College Adive Needed
Posted 07 August 2012 - 03:57 PM
I'm enrolling in college and two of the classes are closed, so I have to email the instructors to see if they will let me in their class.
Thing is, I have no idea what to say.

Other than that, not much else you can do.

er, no. That's the worse thing possible. Let them know you're interested, highlight why you want to take the courses, what you want to do, basically sell yourself and make them want to let you in. Think of it as an application for the individual subject. Be courteous and polite, and they may add you to a waiting list even if the classes are full with no lee way, THEN if kids drop out they can let you know.
I agree with Kane, but you could also wait until classes start. Usually, there is a drop period the few couple of weeks where students can drop their courses without penalty and enroll in other ones. You might end up finding the two closed classes open and then you can enroll in them.
It's a terrible idea to just wait for someone to drop out, you have to make it apparent you want that spot, then wait for someone to drop out. That way, they're likely to give you the spot. Honestly, are they going to give the place to someone who waits till the start of term to join after kids ditch, or let someone in who requested a place but is politely waiting on a list?

There almost certainly will be people switching classes or dropping out entirely, especially in the first few weeks. But I would definitely make sure you've done all you can to ensure that if there are more spaces, that the lecturers are at least aware of your interest. Otherwise in the meantime I'd start looking around for potential other options so that you have choice.
