When I went to SFSU I never knew what I was doing when it came to registering for classes. Which is probably the reason I took a whole year of pointless classes that only count as electives, or even worse didn't even transfer to LMU. I never had a counselor and if I did no one ever told me about it. I didn't even know we were supposed to consult a counselor before signing up for classes. So when I got to LMU I decided I wasn't going to let this happen again and the school had my back on that.
For my first semester the English department had me speak with the Dean about which classes to take. She was really helpful and gave me a print out of all the requirements I needed to fulfill. For my second semester however I was supposed to speak with my counselor....who never returned a phone call or an email so once again I spoke with the Dean. I am the type of student however that already knows every class I want and need to take and has my whole schedule ready before I talk to my counselor. I still like to talk with a counselor though to make sure I'm on the right track. So the Dean just kind of stared at me and said "Yep that's right" which happened again with my counselor for this semester (the first time I had ever met with him)
As for the actual registering for classes I have never really had a big problem getting the classes I want. In fact I always make the perfect schedule and then get bored during the summer and find an even better schedule. Things always work out for me and I think it's sad how stressed out people get about not getting the classes they want or need. So I'll just keep my finger crossed for next semester and hope everything doesn't fail for my final semester in college!
