Well, no luck so far in trying to get into either of those two classes I want. I did manage to catch one of the professors right before class, but he said he's sorry there's nothing he can do to get me in, since the class is structured on having exactly 20 students. All I can do is keep checking the registration system for students who drop the class. That's exactly what the other professor said when I e-mailed him during the summer, too.
The classes I have right now will at least satisfy the degree requirements, but it won't be very enjoyable.
