DO NOT TAKE A CLASS FROM RACHEL SHERMAN. I can't believe she is teaching at Columbia again. She was incredibly impatient when explaining her thoughts and would snap at students if they asked her a question about what she meant. She gives terrible, rushed critiques. One of my friends received a critique on her final submission that was no more than three sentences. She clearly picks favorites. She also makes enemies out of some students and is then super passive aggressive with them. She canceled classes multiple times with very short notice and rescheduled them for reading week, but was also somehow super serious about attendance. She is kind of racist too. Seriously.
