Quarter Taken: Spring 2017 Submitted Nov. 20, 2017 Grade Received: A-

There was a ton of reading, and my TA said verbatim "no one gets an A in my class." I got an 83/100 on a paper and he gave me a list of things to improve. After rewriting all 10 pages, he gave me an 83/100. On the second paper I received an 83/100, and he again gave me things to improve. After rewriting yet again, a 10 page paper, he gave me an 83/100.

Papers are worth 70% but luckily the midterm and final are really easy and worth 10 and 15%, respectively.

Your grade will basically depend on your TA.

So Professor Ramos just left UCLA but I feel like I still have to rate this class.
I actually really liked Prof Ramos. She replied emails swiftly and she was really helpful. She also tried her best to make the content of the class interesting. Key word: tried. This class was boring af. I took it because I wanted to satisfy three requirements at once. But tbh, I don't think I should've. I played myself.
The midterm and final were super easy. But I'm pretty good at memorization so that's prolly why I got good grades on them. Sadly, however, the midterm only counts for 10 percent and the final for 15. The papers count for 70 percent. 70. I get that it is a writing class, but come on. And you should know, if you think that you can use your tests to raise your grades, then you should try another class bro.
Lastly, there *is* extra credit but it is literally a pretty negligible amount that will be added to your grade. I did two of them. One bumped up my midterm score up one point and the other, my final paper grade by one. The maximum difference extra cred can give is literally less than 1 percent. If you do all three, you may get like 0.6 lol.
