Awful

I was Professor Schwartz' teacher assistant for CSE 354. Surprisingly, I've never seen any professor who handles a class in a worse way than this. He never talked to us about anything. He expected us to know the homework and help the students without knowing that it had been released. Since the classes were online, he needed us to monitor the students, but he told us about it like an hour ago.

Awful

I've taken over 150 credits of college classes and Prof. Andrew was the most terrible prof I've ever taken. He doesn't seem to care about the students and is super messy whether it's releasing assignments or grading them. To clarify, my 150 credits are even distributed through 5 colleges in NY.

Awesome

I feel like people are trying to take out the whole online classes issue on him, but it's actually not his fault. He used respondus for online exams, which is a garbage program and pure spyware. Poor choice but nobody knew anything to start with. He's honestly a good lecturer and professor, and I feel like this is what matters.

I honestly don't understand why Prof. Schwartz is getting bad reviews. He's amazing!!! Yes, his exams are hard, but he gives interesting lectures. What you see on exams are also those you get from the textbook. Only thing I hate is he takes forever to respond to emails.

Prof. Andrew is amazing! He clearly knows his stuff and he teaches pretty well! Exams are tough, but HW is fair! I really had lots of fun! Learned a lot from him as well!

Publications

  • Psychological Language on Twitter Predicts County-Level Heart Disease Mortality

    Psychological Science

    We show that Twitter can predict heart disease as well as comprehensive epidemiological models that combine leading socioeconomic and health risk indicators. We found negative emotions and hostility to be associated with higher risk at the county level, while positive emotion and optimism showed protective correlations.
