We have taken the time to balance the various departments to ensure that the same amount of effort is required to get a degree from each. As you might have noticed, some of the departments (Medicine, for example) had easier, more straight-shot paths toward getting a degree, whereas other departments like Shamanism or Hexing were difficult due to all of the prerequisites.
This has now been fixed. The degree requirements for each class are roughly the same now: if you're a full time student taking three classes a quarter, you can graduate in four years regardless of which department you choose.
For those Intermediate
students that the new changes affect (especially in terms of which classes you would have picked in the past to get toward your degree), contact viralremix
so we can work out a way to get you back on track and switch over some of your passed classes to other ones.
If you'd like to change the classes your character is taking for January due to the new system, please comment here with your changes.
And, without further ado, here are the suggested schedules we figured out so that new students can have a four year plan with ease:
