Q: I am on the waitlist. What can I do to get in?
A: In a course this big, we cannot consider requests for individual treatment. So we will let the campus waitlist policy play out. Interested students on the waitlist are invited to attend the first few lectures, sign up for course accounts, begin homeworks, and wait to see if they can get in.
Q: Will lectures be webcasted?
A: Yes, webcasts will be available on CalCentral. However, experts say that students who attend CS186 lectures in person develop enhanced crepuscular cognition skills, and benefit from powerful network effects.
