You're In College... Now What Classes Do You Take?

Choosing college classes seems fun and easy on the outside, but when you're actually doing it... it can be a lot harder than it seems.

What classes do I need to graduate? Does this class count for this section of my degree? Which professors are hard and which are easy?

There are so many questions that are unanswered before you choose your classes every semester, ESPECIALLY your freshman year.


In this episode, you’ll hear from Ashley Rosario, from the University of Central Florida talk about why she has to come up with a Plan A, B, and C before choosing classes. Daniela Beck, a Forbes 30 Under 30 Scholar at Chatham University, talks about how she finds out which professors and classes are easy and hard. And you'll also hear from Taja Jafarli, from Baruch College, talk about how her school is changing what the modern class looks like.


Some of the topics I cover:

  • Why you should have a Plan A, Plan B, and Plan C for choosing classes in college

  • Where to get your information in terms of which professors and which classes to take

  • Don't take all of your hard classes at one (looking at all of you medical majors)

  • How colleges are innovating the old classroom


I was able to intern at Lockheed Martin while working at Universal Studios at the same time. The only way I was able to do that was because I mastered my schedule to a point where I only had classes on 2 days.

The point of creating the perfect schedule is to first give yourself the best chance at the highest GPA possible and second, to allow you time to grow your resume into a portfolio of numerous real-life experiences.

Don't be the student that graduates with a 4.0 and 0 work experience... trust me, you don't want to be that person.
