    I am currently trying to register for an A&P II class for Spring 2011, but all the classes are full.:eek: I was wondering if anyone on MR knew of a program or some sort of hack so that I could be notified when there is an available spot. As of right now what I do is I just go and search for the class as often as I can and hope someone has dropped. So basically just something that will let me know when a webpage has changed I guess? Sorry if I am not being clear enough.

    What i have done in the past, not for an AP course but a course on the college level.

    I have obtained an enrollment permission form and taken that to the prof asking personally to be added to the class. Be persistent but not annoying. Don't be timid, especially if it's an important class for your schedule.

    For the college classes I have signed up for I was always able to add myself to the wait list if the class was full.

    After I was on the wait list I would go grab a add form for the class and ask the professor to fill it out if at all possible. Come up a decent reason why you would like to be in the class and he/she may be more willing to let you in.

    Speaking from a college professor perspective. If I receive a politely worded email I will sometimes authorize people into the class even if it is full, assuming that the assigned room has enough seats. However, some of my colleagues will not do this.

    Professor swiftaw, thank you for the professors view on this. I will probably send one of the professors an email shortly.


    thanks for all the help.

    depends on the school. Some times they have a waiting list that they will form and give you spot when it opens.

    Another trick that I know student did at TTU is we knew when the payment deadline was and so right when that happen we would grab the spot.

    As for a program you almost have to write your own. I knew people who wrote more than one program that would refresh the page ever min or to and search for the classes he need.
