I took this my first quarter at UCLA and worked my ass off unnecessarily (didn't understand P/NP for fiat luxes) because there was a lot of reading/writing for a one unit class if you do everything assigned. That said, what an interesting class! Professor Waldinger is great. So kind and passionate about what he teaches. The live discussions were really engaging and the weekly discussion posts also really made you think. Super applicable to real life (we discussed plenty of current events/election stuff etc) and I learned a lot. I would absolutely take this again.

FOR SOC 151: COMPARATIVE IMMIGRATION

Mr. Waldinger is known around the country for his publications in immigration. He is SO intelligent! He was a great professor.

The class:
-Class consisted of 7 weekly essays (300-500 words; 21% of grade)
- One midterm (10-15 pages; 34% of grade)
-One final (10-15 pages; 35% of grade)
- Attendance is mandatory (10% of grade; miss more than three days and you lose 5% of grade).

How to get an A in this class:
-Do the readings and answer the discussion questions (if you do them you will save a lot of time when the midterm/final come).
-Save your weekly memos as midterm questions are relatively the same thing.
- Show up

Overall: I thought this class was awesome. Immigration is such a heated topic and I learned a lot. I would definitely take it again.

Prof Waldinger is the best in small seminars like this, if you get a chance to take a small class with him (as opposed to the big Soc electives on migration he teaches - though those are also good), do it! He is the real deal.
