Pre-Course Survey

LS 50: Integrated Science has room for approximately 35 students (freshmen only, no exceptions). We encourage you to complete our survey form by 11:59 PM EST on Friday, August 30th. You don't have to do this to take the course, but if you do and you want to talk to us about the course, it means we already have some information about you to help guide the conversation.

For the first couple of years, we held a lottery and then had a wait list for those who didn't lottery into the class. In those years, we were able to give everyone on the wait list a chance to take LS50, since then we have beein doing things differently. Until registration, we hold the class in a larger room, and everyone who is interested is welcome to come, but we ask you to email us ( either to tell us that you want to take the class, or to tell us, if you later change your mind, that you don't.

If, two days shy of registration, we have more than 35 students who want to take LS50, we'll hold a lottery to select 35 students and notify you by email. Given that enrollment for our first two years was between 20 and 25, the third year was 33, and our fourth year was back to 25, it is likely that we will have room for everyone who wants to take LS50. Classes begin on Tuesday, September 3rd.

If you would like to learn more about the course (beyond what you can find here and on the official course website ( before the fall semester begins, contact us at if you have any questions.
