Are you willing and ready to regularly dedicate this amount of time to the course? 

Yes, I plan to reserve at least six to nine hours a week for the reading and homework required in this course.
No, I don't have six free hours a week to dedicate to this class. I realize that I will probably fail the course.
Not sure (depends on work, sports, family, level of interest or other factors).

10. How would you describe your attitude as a student? (Check one. Please be very honest.) 

I didn't even want to be at UTEP but I'm attending because I have to. If I had the freedom I'd much rather be doing something else.

I'd rather not take this class, but since every first-year student has to take it I agree to do the bare minimum necessary to get a C-.
I'm not interested in the theme of this class but I am willing to do what's necessary to get an "A" and to succeed in the course.

I am interested in the theme of this course and want to get the best grade I can and learn everything I can in the class.
