for example everyone would read up on the respiratory system (from all the major sciences like anatomy, physic, biochem ext) then be presented with a problem (a patient choking). And from there you could cover everything from the histology of the respiratory system, the physiology involved and its biochemical implications ect. The facilitator would ask questions and direct what you should need to know and how to integrate the subjects per organ system.

this way you can have a simple 1hour session and cover to what would normally be six one hour lectures in separate subjects with 150 students. everyone participates and learns actively and you're all teaching each other.

its awesome in theory especially if your group is composed of a majority of self motivated students. you really can just read up by yourself and avoid sitting in boring lectures then learn everything pertinent in concept and fully integrated within subjects per organ system.

but if your group is a bunch of lazy people and the facilitator doesn't show up to really guide you to whats important than its like a rudderless ship and a monumental waste of time better served sitting in lectures and passively learning.

I definitely did better out of being spoon fed the information than I would have done in independent study.

To this day I cannot understand why simple concepts (as simple as a BGC Matrix) can take 30 pages of a textbook to adequately explain. That level of detail I find suffocating. I'd rather hear the outline and then use discussion or questioning of the professor to understand the subtleties.

The problem with lecture based study is that there's always the dumb or unprepared student who slows down the rest of the class

I don't even want to go to classes I'd rather just read then take the exams. Always have retards in my econ class asking stupid as fuck questions like why is some pollution from a steel company ok? Because then we have fucking steel

You should have introduced her to SamSpade

I spent about ten minutes in the grocery store just looking at artisan coffees, reading all the flavor profile information and stuff. As if it matters? I'm turning into such a douchebag.

wtf?

That seems wrong.
I know that Booth is $5600 a course and you take 20 for the MBA so...$112k plus ~5k in books and fees.

If you factor in Food/Housing/Transportation/A new computer/Health Insurance, they say that full time will cost $90k per year which is getting closer to your number....but, if your employer is paying for you to do it part time, then you can't really include those costs as part of the MBA since you would be paying all of them either way.

Truck apparently ran through the middle, onto the other side. Keep in mind that this is a 6 lane highway.

And I've run out of people to call, at least there's SF.

Hrm. Sounds like it would work well for some subjects and not for others. For example, that method seems entirely superfluous in a subject like electric circuits because there's really only one correct answer and one way to solve it.
