I learned something today. When you send me an email in all
capital letters the email system thinks your email is a junk email. Instead of
getting to me faster, it actually means I may not get your email at all.
Thank you for letting me know the specific times you are available.
I am happy to call you between 1:00pm and 1:05pm since those are the only times
you have available. Never mind that the issue I believe you want to talk to me
about is totally impossible. Unless of course you can wow me with your
knowledge of Anthropology, reading, writing and Psychology enough for me to
decide that you don’t need any of those prerequisites. I am sure your stellar
personality and your limited availability is enough for me to arbitrarily
decide that you, and just you, should be able to take whatever class you want
whenever you want.
Thank you for contacting me today with your plans for
graduation. I am happy to say that it is possible to take 20 credits in the
summer. However, the schedule you have put together are of all classes that
have never been offered in the summer. But since you HAVE to graduate RIGHT NOW
I’m sure we can offer those classes just for you. Or just feel free to take any
20 credits and I’m sure we will just apply them to your degree and assume you
have the content knowledge.
Thank you for your email notifying me that your assigned
advisor is sick. You are correct, he is sick. According to the rest of your email
you say “I cannot register.” This is also correct. What a bummer.
You know that “100 credits” you say you have? You may have
taken them but unless you have them transferred they do NOT count. Of course,
they may just be invisible credits where we just read your mind and give them
to you anyway. As long as we’re handing out credits, we might as well just hand
out your degree.
I love your perception that prefixes to courses do not
matter. Of course BESC 3100 and PSY 3100 and SOC 3100 are all the exact same
class. The prefix has no bearing on the content, or subject matter, and it is
truly only the course number that matters. In that case, please feel free to
also look at MATH 3100, ENGL 3100, PHIL 3100 or any other subjects that offer a
3100 course since they would all count to fulfill the exact same requirements.
