Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course is one of the best at USC, with one of the best writing professors, with some of the most motivated peers you'll find. Thematic Option attracts some really great people, and I'm sure you'll meet some people you'll enjoy working with. The only possible downside is the amount of reading and writing, so plan your courses carefully to allow for the extra workload. It's worth it though, really.
The highlight in my experience was the one-on-one writing coaching. You don't find that kind of personal attention in many undergrad programs (from personal experiences of parents and other students here on CH).

Advice for students:
First consider the requirements : This course is part of the Thematic Option honors program, so will require extra reading and writing. If this sounds like something you'd like, it probably is!
