SHE'S AWESOME! WHAT A ROCKSTAR! She works you hard because she genuinely believes that we are the future of American politics and we need to know our stuff, so people should lay off the criticisms. Fantastic lectures, interesting readings, and she really keeps the class connected to current events. Hard tests, fun essays, 100% percent worth it.

She's a strict grader, yes, but her lectures are incredible and she holds consistent office hours.

she's incredible. like, i want to be this woman when i grow up. but don't take this class unless you have to or can take it s/nc. i studied like a maniac--there's no other choice. you also are screwed if you think you can skip lecture and pass. if you want to learn a lot and don't mind being antisocial for the semester,

If you go to Brown, this is a professor you should avoid at all costs. If you're interested in one of her classes or they are required for you, wait until someone else is teaching the class. She is scary, intimidating, entitled, and constantly gives off the impression that she wants everyone to fail. Seriously...STAY AWAY!!!

Crazy hard class, crazy scary prof. Wait until another prof teaches this class if you need it for the concentration.

She feeds my enthusiasm for the subject and I love attending lecture. But there's no reason to teach through intimidation. It's nearly impossible to break down her harsh exterior, even at office hours. I put in SO much time for this class, and still do mediocre. I don't regret taking it, but I wish it weren't so incredibly difficult for no reason!

I think she is one of the best professors at brown. If you take her class s/nc you will have a great time because you learn a lot without having to worry about grades.

This professor was a godsend. She is the kind of professor a student dreams of having when he/she goes off to college. The FYS was so substantive and her grading really helps the student's writing improve. American Presidency was the most interesting lecture class I have ever attended. She's tough, but her classes are definitely worth it.

Phenomenal class, everyone should take "The American Presidency." Schiller is an amazing professor.

Repeat verbatim everything Prof. Schiller says in class, and memorize the resume of every politician or staffer who has served in the US Government during the latter half of the 20th century and you'll have a decent shot at passing this class.

She's an excellent teacher and lecturer, but the tests are very difficult. Her expectations are also unrealistic. On one test, the highest grade was a low C, so she assumed that none of us had studied. Make sure to take her clesses S/NC. You'll still have to work to pass.

She is definitely smart, but her expections of students are absurd and just frustrate them rather than help them learn. The class felt designed to torture rather than test its students. Its standards were arbitrary at best and blatantly unfair at worst.
