Am FURIOUS about being waitlisted for Con Law III. I already read the first assignment, dammit.
Furious? This happens every quarter to some class, where it is over-subscribed and something else is already in the bigger classrooms. Just show up the first day. Chances are enough people drop it so that you can get in.
Nothing else is in the auditorium, they just don't want to move it. I'm 35 on the waitlist so I have no prayer of getting in. It dovetails nicely with another class I'm taking this quarter (the equal protection bit applies to both), and I can't take it with Stone in the spring because it conflicts with a clinic prereq. If this happens every quarter, why don't they cap the classes? First come, first serve instead of a last-minute lottery. At least then we would know what books to buy.
Yeah, I'm annoyed. Stupid system. And we should take con law as 1Ls, which would certainly tamp down the demand for subject matter-specific classes. I really don't see why we don't. Even E. Posner doesn't think 1Ls should be taking international law, and he taught the damn elective.
