i think i could have learned more at a larger school with more resources, but it was easier for me to perform well at a smaller school. it's also enabled me to finish a year early.

I don't know if I'm at a big school, but there's definetly way too many people here. I really enjoy the resources (such as big library) but not when they're used by thousands of people. I tend to do better with smaller crowds. The price we pay for a good philosophy department, eh?

Yes... the philosophy department attracted all these students. I like the big school. Big enough classes that I can just sit there and not have to do anything. Though I am currently enrolled in a class with only 6 students... that's pretty weird.

I have 4 classes this semester:

Internship in Museology - 1 student, just me. It's an internship, so go figure.
Elementary Partial Differential Equations - 4 students enrolled, often only 2 attend.
Archaeological Lab Methods - 10 students.
Music Fundamentals - 30-ish students.

This is my smallest semester ever.

Smallest in class size. There were 2 class periods where I was the only one in my math class... it was weird.

The teacher asked me to prove something, then came and looked at my notes. I thought, "This seems a little backwards."

Then she tried to correct me on a little mistake. I had that the derivative of a function was equal to some other function, so I took the integral from a to x of that function (I didn't actually compute it, it was just g(s) or something, and we wanted it in integral form for the proof). She said that I needed to add a constant to it, but she didn't notice that it was from a to x instead of 0 to x. That took care of the constant thing, and I liked it better for the proof, since instead of cancelling constants and combining integrals from x - ct to 0 and 0 to x + ct, all I had to do was combine integral from x - ct to a and a to x + ct.

Vague explanation of a fairly specific thing I guess... hope someone can follow that.
