Registering for fall courses

Wow, the comments I've been getting have been so supportive and helpful. The internet is supposed to be filled with rude individuals and yet, here you guys are, defying the norm. (With the exception of a few spambots). Thank you to everyone who has commented, I don't mind if they're long I still read them, don't worry. Good luck to the fellow job hunters, we need it.

<3 you guys.

But, I have to face to possibility of not being able to find a job. Which means I'll be heading back to classes in the fall and I should probably finish registering for my courses as soon as possible.

Part of the problem is that I'm running out of courses to take. Or rather, courses that still interest me and are still open. I'm mostly interested in Psychology so I'm taking a course in Research, Abnormal and maybe Developmental or Cultural Psychology. I'm also taking a Computing Science class with a friend and I'm considering retaking that Organic Chemistry course I dropped. Still got one spot open and I'm considering filling it with a course in Economics.

Look at me! Trying to be all smart and educated and stuff.

And now the problems that have arisen.

First, I can't seem to register for any of the Developmental Psychology courses. I'm not sure if it's because I've reached the limit of how many I can take or maybe my limit on Psychology courses because I don't think any Developmental Psych classes are "restricted" or "special" courses. Especially when my other Science major friends have been able to take it. It also wouldn't explain why I was able to sign up for Abnormal Psychology. The Cultural psych and Economics course is also full so I'll be watching them like a hawk for an opening.

There is an opening for the Organic Chemistry course BUT it's with the shitty prof. Obviously the good prof is taken by this point. Honestly though, I'm not too excited at the prospect of retaking that class, there was a reason why I dropped it. (I'm really stupid at chemistry).

Hurr durr atoms and molecules.

I could take other things I guess? Except I've taken a lot of sciences already, not too keen on taking more Sociology or Philosophy. My friend was also complaining about the Math and Physics department screwing up his schedule, not allowing him to sign up for open classes either. Maybe the Psychology department is having similar problems?

I'll take a look at it later. I've already paid the fee that confirms that I'll be attending the University in the fall. But if I manage to get either of those jobs I'll cancel all my courses and go work for a year.

And I would be more than happy with that. I won't have any of these stupid scheduling problems and issues.

  1. Damn man. I agree Fall is going to be tough. I'm taking the last part of inorganic chemistry (again) and really not looking forward to it. We actually don't have any good chem profs at my college so im just screwed. But hey, I'll figure it out eventually. I'm sure we both can if we put the time into it.

  2. Why not fill it up with something that you're not sure of at all, then? I mean if there's nothing left, might as well check to see if something else fits with you, no?

  3. Hm. My best advice would be to make sure there's at least one non-weekend day in which you have very little to do, a good relaxing refreshing day. ++Follow

  4. University scheduling is on the most annoying things imaginable. They never seem to be able to get it quite right. Still good luck with getting the choices sorted out.

  5. Best of luck to you. I'd want my fee back if I got that job, but that's just me.

  6. dawww :3! Scheduling at school is the most frustrating part of my life.. Till classes start. I feel your pain with getting your top choices, but remember, the closer you get to graduating, the better your chances of getting what you want!

  11. Organic chem killed my GPA, hated that class. Fortunately the teacher was hot so I was able to pay enough attention to pass the class.

  16. I hope you get everything sorted soon, I know how managing all of the school stuff can be. It's tough at the best of times! And there are nice people on the internet, you just have to ignore and filter out the idiots. Good luck with the job hunting and keep at it, you may be surprised! And art festivals always sound interesting, I need to go to one too. xxx

  18. I've heard that you can always register for a course (such as your organic chem.) but go to the lecture of another prof instead.

  19. I had trouble finding a course too. I'm starting one in September, Creative Computer Games Design. I've done a little dames design before so i'm hoping it'll be good. Good luck man!

  22. Wow, you are bringing back so many memories!! These are stressful times, I know. I graduated with my bachelor's degree in 1997 and my Master's in 2000. It's been a while! My husband dropped Organic Chemistry in college and regretted not trying to get through it. I would try to take it, if I were you! Too bad about the shitty professor, though...

  23. I still don't know what course I should do. Good luck in your quest for knowledge. :P

  25. Registering for classes is a NIGHTMARE here. I guess we all gotta deal with it though, survival of the fittest just to go to school.
