Statisticians: Here are all the sexy details about the rigorous lottery. Pity the first-year […]
Bwog’s received a copy of the list of courses that will count toward the Global Core requirement. The class list still isn’t on the Core website, but thanks to one anxious senior/Bwog staffer, we’re able to reproduce it after the jump for you.

After picking up on the vaguely changed Major Cultures requirement last week, we inquired with the good folks at the Committee on the Core to figure out what exactly we have to do to get this one out of the way.
