Writing Credit

As many of you probably know, the College of Arts and Sciences requires that in order to graduate, students must complete "10 credits of writing intensive courses," also known as a "W" Course. Other colleges have writing requirements as well. A full explanation of the "W" courses can be found by clicking here.

My question to all of you is, how significant of a factor is writing credit in your course enrollment decisions? Are you more or less likely to enroll in a course if it has a W next to it, or does it depend on whether or not you need that credit? Are there certain departments where you're more likely to take a course if you need writing credit? Conversely, are there departments from whose courses you'd not be interested in seeking writing credit?
