Most Helpful Review
Halpin sucks. Seriously, she REALLY blows. Worst professor I've EVER had. I've The fact that I've been pushed here SOLELY for the purpose of reviewing her should speak volumes to that. This review is NOT grade-sourgrapes. I've maintained a 90+% exam average, ONLY because I've retained memories of the upper division coursework I've completed prior. If you're taking LS with Halpin, do your upper divs FIRST. She makes the students buy a license for online lecture "participation". Totally trivial and unnecessary (what are we, still in highschool?) Her exams are LONG and TEDIOUS. Commit EVERYTHING on her lecture slides to memory. Lab grades are iffy. You're gambling on the T.A. there. The only positive thing that can be said about her LS1 class is that you can miss her lectures because they are boring, directionless, irrelevant, and entirely USELESS. Get some sleep instead. Because that's all you would have been doing anyway. ZzzzzZZZzzzzZZZZZzzzz...... To reiterate what has been said by so many others - Halpin is NOT an educator. She does NOT LIKE YOU. She does NOT CARE about YOU. She has NO RESPECT for YOU. WHATSOEVER. The consistency of the student body's hatred of her is a direct reflection of her attitude towards us; We do not like her. We do not care about her. We have no respect for her. As we damn well SHOULDN'T. -------------------------- If you're on the verge of graduating, remembered your upper div material, and just need 5 units you can stay home for, you might consider taking this class, AT YOUR OWN RISK. If this is one of your first biology classes, IT IS NOT WORTH IT. Taking this class leaves a dark cloud of RESENTMENT over your head, the last thing you need to stay with your for your duration as an undergraduate. The sooner ATROCIOUS M. HAPLESS is removed from teaching, the better off the freshmen and sophomore bio students will be. Pipe dream, though, considering the sway she holds with the department.
