  • Submit your choices by the due date to Capstone Project Stage 1 (City Selection).
  • So that we have a range of cities represented by the class, you will be assigned your first choice if you are the first or second person to propose it. If two people propose it before you, you will get your second or third choice. The goal is for no city to be represented by more than three people. If we have too many people choosing one city, I may have to ask some people to choose again.
  • I will post the list of cities against everyone’s name in the assignment comment box by the end of Module 3.
