I got an email from someone in the HFE department (sent to all the admits, not just me) saying that one of the courses he's teaching is full, despite what the registration page says and they don't know if it'll be offered in the spring semester. There's another class that he's teaching that we all should be enrolled in. The online schedule says enrollment is 48/50. If I don't register, then I'm screwed. There still are three prerequisite courses that I need to make up anyway, so I don't believe it matters, unless those classes are full too.
I feel so embarrassed to contact the department chair. I was supposed to arrange a meeting with him as soon as possible (back in July) to pick classes. At the time, I felt that I should just go through with it, regardless of what happens concerning the Tufts MBS program. I knew, however, that if I did that, I wouldn't bother applying to the Tufts program. I should have just gone forward and done it, even though my parents were discouraging. Backing out last minute is still easier than trying to cut in last minute.
I still haven't heard back from the Tufts program. When I check my status it hasn't been updated yet. It's awfully late for them to offer admission now, since classes start the last week of August. In the case that I did get admitted, I would need to book a flight and find a place to live (the hardest part). I don't believe I can get it done within two weeks. It's so stressful.
I'm not sure the HFE program is right for me. I'm afraid of student loan debt, in case I don't finish it. Or what if I do finish it and still have a hard time finding a job? (That's what my dad always says, but he doesn't understand what it's about.) So if I were to contact the HFE department chair, what should I say? "I was busy with work." Or do I not need to make any excuses? Just "I need to sign up for courses now."
