Let's say, a student is counseling with an academic adviser about his next year's class selection.
Student : Now that I finished up my second year of coursework, I feel like I need some direction and I've come to see what you think of my proposed schedule for next semester.
Adviser ( hereunder same ) Let me take a look at what you've been doing and then I'll take a look at what you are doing.
Fair enough. When I was a Freshman, I took only courses that fulfilled basic requirements, you know Geology 101, Economics 150, Philosophy 102 and the like.
Yes, and your transcript indicates that you did very well in all of the courses.
That was part of my problem. I enjoyed all of the courses and it didn't help that I excelled in whatever class I took.
Can anyone teach me the last italic part, what the phrase it didn't help me that I excelled in whatever class I took could indicate? I am sorry I lost here what he would like to say. Would he have lost another non fundamental class not like that he took to fulfill the fundamental requirements?
Thank you in advance.
