If you are interested in this course but have not registered because it is closed, add yourself to the waitlist. If the waitlist fills (10), the course size can be increased for those on the list.
Also, if you do not have the ECON 374 prereq, Professor Lamdin can override this for students who have completed ECON 312 with "B or better" if the course size is increased.
