Evolution, Development, and Disease
Fall 2022 - This class sucks. Karen has us watch prerecorded lecture videos in addition to watching her in person lectures. A lot of the lecture videos she made us watch were made by random dev bio YouTubers. We also have exams scheduled right after Halloween and thanksgiving. She also made us take an exam at the end of week 2! When we were taking the exam, she realized that she forgot to print two pages of the exam. She yelled across the lecture hall at a TA telling him to print the missing pages. It was so hard to focus on my exam amidst all the commotion she caused. Her temporary solution was putting the missing exam questions on a projector, but it was impossible to see since so many questions were missing. When Karen realized that this wouldn’t work, she had us walk to the front of the room to look at it until we finally got the missing pages with 10 minutes remaining. She decided to give us an extra 30 minutes, but we had to finish the exam outside. There were literally 240 students sitting on the ground taking the test in their laps. She also has no office hours and is never available to speak with students outside of class. She gave me a BS excuse to get out of speaking with me. Avoid her class, and her in general!!!
