this guy evidently hired to work for AD
Hey, hopefully this isn't too OT (or maybe you'll be relieved to get a break from all the Jimsanity), but I'm currently a sophomore and I've been fidgeting around with my schedule for next semester.
As of now, I'm a declared statistics major, but as part of the major requirements, I took EECS 183 this semester. (For anyone that's confused, 183 and 280 are both coding classes at the university). I went in to 183 having no coding experience of any kind, but in taking the class, I sorta realized I might actually like coding. The next class in the sequence for a CS minor would be EECS 280 (along with Discrete Math (203), but I would hold off on that class for now).
The one thing I'm concerned about though is that I've heard mixed reviews of the class, with half of them people saying it was one of the hardest classes they ever took and having to put in hours and hours of work just to pass.
Basically, I'm just wondering if anyone on the board has had any experience with the class and can help me make a decision. I'm also taking MATH 217 (Linear Algebra), STATS 426, and a Spanish class, so while that might not be the hardest load ever taken, I'm still concerned I don't want to overwhelm myself if I take 280. Thanks.
EDIT: Thanks for all of the input. After tonight, I would say I'm probably leaning towards holding off a semester so I don't have to take it at the same time as 217. I think I could probably do well in the class as long as I put in a lot of work, but I already have a decent load this year, and I don't want to take 280 without knowing I'll be able to fully commit. The minor is only four classes (203, 280, 281 and an elective) so I'd definitely have time even if I wait til next year to take 280.
He's a great AD, don't think we were ever interested (or had a shot)...but interesting to note.
Would've been a slam dunk hire, IMO. (Still hoping for Warde Manuel or Greg Byrne)
To all who are celebrating, Happy Channukah! To those who aren't, happy holiday-of-choice!
After the year that 2014 has been we could all use a Festival of Lights around here. Whether you're team sour cream or team apple sauce, spin some dreidels, eat some latkes, and pray for Harbaugh to come home.
What is on your wish list for this holiday season? (Other than X being hired as coach) My wife bought the helmet and display case last christmas that had been on the top of my list forever. I now must reconsider options which were once unfathomable.
For the little ones, I just bought 2 pairs of crocs for $10 each (sale today only):
Living in Columbus I'm relegated to only finding decent UM items online..
For the many of you who supported Hope for Pahokee and their community gardens project, I just got an update email that I thought I'd share to break up the CC stuff.
