JTD is the boss of Global Politics. If you want to major in politics and focus on global, you should take all his classes. Wrote his own Global textbook and it's so good you can use it as a source for the papers you write in his class. Princeton graduate, genius analyst and writer, great sense of humor. High standards but worth the effort.

Go to class, go see him in his office hours, write 3 good papers and you will get a solid grade. Very straight forward POL 105 class. You will get out of it what you put it. Reading isn't exactly required, because there are no tests or exams. He is a really good guy, who does care about his students.

Prof. Dickovick is amazing. I've never met a professor who is so interested in his students and cares so much about how they are doing. Do yourself a favor and take a class with him before you graduate.

Great professor that assigns great readings and leads class conversations that really probe the issues. Tends to have all the work due in the last week, so that will be very stressful and you will leave campus without any clue what grade you are earning. Otherwise a great prof.

Professor Dickovick is amazing. You shouldn't graduate from W&L without taking a class from him-- it's an amazing experience. They way he runs his classes is incredibly engaging. Not an easy grader, but you know you deserve it if you do well.

Great guy - we always had a good time in class. Lots of discussion, lots of reading but it's really worth it. Some of the readings are dry but others are really great. If you can find a way to game the system to get Dickovick, do it.
