            An ability to spend time with my professors who were very accessible. So different than the typical large law school class where the profs are hard to ever talk to at all.

            This was one of the best course on finance I have ever took. Prof. Shiller knows what he is talking about and his guests were very interesting as well! I highly recommend this course to anyone who is really trying to understand the ''whole picture'' about what happen around 2006/2007 and why all that happened and how we can learn from this major collapse/ crises....
