Should I take classes I know I'll do well in, or harder courses?

Mary E. Chase

The one mistake I often see students making is taking an easier curriculum to elevate their GPA. What they are doing is basically limiting their ability to stretch their academic knowledge, setting them back during the first year of college. Students who take a challenging curriculum will have a better appreciation of the work required in college and adapt better.
