- Overenrolled -

I checked the registration for my graduate "seminar" Friday: 18 students. I was assigned the course rather late and forgot to check on the enrollment cap. To add to the problems, we had a larger than usual crop of new students, and they had to be signed into the course. In any case, the seminar will work better if I have more like 12 students, so I sent out the syllabus early. It has an extraordinarily heavy workload, which will allow the students to see what they are getting into. I'm hoping that more than a few of them will decide that this is more than they bargained for.
