I keep seeing references to this. Certainly negotiations often talk about class size. But, in my experience over 30 years I have had MANY great large classes at the end of the day and miserable small classes early in the day. I think these aspects, while perhaps loosely correlating with success, are over-rated. Give me a large class with great chemistry (ie: an enjoyable mix of students) anytime.
OK -- comments? Fire away! Mel
