I hate how if you have less credits you have to wait longer to register. Ugh.
I camt register till the 25th but registration for other people starts the 9th. This is f**king bull shit!

my schools not like that, were able to register for the next term maybe a week before new students...otherwise everyone registers at the same time. that would be pretty shitty to be in your situation. :(

Sucks, but it actually is fair. If you have more credits that means the classes you need are more limited and so you should get first choice for the classes you need over someone who still has TONS of classes left to take. If I only had 3 classes left to take til I graduated and a bunch of freshmen filled it up, I'd be pissed.

Ours does it all current students get to register like a week before new students no matter how many credits you have.

This is true. I'd much rather take transferable 'throw away' classes my first semester than fill up a class someone needs to graduate.

This....very true. Im a sophmore now, and I did about 12hours over the summer (summer classes are cheaper).I mean its just how school works.

It is kind of fair. A seniors need for a certain class are higher than a freshmans. Our college does Senior, junior, sophomore, then freshmen. And if seniors don't get into a class they need they are allowed to request the class to their adviser and get into it if they are within one semester of graduating. It's actually a relief once you get into higher level classes and closer to graduating.

Yep. You'll get there eventually, OP! And you'll be grateful!

Same thing at my college. Except it doesn't matter whether or not the class I really need is filled up, TONS of kids end up dropping out of the class the first two weeks. So I usually get in regardless. Sure you will too. ;]
