I am definitely choosing Acct1B and Business and the Law, as well as marketing
But out of Finance and macroeconomics I am torn- I am not that mathematical. Both sound hard
But I want to avoid infs at all costs.
Thanks :)

Just curious what made you decide to do Business & Law? I remembered you posting up a thread earlier saying you hated law?

From my understanding you learn about Torts and Contracts in Business & Law. This is essentially what you do in a law degree. You learn other areas of law too of course in a law degree. The LEGT courses later on, yes, are quite different from Law.

If you're choosing one for next semester, macro. If you can wait til 1st sem next year, fins is a no-brainer. A lot of the exam material comes from the practice questions/samples etc. so as long as you practice it's an easy D-HD. Don't do fins next sem if you're not that great at math though, sem 2 is harder.

INFS1602 is alright in terms of content but the assignments are a bitch, espicially the first one.

Yeah, you can basically delay any course until whenever unless you need it as a prereq. I have friends who left it til 3rd-4th year to do mgmt/infs/etc.
