The 16 stages of course registration through gifs

Course registration season is upon us once again. One of the most important yet most terrible parts of being a student. The experience kind of happens in 16 stages.

1. The email comes that says that registration times have been posted.

2. You open up ConnectCarolina to see if the gods have blessed you with an early registration time.

3. ...but then you see that you've been chosen for 2:30 p.m. Again.

4. You start freaking out about your career.

5. None of the gen-eds look interesting.

6. ...and all of the good classes conflict with requirements you need for your major.

7. Finally you get your ideal schedule all planned out.

10. So you frantically plan a whole new schedule in 15 minutes through your tears

11. You realize most of the only classes open are sections at 8a.m.

12. But you just accept it and get on the waitlist for that class you really wanted.

via GIPHY

13. Even now you're still unsatisfied, so you email the professor and see if they can let you in.

via GIPHY

14. On the first day of class, you show up to try and get in from the waitlist

via GIPHY

15. ...But 10 people showed up before you.

via GIPHY

16. So you just accept the inevitable and praise the lord that course registration is over.
