Easy Courses for 1st and 2nd year Ivey @ Western?

I'm considering going to Ivey, and thus BMOS for the first 2 years.

Any easy "bird" courses for 1st/2nd year?

1st year:
classics 1000 - intro
psych 1000 - intro (lots of reading)
math 1225 - easier than calc 1000 (so I've heard... everyone i know who took this over 1301 had high 90's)

2nd year:
classics 2200 - mythology (lots of reading/sparknotes)
classics 2300 - sports in antiquity (fair)
psych 2042 - abnormal child psych (75-80% average)
psych 2075 - human sexuality (heard this year is rougher though)
geo 2144 - tourism (heard 80s is a joke, but 90 is almost impossible - depends on your goal)

-- honestly any of those should be very do-able especially since if you want to go to IVEY ... you only need like an 80 to get in (especially if your AEO)

If you're AEO, you just need to maintain a 80 average + maintain some ECs for first two years. If you're competing for advanced entry, you need mid 80s + tons of ECs to be considered.

another tip would be to look on premed101 for "bird courses"
-- when you choose an elective, make sure you scan the syllabus to make sure the topics at least somewhat appeal to you (it will make things much easier to study)
