Yet another testament to the reality that time in college is fleeting and diminishing at astonishing speeds, registration for next semester’s class (that is, fall 2011), began last week. As a freshman, my turn to register didn’t come until 11AM on Monday morning. It’s usually those pesky—and fun!—art classes, like photography, that close really quickly, but I got into most of the classes I had hoped to.
As a word of advice, however, it isn’t wise to put off taking the math placement test as long as I have. Since I haven’t taken any math classes all year, there hasn’t been a particular need to receive math placement so far. And since math isn’t my strongest suit, it just seemed like something to endlessly procrastinate on. Until, however, the morning of my class registration, when I realized that I wasn’t able to register for certain economics and statistics classes, having not taken the placement exam necessary. Oops! I finally took it last night, since the circumstances demaned—it wasn’t that horrible! But obviously, this is not an example to follow. Beware, future students! If I’m lucky, the math-related classes I had hoped to take won’t be full by the time my exam results come in, and I’ll still be able to register for them.
If not, mea culpa.
