I realize many advice on the internet are very general and unrealistic. There is nothing wrong with telling readers to “Don’t be shy” or “Enjoy first year” and why, but it would be a lot more helpful if they included how to do so. I am no one in particular, just a recent graduate who wished I was given the following (realistic) advice. I will include my own personal experiences as well.
As an upper year Science student (now alumni!), I often got asked about which courses were good to take. Here, I put together some points on what I think is important when the time comes to choose courses. At the end of this post, I listed some of my favourite UW courses that I have enjoyed taking and think you may like as well.
