I'm still registered for ECO 304L: Intro Macro (#33670), meeting in UTC 2.102A MWF 1-2, but the professor has changed. Apparently Dr. Gervais couldn't stand the heat so he got out of the kitchen. Er, Texas.
The class will now be taught by Michael Sadler, who, according to the Course-Instructor Survey (CIS), is the bee's knees. But more importantly, it looks like he's exclusively taught ECO 322: Money and Banking for the last several years, which could make his Macro class especially relevant to the current economic crisis. (See my last post for The Economist's take on how economics and finance should interrelate.)
I'm also on the waitlist for ECO 330T: Health Economics (#33830), which could be very interesting given the current debate about health care. The session meets in UTC 3.132 MWF 11-12 and is taught by Helen Schneider who also got high CIS marks from previous students.
As of today, I'm number six out of nine on the list. I have no idea what that says about my chances of adding the class, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
