This past week was pre-enrollment for courses to take next semester. I pre-enrolled 6 courses, two of which are only pass/fail and are 1-2 credits each. The others were ECE 303, ECE 315, ECE 325, and ORIE 350.
I know that’s probably too much for me to handle, but here’s the dilemma:
I’m not sure if I’m really gonna take ECE 325 (foundations of ece mathematics) or ORIE 350. If I drop either one without adding, I’ll only be taking 14 credits, which seems kinda slackerish for an engineering major. The problem is there isn’t really a “light” elective that I can/would want to take either. And I’m still debating whether or not I should take ECE 325 or AEP 264, which fulfills my technical writing requirement. In any case, I thought writing an email to my newly-assigned-since-affiliation faculty advisor, whom I have not met in person yet, and ask him for feedback:
Dear Professor ____,
Hello! I’m sorry I haven’t actually met you yet, but I just wanted to let
you know what I’m pre-enrolled in and ask for some feedback:
ECE 303, 315, 325
CS 114, 213
Originally I had planned on taking ENGRC 350 instead of ECE 325, but it
got full really fast. One of my junior friends in AEP recommended that I
drop ORIE 350 because ECE 303 and 315 alone will easily keep me occupied
and ORIE 350 is relatively easy but a lot of work. He also suggested AEP
264 in favor of ENGRC for technical writing.
So I know that what I have right now is a lot, but I’m also hesitant to
drop ORIE 350 without adding something. Would dropping ORIE 350
and replacing it with AEP 264 be a feasible option? Is there a light
elective I could take instead of ORIE 350?
Oh yeah, I also need my pin number to lock my courses by Friday.
Thanks a lot!
Here is his response:
Hi hain-Lee: Six classes is too many. Your PIN is EN9060.

Thanks for helping me out professor. I’m that much closer to making a decision.
