HMS-203 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A
"Hilarious" "Inspirational" "Amazing lectures"

Doloff is the best: his lectures are hilarious, he cares about the course material, and he's a genius. You don't need to do any of the reading because he gives you all the answers to the tests during lectures. Awesome teacher- totally cares about students, just start talking to him and he'll tell you anything you need to know.

Doloff is an amazing lecturer. Ask him about the time he went backpacking in Europe--lots of awesome stories.

HMS203 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

His midterm and final tests aren't easy, but they're pretty straightforward and he grades fairly. Even though his classes are just boring lectures, he makes them funny and interesting. You have to take notes and read the book.

HMS300 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

One of the best teachers ever, period. No class discussions, but this may be because his lectures are so entertaining no one wants to interrupt him. Concise, interesting lectures. Really emphasizes context of the works being discussed. Also, he always lets the class out early. Bottom line: light workload, but you still learn a ton.

Comic Apocalypse is a great class. I had him for World Lit, too. Lectures are informative and work load is light. Not too mention, it was a class I was always excited to show up for.

WLITEngl Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Totally overrated. Seriously don't believe the hype in all these other reviews. It's true, he's a cool guy and he's funny, but he's not out of this world, and you'll soon forget him once you're done with his class. He does end class early most of the time, and it's true that he doesn't give a damn about who you are as an individual. He's alright.

ENG120 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Doloff is better than you. He looks like Johnny Depp and Frank Zappa, and he's smarter than you will ever be. And he's done more drugs than you will ever do. You can't win. Just take his class and marvel.

WLIT400 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Professor Doloff is perhaps the most interesting teacher at Pratt. His lectures are hilarious, and although he's not so big on individual attention, you feel bonded to him from the first day! He really covers the lesson well. Take good notes, they're worth it. He's inspirational, too, so writing while he speaks is GOLDEN. I love this man. He is GOD

ENG100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Awesome lectures, awesome cultural links. For example, our unit was based around the monomyth, so what did we watch at the end of the year? Groundhog Day. Better yet? It made SENSE. Take Doloff. Take good notes and you'll ace the class.

Doloff is great, hands down. Our class lasted an hour, never more. The reading is pretty easy but even if you don't do it he explains everything to you so take good notes. He's funny too and likes to stick in personal stories and movie trivia. I can't wait to take another class with him.

WLWL Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Doesn't give a sh*t about individual students. Uses class as forum for self-congratulatory orations. Is generally well-meaning and you can learn a lot from him, but not a life-changing professor.

WorldLit Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He's a great teacher. The class is NOT an easy A, but it isn't hard as long as you take good notes and go to class. He explains everything so well, that if you don't read the book, you still come away from the class feeling as is you read it a dozen times. If you ever have the chance to have him as a teacher, do it!

Comic Apocalyps Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

His classes are the most interesting in the English/Humanities dept...definitely worth taking, if you want to spend 3 hours a week discussing awesome books like Catch 22, Lolita, and Day of the Locust. A very easygoing guy, even if you're not that interested in the subject matter, he makes it interesting.

gives quick but very concise lectures - we ALWAYS got out of class early (it was supposed to go until noon and I don't think we ever got out after 11), great guy, take his class if you want an easy A

Going to Doloff's class is like going to a comedy club (not that I've ever been to a comedy club). You don't need to read, just take good notes and review major themes before the tests. He's hilarious and beautiful.
