THIS IS BY FAR THE WORST PROFESSOR I HAVE EVER HAD. SHE IS AN UNFAIR GRADER AND IF YOU GO TO HER FOR HELP SHE WILL GO ON AND ON LIKE SHE IS READING FROM A TEXTBOOK. SHE IS CLOSED MINDED

She is the worst teacher I have ever had in my entire life. So unhelpful and does not even want to help you. Don't ask questions because she just gets mad. Do not take.

I took Meline for a couple Philosophy courses and she's great. Really sweet and cares a lot about her students - always willing to help. She also gives you all the test questions beforehand and edits papers if they're turned in early (so you can make the corrections and get an A). It's not hard to get a good grade, you just have to try a bit.

Barely use the book, she uploads everything online and color coordinates it. Gives all test questions before, so all you have to do is write down her answers and memorize. Hate philosophy and never paid attention except when she was giving answers to test questions and ended up with an A. Really knows her stuff, can learn a lot if you want.

She is a really nice lady and knows her stuff, however she is very confusing and narrow minded. She gives you the test questions before hand which is great but pretty much wants you to repeat her answers back to her in order to get full points.

If you can, avoid her. Very confusing but overall nice. If you are new to PHL, then you will hate the class. If you enjoy PHL, then go ahead and take it.

I will start with, Dr. Meline is a very nice lady, who loves what she does, and clearly knows her stuff. She also is willing to talk with you and explain things. So the downside, she is very, very narrow minded. If you don't explain things how she wants, prepare to be wrong. If you can regurgitate things back, then you'll be fine.

Definitely recommended. She's really nice and the class is relatively easy. 3 quizzes (and she gives you all the questions beforehand), 2 papers, and a final. Just show up and participate a bit, and you'll do fine.

I have her now for Human Person and I like the class. She's really nice and the class is pretty easy. 3 quizzes (one is dropped), 2 papers, and a final. You don't even have to put much effort into hw. Just participate and show up to class, and you'll do fine.

I had Dr. Meline for all of my philosophy classes at SJU. She was by far one of my favorite professors. If you cannot get a good grade on her exams, it is because you are too lazy to read. She tests on concepts right from the readings and very likely includes opinion essays on her finals. She is a great teacher, no matter what level of philosophy.

Meline is the most narrow-minded teacher I have ever come across in my life. She is extremely set in her ways and any other opinion is WRONG. She is completely unorganized, changed the topics of papers 3 days before they are due, changed the book after everyone bought the first one. DO NOT TAKE HER, hopefully she retires before you have the choice

She basically tells you the exact answers to her questions. There are a good amount of papers, but if you answer them with what she told you, then you should get a good grade. Tests and quizzes are based almost exactly from the questions she gives you, and she will even schedule an extra class day dedicated to the test if you need more help.

Pretty bad. She is stuck in her ways and by that i mean her way or the highway when it comes to material. if you express YOUR OPINION you will be wrong if it doesnt agree with her opinion on the subject. DO NOT TAKE. anybody who likes this teacher must be as narrow minded as her nad i actually like philosophy but not her way of teaching it

OK.. so everyone here seems to hate her but i dont think shes bad at all. She is kinda confusing but when youre dealing with 10 philosophers who try to answer the questions of life, it gets kind of difficult to keeep them all straight. Shes a very nice woman, interested in the arts and is a huge animal rights and charity advocate. SHES OK!

Dr. Meline is great if you like a professor who just wants you to regurgitate her own words back to her and grades ridiculously hard. The nice thing about her is that if you let her talk long enough she will inevitably end up confusing herself to no end and then one of the students will have to tell her what page she's on.

She is not as bad as everyone makes her out to be. You can get by in class by skimming over the readings, then just look up the answers to each question before the tests and make a study guide. Take notes on her answers to the questions, those are the answers she likes to see. Class was somewhat boring, but she was an easy grader on the papers.
