Might be too late in posting but you should know that Dr. Randles is now retired. Which is a pretty big deal since he was the undergraduate adviser for statistics and actuarial science in addition to teaching a large number of courses (he was the only teacher for the classes covering FM and MLC and occasionally taught P as well). The class covering MLC was actually offered for the first time this spring, taught by Randles. With his retirement, there's no guarantee that the class will be offered in the future. Randles was a damn good teacher and a great adviser/mentor/resource for students so his absence will be missed. I still have one year to go and have no idea what the stats department will look like going forward without Randles.
