He is so brilliant and so kind and really takes every question and comment into consideration. The material he covers is always really interesting, and his insights are even better.

(Reviewing for Philosophy 7 - Intro to Phil of Mind)
Michael Rescorla is AWESOME. Super funny, used lots of examples from movies (Truman Show, The Matrix...) to illustrate his points, very entertaining lectures. Highlights PowerPoint slides in blue if the information is "must-write-down" and is super helpful in office hours. Highly recommend this class and this professor

Worst professor I've ever had. The class was 60% reading responses, 35% final paper, and 5% participation. Reading responses are graded either Outstanding, Satisfactory, or Unsatisfactory. You can get all Satisfactory, for example, but you you won't know what your grade is in the class. At the end of the term, depending on what he wants your final grade in the class to be, he'll decide a numerical (or letter) grade for your final paper, reading responses, and participation. His grading is basically very arbitrary. He also offers 0 help over email or during office hours. Makes you feel stupid for asking questions. I'd stay away honestly.
