@ Beth, I was always grateful for that policy also as I was always able to get the classes I needed. It is a real hardship for a student if they need to spend an extra year in school because they can take some courses now, but can't get into others.  I've witnesses some students even changing their majors just so they can get it over with.

I truly hope that big-data can help fix both higher and lower education. Right now there is so much obscurity and debate on what works and what doesn't and where the responsibility lays.

My daughter who is a freshman in college has told me how lucky she feels to be part of an honors program that gives her first crack at class registration. She's heard too many horror stories from friends who had to scramble and revise their class schedules because they couldn't get what they wanted/needed. This is at University of Illinois, so a big school. I don't know what else it does, beyond early access for some students, to address the course demand challenge. I'm surely curious, though!

It Pays to Keep Insurance Fraud in Check
While 97% of insurers say that insurance fraud has increased or remained the same in the past two years, most of those companies report benefits from anti-fraud technology in limiting the impact of fraud, including higher quality referrals, the ability to uncover organized fraud, and improve efficiency for investigators.
