has done a great job in getting the points across. To me, this course

somewhat hard, however, he is one of the better professors I have

microeconomics as interesting as it could possibly be. I learned
a lot and have had no trouble with getting through the class." "He
was always prepared for class, easily accessible outside of class,
but he needs to improve on his sense of humor. (Although he
tries extremely hard.)" "I think Mulligan was a very good professor.
Especially when it came to exam time. Every exam, he made sure we
had a study session. This showed his dedication and hard work
as a professor." "His testing methods were commendable and
I believe it gave the students an incentive to keep fresh in mind what
we learned earlier." "I feel that I have not only learned a lot,
