I don't think they take observers. My friend is a resident there & he hasn't seen anyone observing there! I will be asking him next month to see if I can observe there. Will let you know what he finds out if you want!

So from what i found out, they have a very strict policy about observers. My friend tried his best to get me in but it isn't possible unless a faculty member calls you over. And that's what i've seen in most of the places here.
