Hi !

I absolutely love this idea! I would like to know if you guys have thought of the enrollment criteria or perhaps ways to cater students from all departments? Thanks!

Hi Irene,
Thanks for your interest in the idea. From my understanding and back background, I kind of agree with the statement that the core classes rarely help with the future job, but I assume they are added to the curriculum for the students to get little bit of an insights into those subjects which kinda help create a base for other electives. Thats just one reasoning, I assume there would be few more reason for them to be part of the package. My solution for this would be lowering the credits for these courses. For example, if 3 Core classes are for 3 credits each, they cost you about 9 credits worth. But instead, if they are combined into a single class worth 3 credits (one core class worth one credit), then you end up with 6 credits to spare for your internships. As a results you save money and time. I hope this helps.
