    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Weinschenk is the best! He loves teaching organic chemistry and it shows. He likes getting to know students and answering questions.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight is definitely the professor. Most of us are there because this is a required course for medical school or for our major.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely be ready to work hard! Make sure to do the old exams he provides - some questions are the same on the actual exam!

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Orgo is a challenging course regardless of which professor teaches it. However, I Dr. McGill's tests are constructed in a way that make you have to apply already difficult concepts to new situations that we never learned about in class, which makes it even harder to succeed.

    Course highlights:

    Absolutely nothing. I do not recall a single thing about Organic Chemistry because you do not need it in life.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study Orgo every single day. Eat, breathe, drink and sleep orgo. Orgo should be the first thing you study. Don't cram for the test. It's impossible.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Morkin is a fairly good professor but her exams are exceptionally hard. In class she will explain that 1+1=2 but on the test, she will ask you to build a rocket in less than 45 minutes. You will learn from her, but your grades may not reflect how much you know in my opinion.

    Course highlights:

    I do not recall anything, nor do I use anything from this course.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to study more than 12+ hours a week for this course and you need to study every day. I definitely put off studying for this course because I had other assignments in other courses that were due sooner, but this course requires extra attention and you cannot afford to cram for the exams or quizzes.
