Berkeley Summer Sessions waitlist

<p>Hey guys,</p>

<p>I am trying to take a class over the summer @ Berkeley (I'm a newly admitted transfer student). Unfortunately, it took me so long to make up my mind on where I want to go to school that by the time I finally submitted my SIR and was able to register for summer classes, everything that I want has been filled, and they are putting me on the waitlists. Now, my questions:</p>

<p>1) If I am number 5 on a waitlist of a class of 140, is it likely that I will get into the class?</p>

<p>2) If I am getting put onto these waitlists, should I just enroll in extra back-up courses, in case I don't get taken off the waitlist, then drop the back-ups if I can?</p>

<p>Any advice would be greatly appreciated.</p>

<p>Oh, and one more thing:</p>

<p>Does anybody have any recommendations for an easier/less-demanding/interesting GenEd class that I could take? I need at least 2 more units to be considered full-time. </p>

<p>And my major is EECS</p>


<p>1) Yeah, you’ll probably get in.</p>

<p>2) No, I wouldn’t do that. Just wait and see how enrollment looks on the first day of class. If for whatever reason your WL classes are just not opening up, then you may want to drop 1 after the first week and try to add on another one ASAP. There will be open classes available, but there’s not guarantee that there will be an open one you need/want to take.</p>

<p>3) There are a lot in the Psych Department: Human Sexuality, Human Happiness, Psych of Sleep, etc :).</p>

<p>Awesome. Thanks for the help.</p>

<p>Hey Wacker1990 - CS61A? I tried enrolling in it too for Transfer EDGE. It still hasn’t been added to my telebears yet… Something went wrong in their system.</p>

<p>Yes, that’s exactly right. 61A. Until this morning, I couldn’t even get access to telebears. Are you on the waitlist? Mine says, “You are not enrolled in any classes for this semester.” I’m guessing that it stays that way until we get off of the waitlist?</p>

<p>And another thing: half the time that I try to log into myFinAid, it doesn’t work. It just sits there, loading and loading… and loading. Do other people have this problem?</p>

<p>Nope, nothign is on my telebears yet… =/. Yeah sometimes that happens to me with myfinaid too. Just refresh the page. It’ll work haha.</p>

<p>I can’t even access TeleBears.</p>
