Anyone have experience with this? Only 20 spots left open in the class and those 20 are reserved for incoming freshmen who register during their orientation. I really want to take this class... is emailing the professor what to do? It shouldn't be a really popular class for freshmen anyway. Grr.

Yes. Get an override. Basically beg your way into class. You will probably need an override form from the registrar. If the prof doesn't respond to your e-mail (although I am sure he/she will), show up on the first day of class with the form and attend class then have him/her sign it. :) good luck.

Getting added into classes after they are full is pretty normal at my school. Every time I needed to add a class that was full, the teacher took care of it for me.

Send the professor an email now, and if you can't get anything official done, just start showing up to class and talking to the prof about getting signed up. People will drop.

This. Go to class and you will probably get added the first day. Get on the waitlist if there is one.
