PSCI 260 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

This is probably my favorite class I have taken at Vanderbilt. Prof. R is fantastic and truly cares. I didn't fully read the textbook at all, since there aren't any quizzes. As long as you have a basic idea, and can answer at least vaguely a question she asks, you'll be fine. 3 assignments, all plainly laid out, and graded easily. Easy A.

Russell is one of my favorite professors at Vanderbilt! I've had 3 classes with her. If you're interested in law school, take her class. Attendance is mandatory, participation is important, and there's a lot of reading. If you're willing to do all the reading you're fine. Her grading isn't bad; she's clear on what she wants.

PSCI115F Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Absolutely love her. She's harsh sometimes but she's a clear lecturer and she knows what she's doing. Make sure you do the reading-- it's essential. I'm looking forward to taking more classes with her!!!

PSCI265 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Main problem with class: it is essentially you reading the textbook; every class period is simply a recollection of the reading for that day, with no critical analysis. I got nothing from the actual class itself. She also often deflects questions she doesn't know the answer to by saying, "Well, what do you guys think?" Really nice lady, though.

Professor Russell is one of Vanderbilt's best. If you're interested in law - take her class. The class is a great way to see if you're actually interested in law school. Her grading is fair, and she's very clear about what she wants. The reading is required, so if you don't want to do it, don't take the class. If you do the work, you'll do well.
