Post your school schedules!

Post by BuzzerZen »

Since I noticed a possibility of derailment in the Quiz Bowl Class thread over in Theory, I though "Hey, maybe we're bored enough to want to see each other's class schedules, and how hosed by AP/IB/actual college we all are!" So I'll go first:

1: English 11
2: AP US History
3: AP Spanish Lit
4: AP Calc BC
5: Physics 1
6: Philosophy/Comparative Religion
7: AP Computer Science

Greeks and the West
Intro to Aerospace Engineering
Calculus II
Physics I (Mechanics and Thermodynamics)
Physical Conditioning
Freshman Engineering Academy

Not too bad, though it'd be better if I didn't sleep through class from time to time.

Well, might as well bite. I'm a second-year undergrad taking the following:

1. Intro to Middle Egyptian
(i.e., Ancient Egyptian from the period of Egyptian history nobody cares about)
2. Ice Age Earth Climate
(the easiest thing that fulfills my physical science requirement)
3. "Power, Identity, and Resistance"
(this is a three-quarter sequence that fulfills my "social science" requirement. First quarter we read economic stuff, Smith, Marx, etc., second quarter we read Locke, Hobbes, etc., third quarter, we, uh, I'll find out third quarter I guess)
4. Twentieth Century World Politics
(Cold War class, essentially. For the PolySci major)

Sure I'll bite. In no particular order:
  • Atmospheric Dynamics I
  • Computer Organization and Logic (includes lab)
  • Concepts and Facilities of Operating Systems
  • Literature of the Western World I
  • Swim Conditioning
  • Software Engineering (includes lab)
The labs are definitely hoseage. But it's working far.... Next semester will probably be worse.

In case you were wondering, this is my third year doing computer science and meteorology.

Heh, why not.

Physics, non-honors
Calculus, non-honors
English 12, honors
Band, Symphony (so it's technically honors)

Semester courses
Political Issues
Creative Writing
Music Appreciation
Economics (all non-honors)

Then again, remember, no AP/IB/honors at all at my school...our coach teaches the advanced English class, which is all we get anymore. I'm reasonably sure that when she retires, the class goes away.

Rather than the sarcastic remarks I considered posting, I'll just participate. It's way better than that compare your GPA/SAT/whatever awhile back that (thankfully) got deleted.

Intro to Political Science - Honors
Risk Management and Insurance - Honors

AP Statistics
Honors English 12
AP Art History
AP European History
AP Biology
AP Biology Lab
Advanced Philosophy (3 hour class, one night per week)
Quantum Physics (second semester)
....I'm trying to decide whether I should audit MV Calculus second semester when I'll have more time because college applications will be completed.

To speak more directly to the purpose of this thread, that is, exemplifying the difficulty level of a typical quiz bowl player's schedule, I will add that only one other player on our A team has a schedule similar to this. One of our other players doesn't bother challenging himself academically because he will go to almost any college he wants to on a tennis recruitment. Our last A team player is an amazing artist/musician, so most of his time is spent in classes such as AP Studio Art, AP Music Theory and AP Pottery (I have no idea why there is an AP test in pottery).
