Despite the Biology Department's decision Wednesday to accept four upper-level courses to fulfill lower-level requirements, students still can't find enough courses to take.
Lee M. Wilgus '71 and others are circulating a questionnaire among Biology concentrators in order to determine how many students are having trouble finding and getting into courses they want. The questionnaire specifically asks about Bio 10b and Bio 166, two popular courses.
"A lot of the courses being offered are not interesting," Wilgus said yesterday, "and the interesting ones are oversubscribed." Bio 10b, he said, had 300 applicants for 50 places, of which 42 were filled by seniors.
"The idea of the questionnaire is to help the Biology Department decide what to do," Wilgus said, "not to start a revolt."
The students will present the tabulated results to Robert P. Levine, professor of Biology, on Monday. Wilgus has also written a letter to Levine and Dean Ford explaining the students' complaints.
