    Is it strange to attend classes you're not actually registered for? Word to getting a good education. [​IMG]

    no. it's called "auditing" a class.

    Yeah, why would you want to go to a class that you're not in?

    I had a friend who studied film and I used to attend the showings with her - saw some classics like "Citizen Kane" and "Serpico" on the bigscreen.

    it seems like "auditing" has a paperwork process with permission from the professor. ive been hitting up this class because i wanted to take it butthe classes were full to register. now i was just thinking about hitting up different lectures.

    hardly. i know plenty of people who just sit on in math/physics/bio/chem classes because they're about to take the MCAT/DAT/OAT.

    but then again, UCI is a large, public university.
    additionally, the people i know are already registered full time students at UCI, and they are just sitting in on undergraduatelectures, where lecture halls seat nearly 400 students.

    dunno man. i'm sure if you really want to you can just talk to the professor and see what they say/what the process is.

    not weird at all - i went to orgo class for a sem cuz i wasnt able to register into it due to things with my prereqs... helped me get ready for orgo when iactually took it

    also - if i was the studious/learned type i realized that i could go take college classes even back when i was in highschool, with lecture halls of 400 ppl,nobody would know or care

    so for all those young highschool kids that want to learn in life or get a head start in knowing these things - take some college classes on ur free time
