    I love my classes that are mostly discussion. Luckily, I've been here for three years and I've had one class like that.

    Yeah. What she said. During undergrad I would skip my huge lecture classes occasionally if I had something better/more important to do or if I was really tired, but for the most part I went. I took freshman sociology my senior year...and that was probably my most-skipped class. The class was like 200 people, and I felt like I was surrounded by children who spent most of the class time facebooking on their laptops or sending text messages...plus, the material we were discussing could be considered common sense.

    Now that I'm in graduate school I am terrified to skip a class. Each one is 3 hrs. long so there is a lot of material to miss out on. Plus, I think my largest class is has like 30 people in it. There is way too much discussion to miss out on.
