FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

  1. When will I get in Chem 100?
    A: It all depends who drops each section. An AVERAGE of 2 people drop per section, some sections no one drops, some sections 6 people drop. It is better to be #1 on an 8 am lab waitlist than #10 on a 2 pm lab waitlist. As soon as someone drops, the next person can be added. If you are #1 on the waitlist and you see a spot open and it has been more than 12 hours, email and I will add you.
  2. But as long as I am on the waitlist I will eventually get in?
    A: Nope. If no one drops from a section, no one can be added. And you will still see your name on a wait list even after the add/drop period ends- that does not mean you still have a shot at getting in, only that the registrar does not zero out names.
  3. I am a graduating senior and I really need this class, can I have priority?
    A: The wait list takes units into account. You get a higher priority with more units. I have no way of changing that. But seriously- if you really need this class and you see a lab spot open at 8 am - TAKE IT! Everyone hates 8 am labs, but it is better than not getting a spot.
