First off, congratulations: You’ve entered Week 2 of freshmen year at Harvard. The study cards are in, you’ve had the obligatory PAF froyo/JP Licks date, and if you’re really on your game, you even have a few friends you can group text for dinner!
It’s often difficult to make sense of the Q, Harvard’s rating system for workload and satisfaction of classes based on evaluations from former students. What does a 3.48 workload actually mean? Should I take a class with a 1.98 workload burden even if I won’t get satisfaction from taking it?
