Registration Frustration

JUN 28th:

"Course enrollment for the upcoming 2009-10 academic year for second- and third-year students will begin at noon on Thursday, July 9, using LawReg….

Please note the following:

(1) Four lottery rounds will be held in July."

JULY 8th:

"As most of you are aware, the University recently implemented a new student information system (SIS). In order to ensure that the roll-out of that system and its interface with the Law School's systems proceed as smoothly as possible, we are going to delay the first round of the course enrollment lottery, which was originally scheduled to begin on Thursday, July 9."

JULY 10th:

"As promised, this e-mail is to advise you that the first round of the course enrollment lottery will begin at noon next Thursday, July 16"

JULY 18th

"...Accordingly, we are extending the deadline for submitting your priority course lists until 11:59 p.m., Monday July 20."

JULY 20th:

LawReg will re-open no later than 3:00 p.m. today, Monday, and will close at 11:59 p.m. tonight. We will run the lottery beginning Tuesday and report the results…no later than 5:00 p.m. THURSDAY, July 23rd.

JULY 23 4:57 pm

"We are continuing to double-check things and will send out e-mails to all participating 3Ls on Friday morning, July 24th."

JULY 24, 12:05 pm

"Just a quick e-mail at 12:05 to advise that you will receive your lottery results shortly."

JULY 24, 2:05 pm

??????????????????????????????????????

It’s going to be very impressive to see them complete the other three rounds they have “scheduled” for July.

apparently you can see the courses you got on lawweb...but yes, for dropping 40+ large on an education per person, you'd think these people would figure this shit out.

Nice roundup. You forgot to point out his odd "I think everyone will be happy with the results of the lottery" (or something like that) statement the other day. Can't wait to hear that LawRegRT(!!!) is broken.

New career services dean...check.
New registrar...next year?

I figure come the start of classes in August we'll have just barely completed the first round and everyone will just say "Screw it" and go to whatever classes they want.

I actually had good luck with LawReg - the people were really nice when I was unable to log in - for whatever it is worth.

You see, if they just told us back in May that we would have to wait until August to register maybe I could forgive them. It is this shifting ever backwards of the dates that bothers me.

Maybe this year they can provide donuts when we sign in on their silly book? That would go a long way with me as an apology.

How are they going to get this all done before classes start???
