Registration in Botswana

School registration began on Monday.  Unlike the normal 15 minutes required for online registration I have always used in the U.S. in Botswana we do it old school.  This means standing in line, meeting professors, and begging leaneancy.  Being a first year graduate student my classes were preset, so I didn’t have to make my own schedule.  This saved a couple of days, because there were only a handful of master schedules for the entire school and most people just went from department to department asking the schedule.  I didn’t notice many people being vocally upset at the long process, only a couple of people I met expressed frustration.  This does not mean that a lot of people don’t like the system, but are simply familiar with it and the processes.
