The school is insanely difficult.AverageBiology
The school is insanely difficult. This is not a problem because in some cases it is fairly difficult, however in some undergraduate prerequisite classes there is a swath of professors who are bad at teaching, while continuing to keep the course material difficult. Without prior background knowledge in these courses I find it hard pressed to survive and do well without spending a lot of time in them. This is not to say all the teachers are bad, it is just saying that a couple of awful professors have been ruining my overall learning experience.

Question
I like CAL aQuite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
I like CAL a lot more than I thought I would. The first week of school was a bit overwhelming. Now that I have figured out how to register for classes etc., I am really happy with university life here.

Question
dang.. I thought I was smart from highAveragePhysics
dang.. I thought I was smart from high school, and of course, this place just f**ing humbled me. At physics, I realized how dumb I was compared to some freaking geniuses out there... Spent all four years catching up to these geniuses, but it's o.k. I learned the lessons of my life, and I thoroughly enjoyed everything that Berkeley has to offer, that you are not going to find anywhere else... Life is more that just studying, and it is about exploring new possibilities, and molding yourself in the process.
