Recently, we've been receiving many inquires about the wait list. The current wait list is over 50 students long. We have 19 seats available in lecture. We consider these seats to be the limiting factor. We are optimistic that normal enrollment attrition, combined with normal wait list attrition will enable us to enroll most, if not all, of waiting students. Patients and optimism are the key, but no promises.
