I’m not being flaky this time, I have a valid reason for the change, two of them actually. This is the course I originally wanted, but it was full, so I took an alternate, but now I’ve been given a permit. The second reason, it counts towards a core requirement on the psychology degree, whereas the other course was a duplicate requirement (which makes it an elective credit).
So, reflecting my last change of course for the spring semester, here is my complete detailed semester, including the change from Clinical/Counseling Psychology to Cognitive Psychology.
