    I am a freshman trapped in a junior body

    It is scheduling time for school. I am stuck taking 12 credit hours next semester because the classes I need are not offered.

    I have my second sequence of bio and my first sequence of chem. Chem is a 5 credit hour class. Both bio and chem are only offered at one time slot for the semester. Funny thing, the other classes I need are either not offered or conflict with my science classes, lab and recitation. I can't even take my math class because it conflicts with my bio. I have to take these science classes NOW. They are pre-requisites for my upper division classes. The one bio prof I have won't let me in molecular genetics yet. I pleaded my case and he turned me down since all I have is the first sequence of bio.

    I do get to take Healthy Lifestyles..web based. That will bring me to 12 credit hours next semester. There is not another damned class I can take that does not conflict with my science classes.

    I knew there was a reason that I hated college.

    Just take it one step at a time. You'll get your degree one way or another. You've made it to this point, what's one more hurdle?

    That said :banghead:

    NO..I am not going to take 4 years to get my degree when I have all the crap classes done.

    In all honesty, I should graduate in 2 years..I only have core classes to take.

    The gods are not smiling on me.

    Is there any chance the Dean can pull some strings?

    This morning I got an email telling me that I'll apparently be able to register for classes earlier than 99% of people... Thanks to the Services for Student Disabilities.:prop:

    Does your school offer night classes? Is that even feasible?

    What about winter semester? Can you take one of your classes then? I doubt that they can compress your chem down, but maybe you can take your math class then.

    Most schools offer the basic courses over Winter/Summer. My summer chem class was going to be 6 hours a day, 5 days a week for 6 weeks. Ugh.

    Maybe Zod can do some pulling for the Dean and it'll sort itself out?

    What the ****? Did you quit the forensics thing to become a youth counselor or something?

    Dross, I complained about taking that yesterday. I guess the reasoning I gave worked because now I don't have to take it.

    I am going to be stuck taking 2 night classes. As my schedule is now, I have no days off at all.

    Nessy, we don't have winter classes. We have fall, spring and summer. Winter break is only a month and the uni shuts down pretty much during that time.

    Well, you know what they say. You may have won the special olympics, but you're still special.

    college/university = those with better knowledge retention + studying habits win, not "intelligence"

    I agree. Well, except for the high proportion of attractive young women.

    If you think college sucks the first time, try going back 10 years after you graduate, for a 2nd degree.

    That would definitely be unpleasant.
