I was an English Education Major and a History Minor. I didn't figure out until at least my junior year how to take the right classes. It was that year (I think) that I took the two semesters of History of England.
This was taught by Mr. or Dr. Harris. He was older and had white hair. He offered us an objective (Q & A) test and a subjective (essay) test at test time. I always took the essay test, and after the first couple, I stopped studying for them. I would write my way out of an answer.
I did pretty decently; low A, high B, I think. Oh who am I kidding, I'm sure it was a C.
My dad looked at my report card once and said, "These are the grades of a social butterfly."
