Comment: Compared to Fulton, Scheffler is a douchebag. Super rude, arrogant, and one of those "old boys club" types. He's made quite sexist comments in class before. Other than personality, the class isn't too bad. Lectures are dry, assignments easy, and study for the final because it screwed me over in a class I expected to do well in.

Comment: If you ARE interested in healthcare, then I don't think lectures will be dry. At least for me they weren't. You'll be tested on all the econ concepts they go over in class. That said, they won't try to trick you or anything, but they do test your understanding of them. Do well on the problem sets and quizzes! The policy memo isn't too bad if everyone in the group does their part, and READ the prompt. You're supposed to write a policy memo for a very specific target. I know a couple of people who didn't "answer" the prompt and only got passing grade. Easy class, but you still need to put in work if you want an A. The GSI's from my semester: Lina, Mary Ellen and Beth are all very helpful so that was good. Overall, good class if you're interested in the subject and not hard to handle.

Comment: Took it as an econ elective and turns out there is minimal econ/very easy concepts. The class is more based on knowing the details of healthcare policies in the US. The lectures are pretty dry but the guest speakers that we had towards the end were actually very interesting. The quizzes and the problem sets are super easy if you're an econ major and they scare you with the policy memo but if you just go to office hours that isn't as bad as you think too. Memorize/understand all the material they give you and you'll ace the finals. A must take elective if you're an econ major
