We are unable to offer a wait list for Stat 305. Students should monitor enrollment and watch for a seat to open up. There is generally movement in enrollment up to the beginning of the course, and we find that most students are able to get a seat if they are dilligent about monitoring enrollment and watching for seats to open up.

Note: please do not register in this course unless you can also find an open seat in a lab section that does not conflict with your schedule. We are not able to overload our labs for any reason, so if you are unable to find a seat in a lab section that does not conflict with yoru schedule, please do not register for the class.
