Quote from: mythbuster on June 14, 2023, 07:54:22 AMOur lower level courses always see a huge wave of last minute enrollment. Unfortunately, we can predict with better than fair accuracy how the students will perform in the class based on how late they enroll.
Quote from: Puget on June 15, 2023, 09:33:22 AMFaculty are left fielding pleas from students to let them into already full courses. In my department we have agreed not to do this-- let the students go complain to the administration about it, and our answer will be that they need to give us new hires to meet the demand if they want that problem solved.
