I always use the same word to describe McGill's undergrads: phenomenal. And they proved it again just a few minutes ago. I was teaching Classical Realism to my class of 600 students, mostly new to McGill and new to political science. And towards the end, a bunch of them started asking really smart questions that showed that they had done the reading, had thought about it, and had developed some good critiques and questions about the stuff thus far.
I may have to revise my lectures since they seem to be way ahead of me.
A good problem to have, I think.
