful for, which made it terribly uninteresting, and thus hard.

I majored in computer science and minored in math and they were all easy. Should have brought my talents outside of the Louisiana public education system so I could have been truly challenged. The worst was the lab to go along with the second physics, electromagnetism, because it was on a Friday from like 2-5

Being old I was fortunate to go to college in a era when 99% of the engineering, math, chemistry, physics professors and graduate TAs were born in America, and spoke English as a first language, that was probably a bonus of a full letter grade.


This got me thinking back, I was in college and grad school from 85-92 and I am pretty sure every prof I had was born in the US and I never had a class taught by a TA except on occasion a TA would hold my legal writing class when it was just an explanation of the next assignment.
