How Did I Let This Happen?

I have at least five hours of meetings scheduled for every single day this week.

Why is it that when something is labeled a "retreat," I think retreating would probably be a good idea?

Since I posted about our class availability issue, I've learned a whole lot about how our admissions folks handle things to meet the target number they're given in the fall (for the next fall's admissions, for both first year and transfer students). The accuracy with which they can hit their targets is astounding.

And, I've learned who is really responsible for making sure there are enough seats available for students through the university.

I still haven't learned what, if anything, can be done to make the seat planning process more effective, though.


  1. I always feel like the activity labled "retreat" is actually a suggestion. :)

  2. How do they? Or is that a trade secret?
