Course registration woes. I thought it was bad for UW, when I couldnt get into courses i wanted cuz they were full.

Well apparently with the U of G, u cant even access the site cuz there's too many other students doing the same :yell: this for the past 3 hours...bloody hell. At least with UW I could log in and never once had this message.....at least put me in a que! nope..try again 'shortly' :frustrated:

Holy catz!! You couldn't even get on in the middle of the night?!? sigh...

At the U here, they assigned you a date and time to register--you could register any time after your 'appointment'. It didn't totally eliminate the "try again later", but it at least spread out the big rush...

Good luck today, onster! :goodvibes:

:laughing: Hazel, remember being a young 'un? Middle of the night is when the kids are most active :laughing:. I have to wait until the day is half over before I can call my daughter on her day off :frustrated:, then it's time for my nap :p :laughing:

Try at 7 AM, not so may kids awake then, Onster.

Hazel, the most annoying thing is u unlike UW, their schedule of classes is inaccessible unless you are logged in. I mean I couldnt even say ok whatever i dont have to register now, but lemme see how classes are filling up, maybe form a plan B.

At UW we had appointments too (so the site never crashed in my yrs of study) but seems at Guelph its a free for all.

What made it all worse is that I got my acceptance after the original course selection deadline in July so I got to go second round so it was already slim pickings with few spots in classes. Add that to not being able to log in and I was super frustrated!!

Thanks for the tip L4H, I actually couldnt sleep cuz I was fretting and ended up registering at 4am :D SOooo tired now but at least I got into classes :thumbs up And without my program counsellor's help :rolleyes: been trying to reach her for 3 weeks...never picks up the phone and never returns messages..and when i try to speak to anyone else they tell me I have to talk to her :rolleyes: Oh AND I am still misssing my registration info package which I was told would be sent shortly in an email on July 9th. Not a good first impression eh??

Come on Guelph, Im trying to like u, be good to me!!

Nonethless, I am excited.

Ummmm, about 600KM I reckon :shrug: Have to go see where Guelph is. Isn't that close to Kitchener? Queen's U is in Kingston, the very eastern side of Lake Ontario, at the beginning of the beautiful St Lawrence River.
