We hoped to release this semester's second issue earlier, but, well, this chart--an excerpt from last week's statistics report--may help explain why we didn't. (These numbers don't even reflect our Reading Days/Finals schedule--almost another whole week's worth of appointments offered, and the vast majority used.)
