Answer: Most likely, you have selected a lab/discussion section that is already full. Choose one of the sections that is not full and you will be admitted. We will only allow students into labs who have been formally enrolled by Telebears, because there are only 28 seats in the room, so do not assume you can "crash" a section. For example, there is currently a lot of space in sections 20, 21, and 22.
Answer: Go ahead and register through Telebears, following the other suggestions for getting into a lab/discussion section. Then fill out a petition in the CS Office (3rd floor of Soda). Note that "lots of programming" does not count as a replacement for the prerequisite -- you need to have taken a very similar course, and these are not offered at many places. If you do not fill out a petition or your petition is not accepted, your name will be dropped from the class roster during the first few weeks of the semester.
Answer: There is only one room for 61B labs, so our only option is to add labs during off-hours. We will add sections to accommodate students if NO lab time is available, but we cannot do anything about students who want to get into labs that are full.
Answer: You should try to adjust the rest of your schedule so that you can make it to one of the available labs. Otherwise, you can put your name on a waiting list for a section you want, but be aware that only the top few names for each of these lists is likely to make it into that section. Most likely, if you put your name on a waiting list for one of the labs, you will not be admitted to the lab and therefore not be admitted to the course at all.
Answer: See the following web page on the fall schedule. Fill in the form with "CompSci" for the department and "61b" for the course.
Answer: It's in your best interest to attend the discussion section that goes with the lab that you attend, since you'll get to know this group of students and the TA. This will help a lot in getting into group for projects, and in the educational experience in general. However, we will not be strict about limiting enrollment in the discussion section, because there are normally a few extra seats in these rooms. (If this becomes a safety issue, i.e., there are people sitting on the floor or in the doorways, we may have to be more strict.)
Answer: First, as a concurrent enrollment student, you still have to satisfy the stated prerequisites, so you will not be admitted without CS61A or E77N. Because of the high demand for this class, concurrent enrollment students will only be admitted if there is space available in one of the labs. See one of the TAs at the end of lecture to get a temporary lab assignment for the first two weeks. At the end of the second week, we will decide whether there is room for concurrent enrollment students. (Note that you are only likely to make it into one of the less popular labs.)
Answer: In CS lower division class, enrollment is not limited to CS majors. However, you must satisfy the prerequisite like any other student. As noted above, if you need to file a petition, your chances of being admitted are not very high.
