I finally got my schedual yesterday. And I was not happy!
We registered for the classes we wanted in July and then a computer generates a schedual based on what everyone registers for and all that.
Well I was denied entry into one of my classes because they only have 60 spots in it, which is so stupid because like 100 people wanted to be in it, and they only offer it every other year, so now I have to wait untill my last year to take it! But they have to let me in then.
And 2 of my classes were schedualed at the same time, so I had to drop one.
So I had to not only pick 2 new classes, but also fit them into my schedual, next to impossible!! so with lots of searching and jugling I found a class that I wanted that fit, but the absolutly only other class that I could take and would fit in was an English, which I really didn't want to have to take!! I hate english!
It took me 2 hole days, but i finally got everything worked out, mind you I sent a couple angry messages to the registrars office, undoubtedly not their only ones lol.
Anyway just needed to vent, thanks for listening!
I'm in night classes also and there are only 5 people in my program at night. The daytime program is full with over 25 people. In Nov. I am quitting my job and then will have to switch to day classes. I am dreading it already cause I know it is going to be a pain to switch!!

That is one thing I like about night classes, not nearly the struggle to get into them!
Not where I go. I have the hardest time getting into night classes. They're always full
I used to take night classes as often as I could, so I could work in the day (I worked in the nursury at a wonderful learning center) but I am not going back to that job this fall, so I'll be taking day classes. My night classes were always huge lecture-style classes, because my major is cognitive psych which is one of the biggest night programs we have on campus. Our lecture halls are pretty huge though, so there wasn't ever competition to get in. Until the summer semester, when I got pregnant, I always felt out of place because everyone taking those classes were much older than me, and had school-aged children... but my day classes I also felt out of place because I was much older than everyone else (I put off college for a few years) and they were all talkign about the stupidest things.... I'm afraid now that I'm going to lose it on one of these poor "sorority" type girls who only cares about going to frat parties... so I guess I don't really belong anywhere LOL
Our scheduling is pretty easy- you do it online during your assigned registration time (assigned by class rank) and if the class is full, it's full and you can't register.. there are ways around it though, like talking to the prof or the dean, and they'll let you in... I can't imagine having scheduling difficulties like that, geeshe! Someone ought to write them a nasty letter... oh yeah, you did, LOL, well kudos, and I hope your semester is a good one no matter what classes you ended in!
Yes, most of my classes are in the hundreds too. Our psych lecture hall holds 200 people, and it's usually full. The largest class I ever took was Sociology my freshmen year (everyone on campus needs this course to fill some sort of requirement) It was in the auditorium that holds 500 people, and it was difficult to find a seat unless I showed up twenty minutes before class began! I hated being in a class so big! I've had some smaller classes, but not many, and none of them were in my major-mostly lit and philosophy classes (I am taking a minor in philosophy-not too many people in those classes at all!).
1shortmama, just out of curiosity, what program are you in that graces you with such small classes? I really am envious!
