Anyways I know you guys graduated and all, if any of you still have 1-2 semesters left, check out Sylvain Pagé's class. Forgot the name, but it's a French class and it's basically a history class on sciences. Best class I've ever had, actually listened and learned so much ****.
They renovated the Asian Lounge. Looks pretty slick, still kind of intimidating for non-Asians.

Funny...I kick ass as the LA Kings in NHL 11 too - also, the class is called "Science Moderne" or something along those lines, tried to take it but was full, ended up with Gauvreau.

Considering I deal with Habs on a daily basis, I'm used to speaking to them like normal human beings, unlike some Bruins fans on this forum.

In the end, we're all just hockey fans, right?

Her classes were also much more "interactive" which made the lectures less boring. I know other people in their COMM 210 who felt like killing themselves because the teacher would only talk for hours on end. She has interesting and fun activities, and most importantly they don't count for marks.
I had Barbara Reda for both 210 and 222....VERY hard marker. Wish I had another prof for those classes, but in the end, she's quite a good teacher.

Quote:
COMM 212: I had Philip Colas. Our group did extremely good work on the oral and he gave us an 85. I was really pissed, but then I realized that was the best grade in the class. For a guy who doesn't do much, he marks REALLY HARD. The good side to him is that his classes end early almost all the time, he's bat-**** funny and loves talking about his life, gives 30 mins lecture and lets you do your group project for the entire semester. I ended up with an A- but it was the best grade in class so can't complain. Also the exam is a joke no matter what.
I had Paul Labelle....don't think he teaches anymore, but he was a hard marker as well. Luckily our group killed our project and I aced to exam to get an A.

Quote:
COMM 215: Pick your poison.
Pretty much spot on. Just don't pick Bayne....worst professor EVER. I literally had to learn from the book myself because he kept making mistakes in class. Luckily got out with an A despite his ineptitude.

Quote:
COMM 217: Stanley Mroz. Stanley Mroz. Stanley Mroz. Stanley Mroz. Stanley Mroz. You can thank me later. I promise you, he'll make you succeed as long as you're willing to listen and do the work outside class (trust me, I didn't listen nor did work outside class, but I still managed to do okay, and I thank him). He's one of the best Accounting teachers at JMSB, anyone will tell you.
I had George Kanaan and he was fantastic, but I think he only teaches one section a semester. Takes time going over the material to make sure students understand the concepts and can apply it to problems.

Coldplay, as for when the names for professors are released, I think it's only done closer to the fall, so you can only pick classes based on professors during the summer. That's one downfall with the registration process.

Yeah, pick your schedule based on time slot first. When the teachers names are released, see if you can make your schedule better.

Carrier's Comic Book class was a great time. One of the best classes I've taken, at least on an entertainment factor.

Also, I can relate to the whole Culture shock. From Chateauguay, I knew maybe like 3 people coming in, and the whole first semester I did the whole scene kid, wear tight clothes and don't talk to anyone. Now I still do that , but I talk to more people.
- Sorry to hear dude.

- It was fun for sure, just saying it was also very easy. His 103 class was boring though, 2 hour lecture and we weren't analysing drawings or visual symbols and the like.

- I only started meeting people partway through th first semester (and Coldplay only after weraing a Detroit shirt after they kicked Montreal's ass in a shootout ).

I agree with this. Definitely not "harder", it's the cliche that goes around before you even get to Marianopolis. Soon you're a master procrastinator.

And if my current social track record (in terms of fraternizing with members of the opposite sex) is any indication, I don't think JMSB will be any different than Mario.
- Who's this clown?

- Yeah, Carrier left a nice first impression

- Concerning Uni preparation, my theory is that Marian only teaches you how to procrastinate efficiently.

- Lies.

Kidding. I'm sorry for laughing haha.

I might? I'm good with names, I'll take a shot: If you had this crappy architecture class first semester, I was the guy with the long curly hair (which is thankfully gone now).

If you see a good looking guy with a short, clean haircut and nice clothes, it's not me.

Coldplay, just to give you some more options:

210: Raymond Paquin. He’s a really good teacher but kind of a hard marker. When I took his class, he put together the groups so if you know someone in your class, you likely won’t be with them.

217: As someone already mentioned… Philipnery. He made the class so easy and he’s really cool.

220: I had Loretta Hung. She speaks non-stop for 3 hours straight and packs your brain with a lot of information by the end of class, but she’s a great teacher.

222: Tima Petrushka. She’s so sweet and nice, and gives great PPT slides. I just skimmed through the book because she marks easy.

224: I had Tieshan Li. He showed us Superbowl commercials every class and he explains the material very well. Again, I didn’t buy/read the book because his PPT slides were that detailed.


---
I don’t know if this is allowed, but does anyone buy photocopied books? I got a little paranoid the first time I visited one of those shops.

As long as you don't bring them to class, you should be alright.

Profs are told to take photocopied books away from students, but some of them just don't care because they know the prices are outrageous.

Stores closed before I needed to buy books last semester which pissed me off. Ended up spending too much money for useless textbooks.

I get them from Asians. You call them, tell them what book/class you need them for, they meet with you around Verdun metro and done. Great quality and cheap too. They're even thoughtful enough to split the books into 2 if they're too big.

My COMM 217 teacher didn't even mind when I brought my photocopied book and asked him questions from it. That's a great teacher, there to teach and doesn't care what type of textbook you use. Obviously don't bring a photocopied book to the teacher that WROTE it (lol).

Just wondering if any of you that are in either of these programs (or any specific branch of them) could let me know how you like your classes, campuses, communities, etc. Any feedback would be nice. I got accepted to life sci at U of T, and engi at Mac and U of T (only mining engi right now, waiting for response from track one), so any info on those would be extremely nice too.

Thanks guys.
I know you started this last year but I hope you didn't go to UofT....Life sci and other sciences like math, physics will make you work too hard and your prospective of going to grad school won't look too good afterwards.

The expected average will be a C or 67. Most of my TAs here didn't do their undergrad at UofT.

Had an exam and I killed it.

I would be happier if I didn't need to do very well to simply pass the course but that's what being lazy and not doing assignments does.

Yeah but what about the popo? Obviously I didn't go waving my book around but what are the consequences if I'm caught with one?

I worked extremely hard over the last 7 days to get ready for my two physics exams and I did both of them today. To be honest, I was extremely pessimistic but things went much better than I expected. I think I may have salvaged that semester. I still need one miracle however and it's not going to be easy. The difference this time is I do have some kind of motivation

Glad to hear it's going better man, you never know sometimes, I always feel awful after an exam but I always do well. You just gotta keep on pushing yourself and moving forward, take it one step at a time, if you try you're best (even if it's at the end of the semester), then there's nothing to be ashamed of really
