Now that the quarter is over, here are my impressions of each course I

250a - The middle to end of the course was actually pretty frustrating
       for me, but our group project turned out well and I learned a
       lot of things (such as interacting with embedded systems).

256a - The only problem with this course was that I didn't have enough
       time to work out some details until the very end.  But that's
       just how my schedule panned out this term.  It was a lot of fun
       and I managed to accomplish what I set out to do in the time
       that I had.  Looking forward to the next course in the series
       on mobile music.

220a - Many of the assignments in this course felt like they could be
       quarter-long projects if we wanted them to.  It felt very
       self-directed in that sense.  I definitely found things I want
       to spend more time on.  Chris, Blair and Jieun were extremely

192a - I had a total blast playing with and learning about recording
       equipment and techniques in this course.  It wasn't a difficult
       course, but it has already made a practical difference in my
       life (I now understand all the functionality of the mixing
       board at my church, for example).  Looking forward to the next

320 -  I think I got what I needed to from this course.  Math takes a
       lot of exposure and application to learn well.  I got a very
       good start here but how well I master the material will depend
       on how much I integrate it into my daily life going forward.

Overall, I call it a successful term.  I'm getting what I wanted out
of the program.
