The end of the semester is almost here, and those of us who are returning for another semester know what this means: It’s time to pick our classes. With Phase I rapidly approaching, it’s time to start planning — and panicking.


  1. When is your Phase I?
    1. This week.
    2. Next Friday.
    3. I’m not sure.
  2. Do you have a plan?
    1. Yes! Not only do I know what I want to register for, but I also have at least one backup option for each class.
    2. I’m planning to leave my discussion early to make sure I can focus on enrolling.
    3. Um … I plan to get classes?
  3. What’s the biggest challenge you’ll face this Phase I?
    1. I’m trying to take PACS 126. Wish me luck.
    2. I’d like to enroll in some upper division classes, but I haven’t declared my major yet.
    3. I don’t know what I want to take yet.
  4. How do you feel about the new 13-unit cap?
    1. I’m all for it! I’ll be able to get almost all of my classes because of it.
    2. It’s exciting, but I’m afraid that it means that everyone will fill up more of the classes I want.
    3. They raised the enrollment cap? Since when?
  5. What’s your Wi-Fi situation?
    1. My apartment has its own router.
    2. I’ve got AirBears 2 on my laptop, but I have an Ethernet cable just in case things go awry.
    3. Usually, I rely on CalVisitor, which works (most of the time).
  6. What’s at stake this time?
    1. Not much! I only have one or two requirements left to complete.
    2. A fair amount. I’m trying to get out of here ASAP, so every class matters.
    3. Nothing really. I just need some more units to graduate.
    1. You’ll be just fine! Don’t worry too much about it.
    2. Be strong. While you may not get all of your first-choice classes, you won’t get totally screwed.
    3. Well … We at the Clog wish you the best of luck. You’ll be able to get classes, at least.
