Comment:
Paul Anglin was one of the best profs I've had at uog, he is always available during office hours to discuss the course. He truly cares for his students and hopes they do good. He is a fair grader, and emphasizes that you explain yourself thoroughly as to what your reasoning is behind the answer. Marks are awarded based on your reasoning.

Comment:
lectures have no relation to examinations, has a 70 page paper on explaining yourself better as a resource, the fact that he doesn't see the irony in that I think says all you need to know. You would need to read his mind to do well, very poor experience. belittles students and shrugs off questions.

I do agree Anglin is a tough prof but he is by no means horrible. If you're looking for an easy elective do not take this course, but if you're willing to go to class and want to be challenged to think outside the box he is a great prof and an extremely intelligent person. Also go to office hours, these discussions are where you will learn most

Comment:
Just terrible. He basically speaks in some cryptic language. Everything he says is so vague that you'll have no idea what he's even referring to. Assignment expectations are very unclear and I think he expects you to just read his mind. He's also arrogant and seems to think he's the smartest, coolest guy on the planet.

Comment:
Would not recommend this professor. Lecture content is very vague and hardly prepares you for the assessments ahead. Does not follow the textbook. Prepared well in advanced for assessments (with graphs and notes provided) and still unable to establish a link between course content and assessment questions. Questions posed are extremely ambiguous.

Comment:
I have taken Paul Anglin twice over my undergrad and he has been one of the worst professors I have experienced. He is incredibly vague across all lectures and provides very little useful information. In assignments and midterms he expects students to read his mind in order to provide the correct answer. If you have an option don't take him.

Comment:
Probably the worst prof I've had in University so far. His lectures are extremely boring and he rambles on about things that don't matter, and then when something matters he flies through it. He is extremely arrogant and acts like he is above everyone, including guest speakers. If you don't have to take him DON'T

Comment:
Looking for clear feedback and a structured grading scheme? It's not here. Can be helpful outside of class but tends to veer off topic and leave some things open ended during lecture. Looks for key phrases and references back to class when grading assignments; that's about the only clear marking criteria. Nice enough outside of class.

Comment:
I've had him for 3 courses. I absolutely do not agree with all of the negative comments that are posted of him. I found him very fair. He's the type of prof that would still give you a lot of marks even if the general answer is wrong but it is fully explained using points from his lectures. Don't buy the text book and go to class and you'll do well

Comment:
Although his course names are called urban economics, property management, or market analysis, the real course he teaches is: the art of confusion. In that respect, Paul Anglin is a master, the Yoda of making simple concepts incredibly confusing. Good luck. Also, don't buy the textbook he will never use it in any of his courses.

Comment:
Confusing instructions, evasive answers, talks down to students, the list goes on... He will test you on things he has never taught, with the rational that you should already know it from previous classes. So... dig deep, what did you learn 2-3 semester ago? Don't recall? tough luck, he is not going to go over it. Also, the textbook is useless.

Comment:
It is an embarrassment that he is part of the Housing and Real Estate program. Get ready for some hypocrisy, as he will demand pin point clarity and detailed explanation, while pointing you in ten different directions with no guidance. Every. Single. Lecture has been completely useless, filled with vague repetitive opinions that do not help.

Comment:
This professor is absolutely ridiculous. He constantly reminds you to "explain yourself better" in group projects, and grades them as such. However, he himself does not display this behaviour of clarity. He is extremely vague and demeans you as being a student, thinking you're thoughts are insignificant and "silly". Do not recommend this teacher.

Comment:
I honestly do not think he is all there mentally, he rambles like no tomorrow. In an hour and 20 minute class realize he could have said all of that in 10 minutes. His marking is VERY ANAL. The course is 75% case studies and 25% final, so his useless classes are not even worth going to, because they do not help with the assignments.

Comment:
I honestly dont think he is all there mentally. He thinks all his students are stupid, but the guest speakers are good, and they have no problem laughing at the profs stupid comments. In class he asked a guest speaker how he could teach common sense to students who dont posses at much as he does. The guest speaker laughed in his face.

Comment:
Mr. Paul's teaching style is unique. He has been more than glad to help you to build up a strategic and tactical thinking framework . I believe that giving minds a compass so that knowledge doesn't go to waste is much more important than filling a bucket with data and formulas. Have the utmost respect for his time and him.

Comment:
The only thing this guy has put any effort into is his 70 page document outlining what 'type' of answers he'll accept. Unorganized, seemingly confused about how to explain concepts beyond telling you 'how it is' and moving on. You can tell he has no idea what he's talking about when he goes quiet and changes to the next topic. Unprepared. Don't

Fairly clear. Looked enough like John Waters that I could never stay mad at him. Willing to be very helpful at times. Group work. I found the final exam expectations oddly confusing, but that may have just been me. Has maybe more interest in real estate than I could ever fake.

Comment:
This prof is by far the worst prof in Ontario. His classes are pointless which coincides with his useless analogies. The guys handwriting and diagrams are messier than my 4 year old cousins. AVOID AT ALL COSTS. If you ever do take his class, ask him a question about the Maple Leafs and their star player "PK Svetson"
