Read the book about advising. Thought their progaram is awesome. I just wanted to know if you guys are going to have a CAP Advisor, or just a regular one from the Dean. What CAP course(s) are you interested in?

I honestly am completely thrown off by these CAP courses...I am an engineering student and they sent me an engineering cirriculum guide a month ago...so what does this mean...that a CAP course is 1 of my 4 courses this fall semester? This is so confusing! I just want to use the Course Cirriculum sheet and take whatever!

I signed up for Beginning Japanese and Intro to Comparative Politics as my 2nd choice. In regards to the engineering thing, there's an engineering CAP course that you have to take.

acelement: I thought I saw a CAP course for engineering students in the list.
Anyway, I'm looking at the Cognitive Science courses, or maybe the Computer Science ones. Has anyone submitted their CAP course form deal thing yet?

nope ... and what's the deal with the first year seminars? there's this really tight one about "englishness and britishness in contemporary literature". sounds fun. we'll see!

i am still a little confused about the CAP courses ... so basically if u take one of those courses, that means that ur academic advisor is going to be ur CAP professor ? ... are there any disadvantages of taking them ? how many can one take ... what are all of u doing ?
|By Stug (Stug) on Tuesday, June 15, 2004 - 04:38 pm: Edit|
Cdiddy: yes, that's correct. Your prof in your CAP course will become your freshman year advisor. They're normal courses, though, so there will be other people in them who aren't taking them as CAP courses. You can sign up for as many as six, but you'll only get one.

|By Cdiddy (Cdiddy) on Saturday, June 19, 2004 - 05:39 pm: Edit|

Are you a PLME? I am a PLME.
I was wondering, do PLMEs have the option to sign up for CAP advising? Read the guide to liberal learning- I think that they say that you can't.
I am not sure myself. Does anyone know??
|By Cdiddy (Cdiddy) on Sunday, June 20, 2004 - 11:04 am: Edit|
yes, i am a PLME ... and yes, we have the option of signing up for CAP ... they are just basically trying to tell us that we are going to have a PLME advisor, who is going to be our main advisor through the first 6 years ... so, if you request a CAP advisor, he or she will probably help ... but if you dont request one ... then it will make no difference ... we are going to be assigned an academic advisor regardless as well ... so look through the CAP courses and see if there are any u are interested in
|By Bluegirly (Bluegirly) on Sunday, June 20, 2004 - 10:41 pm: Edit|
That's cool that you're a PLME! I'll probably see you in the fall.
What CAP courses are you considering? Also, are you taking science courses (to fulfill some of PLME requirements) fall semester?

Bluegirly and Cdiddy -- it'd really be a great benefit to me if you guys would share your stats and anything else that you feel may have helped you get into the PLME. I'm applying next year, so I could use any help I can get. Thanks in advance!

you plme people are da bomb ... hard as crap to get into that program. congrats from a lowly english major :-). j/k
|By Cdiddy (Cdiddy) on Wednesday, June 23, 2004 - 02:57 pm: Edit|

... signed up for intro to relativity and quantum physics 1st, then vertebrate evolution and diversity, brain intro to neuro, beethoven, and analytical mechanics. i'd be happy with any of them. but i'd be happier if i were not going to college in the first place and could live up in the mountains of new hampshire. (that's not an allusion to wanting to go to dartmouth...)
