POLI 232 announcement
This is an almost-useless place to post this message, but faculty don't have access to the wait list, so I can't do any of the things that would actually make sense like send it to the appropriate students.
As the waitlist is currently configured, when someone drops the course, the top person on the waitlist gets an e-mail inviting him or her to register-- and a window of time in which to do it. If you receive such an e-mail but no longer plan to register for the course, please indicate that as directed. Just ignoring it and taking no action means that the next person on the waitlist can't be invited for the duration of your timer.
Of course, by the same token, if you're enrolled but planning to drop, please drop sooner rather than later out of courtesy to those waiting.
