Another "complaining" post on Tele-BEARS

I just had my Tele-BEARS appointment a few days ago, though I am a rising Junior! As I expected, the classes I wanted to sign up were full, and so was the wait list for one of them!

It seems to me that scheduling becomes more and more of a problem as I go along in the years. I guess a lot of that is definitely the budget cut’s fault. No matter whose fault it is, competition for class seats will become tougher and tougher, and your schedule will become harder and harder to plan.

In case you are wondering how your Tele-BEARS appointment times are assigned, here it is:

For Fall
1st: athletes and DSP students
2nd: graduating seniors
3rd: seniors
4th: juniors and incoming students (fall-admitted freshman transfers)
5th: sophomores

For Spring:
1st: athletes and DSP students
2nd: graduating seniors
3rd: seniors
4th: juniors and incoming students (spring-admitted freshman transfers)
5th: sophomores
6th: fall-admitted freshman

So I guess the lesson is that not everything will go according to the plan! Keep in mind that some classes are semester-specific, ex. only offered during fall semesters, so be sure to factor into your class scheduling plans too.

Good luck! Scheduling is definitely part of the Cal experience!

Hmm... would have to say that the telebears is generally true; however, there are quite a few that break the telebears scheduling rule. For example, with sophomore status, I manage to have my telebears earlier than my junior status friends. It is also probably not by status either. I have an incoming freshman whose telebears is earlier than mine. Telebears is really really odd, that is all you can say.
