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!

Remember: if you can keep your head about you when all around you are in a
panic ... perhaps you don't totally understand the situation!
