Opinion: 1201 - Pretty chill class and instructor. Mondays were guest speakers from companies and Wednesdays were lectures over the assignment due the night before. About 35ish questions a week between two different homework websites that only take 30 minutes max (but they're both pretty expensive to get access codes). Tests were easy as long as you study your TopHat assignments and lecture notes. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: 1310 - She is a fairly good professor.. Lectures are kinda hard to follow for most people, but since I was raised in church I pretty much knew where she was going with many things. Tests are 11 matching, 11 short answer, 3 short essay, and 1 long essay, but she grades fairly easy so it makes the monstrosity slightly better. If you do all of your readings, there's right up to 3 hours of reading/responses per class meeting of homework. There's two different essay projects during the semester that consists of a 6-8 page exegetical paper and a pre-writing that took me about 6 hours to complete. For sure my worst class when it comes to workload. She's a great person so if you have time, patients, and LOTS of both, she would probably be a fine option. - Grade In Class:B

Opinion: 1302 - TAKE. THIS. DUDE. He is such a great professor that cares for his students. We had 4 papers due throughout the semester, but they all had relatable topics that tended to get us more involved in the Baylor community, which was nice to have my first semester here. There's usually a few readings and an easy response to do as homework before every class but they are easy to complete and to understand. In-class time is usually discussion or peer review type activities with grades for just showing up. He's a tough grader on essays, but if you follow the rubrics and do not BS your way through the topics, you'll get an easy A. I'll say it again to prove my point- TAKE HIM! - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: 1308 - Do not let your first impressions of her ruin the class for you. She is VERY shy, but opened up for our class by the end of the semester. Homework is departmental so she really has no say on how much we get but it's not really a bad amount. Tests are annoying because it's the same things we learned but 75% harder than any examples or assignments. If you have any questions, she has convenient office hours and she really walks you through what and how to do anything. She's definitely there for you if you need it. Take her if you have the chance! - Grade In Class:B

Opinion: 1302 - I do not think he will come back after the Fall 2018 semester because of health issues, but if he does- proceed with caution. Lectures are the same that he gave from 20 years ago. Super monotone, dull, and not very loud, which is rough for the people in the back because of assigned seating. He really does nothing other than lecture- your TA will grade everything you do. Tests are short answer and word for word from the notes which honestly sucks. There's 6 speeches but lucky for us, the first four are easy and can be written the day before. The last two are slightly tougher, but still fairly simple to write out- for the love of God though, look at the speech rubrics on Canvas because the TAs will take off for just about anything. I would suggest the class mainly because of the easy workload.. that's about it. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: 4347 - To get an A you have to survive the midterm, complete the project and do well on the final. Dr. Bolbocean likes teaching using the Socratic method, asking questions and having a dialogue. It was engaging. You will learn a lot and you will be challenged to think hard. He repeats the basic ideas until you get it. He cares for you and he wants you to understand what are you doing and why are you doing it. His assignments are not standard, you will work hard. The project for the class teaches you to work with real world data. No self-phones or laptops. Best dressed professor. It was different, it was fun! - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: 2306 - Honestly, I put so much time and effort into this class just to get a really crappy grade. I basically memorized the textbook, yet I still found the tests very difficult and getting average grades. If you want to get an A your going to need to do more than just knowing all the concepts. You will learn a lot from the class, which I have to give him credit for, but be prepared to take a fat L to your GPA whenever you take Miles. He says his test prepare you for the MCAT, but I believe they are overkill and hurt more than help students. Most people will end up taking him because he pretty much teaches most of the people. Summary: Miles class separates those who work hard and the no-life's who always study. You'll pass if you work hard, but it's not good enough to get a high grade. (BTW you will start get "slightly" depressed after working so hard to get an OK grade...I speak from experience). Send prayers for my GPA. - Grade In Class:C

Opinion: 1305 - Professor Leskoven did an amazing job teaching some not so easy concepts in this class! She cares about each and every one of her students, and has multiple times for her office hours. I struggled in this class at first, but she helped me so much along the way! She moves very quickly, so don’t miss lots of classes, though. - Grade In Class:B

Opinion: ENG 2304 - TAKE HER IF YOU CAN!!!!! Dr. Daniel is the kindest, most respectful, encouraging, and highest-regarded professor I've had in my four years at Baylor. She cares about her students and makes even material we necessarily wouldn't have liked before the class fun and interesting. I have a new-found passion for poetry after Dr. Daniel's class and hope to maybe start making some poetry of my own. She is generous, but also knows when and how to lay down the law. I've seen the shyest to the most outgoing people in the class laugh at her humor. She is down to earth and the best all around professor I've ever had. - Grade In Class:A

Opinion: BIO 1305 - Goes over powerpoints way too quickly in class, but she does post them online. Masteringbio isn't much help with understanding concepts but they don't take too long to do. Tests are fair, especially if you go to SI and get the practice test. - Grade In Class:B
