A professor at a well-known university recently received the following note from a student, asking about taking a class outside his major. How would you respond to the student's approach?
I am pre-med major interested in enrolling in your class. My problem is I must choose a class in which I can earn an A. That means I'll be working as hard, or harder, than any other student in class. Before I enroll, however, I need to know if it is reasonably possible to earn an A in your class. (Some classes and professors are more difficult than others.) If you can give me some feedback, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you very much.
Take the poll to find out what the professor did, and tell us what you think.
What would you do?
