Florida State University - Comments and Student Experiences|
The classes are deemed to be "harder" here. However, the difficulty of a course SHOULD be based on the content of the subject, not based on unfair exams and grading. I was in an upper level chemistry lab and I had the highest grades out of all 3 lab sections, but I did not receive and A because my lab supervising professors told me "Nobody gets an A in this class". The TA's for that lab unfairly took off points for ridiculous errors, and when I asked them about their reasoning for taking off those points they basically scoffed.
I have suffered at least 4 instances where the grading of exams/lab reports/papers has been questionable. Do not come to this school if you actually want to learn. I was an A student before attending this school. I worked hard for my grades, and I still work hard at FSU. But, achieving an A in a science class here is nearly impossible unless the professor curves the whole class several points.AVOID THIS SCHOOL!
