Hoping for some reassurance about later Orientation

<p>Hi everyone,</p>

<p>I'm going to the end of July orientation (there is one after in August for oversees students), and I know I read in the welcome pamphlet that they reserve a given amount of spaces for classes in high demand so that all orientation sessions can register for these classes. However, for current students or those in the know, has a problem ever come up where a student (I'm engineering) can't get a class that they want to take (like physics, chemistry, etc.) because they attended a later session? Certainly a later orientation doesn't attempt to put students at a disadvantage because everyone's schedule is different, but I'm wondering if these types of things do happen. As the title says, I'm hoping for some reassurance that even though I'm attending the last orientation session that I can, I can still have an equal opportunity to register for the same classes as someone in the first orientation with no worry of being denied due to space limitations. I'm sure others may have this question in the back of their minds, so please, if anyone has any thoughts or experience, please let me know.</p>

<p>Thanks!</p>

<p>If you search you will see, orientation date does not mean anything with respect to getting classes. It is more related to the --time of day-- you register at your specific orientation, there are a total number of spots open for each orientation so if you are later in the day on your specific orientation that would be a disadvantage but each orientation has the same number of spots so there is no difference. So next time see if the sticky thread or searching will help you find the answer to your question!</p>

<p>Thank you hazelorb! A quick search before posting would have gotten me a long way. Originally I was just concerned because I signed up for the "last" session, but it appears that each session has the same number of allocated spots to be taken. :) Take care.</p>
