A problem set due for each class was a lot at times and grading could be inconsistent but was overall fair. The prof doesn't do the grading, graders do which meant that some people got different grades for the same work. Exams were take-home and open note which made them pretty easy. Overall a pretty easy A/A- with a decent bit of HW.

This course required a decent amount of work and you were forced to learn the material. Problem sets are due at the beginning of every class, including one Stata lab per week. Sommers is very passionate about Statistics and will say at least one or two funny things per class, good guy overall.

This class has a TON of work each week. There is a problem set due nearly every class and they are not quick, however, I found that this style does make you actually learn the material. Tests are take home but very time consuming. Classes are lectures that you can find yourself zoning out of until he cold calls on you. I actually enjoyed the class but I did have to earn a good grade, as it will not be handed to you. Class also features a Stata lab every week and a research paper that was fun to do.
