Okay, so I started a thread a little while back on my frustrations with community colleges needing pre-reqs before I am allowed to take the pre-reqs I need for nursing school
. As a few of you so wisely suggested
, I having been "shopping" around for community colleges, looking to see which ones require less pre-reqs or who allow students without the pre-reqs into the classes with instructor permission.
Newest road block: I e-mailed a lot of instructors at a couple different colleges today and many of them told me the same thing: the classes fill up fast and priority is given to students with more credits. Ummmm...how am I supposed to get "more credits" from their school if I just need to take 3 classes and they won't let me in?! I don't want to take classes I don't need just to give me more credits so I can actually register for the ones I do need!
Has anyone else had this problem? If so, what did you do? I explained that I was applying to nurisng school and only needed a few classes and this was still the response. Please correct me if I am ignorant here, but I really thought you could just..."take" the classes you needed at a community college as long as you signed up early enough....
Please help me, I am very frustrated!
