His schedule for first semester freshman year arrived and there are some mistakes. Getting ds to call and try to straighten out the mistakes now is like pulling teeth. He thinks if he sends an email everything will be magically corrected by the time he gets there on Friday and starts classes on Tuesday. Oh well, I am sure that he will be happy when he ends up with classes that start at 8 AM and run until 7PM at night. That'll teach 'm eh? LOL. Maybe they will throw in a Saturday morning class to boot :)

Only too familiar. And if no one answers that email, they must just not have gotten to it yet... Uh huh. He'll learn...

Hi Robin,
Boys are fun! Did he finally heed your advice? Was the mistakes just times the classes were held or has he ended up with a second choice of subject?

He is enrolled in the wrong major - not a small error. As a result one of his classes is the wrong class. He is enrolled in Civil Engineering instead of geological engineering. He was enrolled in a biology class instead of an earth sciences class. He did finally call and change his major. Luckily that was no big deal. He was also enrolled in honors calc. He didn't want to take the honors class but he found out that he has to take it since he took AP Calc BC and got a good grade on the AP test.

The concept of a followup call is so foreign to him. He will learn...

Well that is the process of becoming an adult, learning how to do things for yourself.

Yep, mine will too, some year (just turned 19). Wanted to earn tons this summer but never told them he switched class time to evening so only got some weekend time. Gave him plenty of time to do well in the summer class at CC but he never asked who could fix it! ...and is now kicking himself...
