Section Information

The following table lists the GSIs for this course, as well as the sections they teach, the locations of those sections, and the GSI’s e-mail addresses.  You are not enrolled in the course unless you are enrolled in a section.  ANYONE missing either of the first two meetings of their section WILL be DROPPED from the course to make room for students on the waitlist.  Priority for getting into the class from the waitlist will be given to graduating senior majors in political science, graduating seniors in majors that require PS 3, and then junior majors.  Within these groups, the order will proceed in the order of the waitlist.  

IF YOU ARE TRYING TO ADD THIS COURSE:  Attend any and all sections that you can for at least the first week.  If you are still balancing other parts of your schedule, you should, at a minimum, email the GSIs for the sections that you could possibly make.
