Note to Self: Test Registration

Picture it: It’s the first day of second year registration, less than two hours in.  I sit eagerly at my computer, waiting for the clock to strike 10:45 so that A+ average will pay off and I can get into all the classes I want and enjoy a nice, convenient schedule.

Now picture this: I press the ‘Register All’ button, expecting all my worries to be over, when no fewer than three of my courses show red print telling me I cannot register.  “What. What?! NOOOOOOOOOOO! How is this possible! MUSC 119 all the remaining seats are reserved for first years, and MUSC 220 and 221 don’t recognize my intensive theory as pre-requisites?? Why must I pay for being smart? AGGGGGGGGGH!” is pretty much what went through my head.

What happened next was I sent out a flurry of emails, to the instructors of my courses and to the music advisor.  By the end of the day, I had worked everything out and I got into the courses I needed, but I didn’t get into the tutorial in the time slot I wanted because of the delay. So much for getting into all my first choices with my early registration time.

If I had been smart, I would have pressed the ‘Test Registration’ button long before my actual registration date. But no, I had to be lazy and leave it til the last minute and then freak out for nothing and not get the class I wanted. Lesson learned.
