Freshman Seminar Switcheroo

<p>My DD's freshman seminar was changed due to unavailability of resources. Her seminar course GERMAN 150 was on the Berlin wall and is now "Horror Films of the Weimar Republic". This class will show German horror films, as well as The Orphanage and select Hitchcock movies. DD would like to exchange her spot in this class with someone who has the freshman seminar The Art of Detection (taught by Martha Alexander). </p>

<p>If anyone is interested in switching into this course, please contact me.</p>

<p>wait until add/drop or email the professor, or even show up for the first class and talk to the professor. add/drop lasts 2 weeks and unless its a really popular class, she should be able to get in.</p>

<p>hey, i'm in that seminar too... or rather i was. i'm probably going to switch because horror films just aren't my cup of tea. :-&lt;/p>

<p>it would be worth asking the professor of the seminar you (/your kid) want if it will be offered 2nd semester.</p>

<p>that could give you more scheduling options</p>

<p>Update: D has now successfully traded that spot for a spot in the Sociology of Greed and Altriusm freshman seminar. Any offers for that spot?</p>

<p>I'm confused - are students allowed to trade classes? What happens to kids who may have already emailed the professor to get into a course and been told to come to the first class and see how enrollment pans out? </p>

<p>Just wondering how it works - I hadn't heard of private trading before.</p>

<p>I think you just unregister and reregister for a class at the same time. The chances of someone else getting the course in the few seconds is soooo slim.</p>

<p>yea, what Here to Help said...</p>

<p>some people will even intentionally hold classes for their friends, if they only need to use their registration for 4 classes, they can sign up for other classes with their leftovers, and then coordinate when they drop the class with their friend, so their friend can get it.</p>

<p>In this case, a facebook contact offered to switch. They picked a time, and one dropped and the other added the class right afterwards. Someone trolling for openings at the same time could have picked it up.</p>
