Dropped course, have to take seminar at 11th-hour?


<p>I took an overambitious workload this semester (16 units, but all hard/science) and ended up dropping one a few days back because it was unsustainable.</p>

<p>My attempts to take easier/writing ones (Modern Phil, L&S70B) were rejected by profs as being too late in the term (which I kind of agree with).</p>

<p>So I need to take a seminar to get the required 13 units. The only ones that are still marked OPEN ([Seminars</a> for Freshmen at UC Berkeley](<a href=“http://fss.berkeley.edu/freshman.lasso]Seminars”>http://fss.berkeley.edu/freshman.lasso)) are:</p>

<p>Ethnic Studies 24, Sec. 2: Culture, Gender and Sexuality in Ang Lee’s “Father Knows Best” Trilogy: Pushing Hands, Eat Drink Man Woman, and The Wedding Banquet (1 unit, P/NP) SEATS AVAILABLE</p>

<p>Geography 24, Sec. 1: The City (1 unit, P/NP) SEATS AVAILABLE</p>

<p>History of Art 24, Sec. 1: Classic Movies as Visual Art (1 unit, P/NP) SEATS AVAILABLE</p>

<p>Roughly same story for DeCals.</p>

<p>And as far as I can see all the PE classes are not taking in any more people either.</p>

<p>So the question…</p>

<li><p>I am absolutely not interested in any of them, will probably have already missed huge chunks, and frankly can’t be bothered going to them and eking out a pass. What will a No Pass in a 1-unit seminar do to GPA / academic standing / etc?</p></li>
<li><p>What if I remained at 12 units - would that threaten my status as full time student, and what would be the consequences of that?</p></li>
<li><p>What should I do?</p></li>

<p>Thanks for your help.</p>


<p>same problem. anyone know any 3 or 4 unit classes that are still accepting students/havent begin and are EASY...p/np classes perferred</p>

<p>I just wanted to suggest this 1 unit math seminar I'm taking: UCB</a> Online Schedule of Classes: Search Results </p>

<p>It's Math 24 002: What's New in Math and Science? with Prof Harrison. I am under the impression you can still join so long as you go speak to the professor at 3 pm tomorrow before section begins. It's very fun and easy. Every week you just have to bring in an article about math and science to discuss. Usually, only two or three people get a chance to share their articles. It's a lot of fun since its very interactive (and its a chance to get to know a professor really well).</p>

<p>is there anything else besides Seminars</a> for Freshmen at UC Berkeley that describes the seminars?</p>
