Never underestimate the power of Photoshop, Excel, and a hell of a long time to stare at them and eventually realize "wait, that's really stupid".

The late night Math in the Winter semester pisses me off, but I couldn't wrangle it into another slot. I have no idea how the tutorials work in terms of necessity, otherwise I'd happy skip those that get in my way. As it is, I probably will skip the Winter Stats Tutorial as Labs are awesome.
This also allows me to take 6 course overloads both semesters of my fourth year. While I won't qualify for Animal Physiology or Neuroethology by then (which makes me really sad!), I'll be able to take Ornithology with my awesomeeeee first year prof instead. Then write my thesis the following summer and do my one remaining seminar in fifth year Winter while doubling at Algonquin.
I really wish Carleton had something to organize shit FOR you instead of doing this in such a frustrating manner. CMU actually has two competing sites that do such a thing - you select the course and it picks the section that fits best. Carleton just gives you the big ole list and it's up to you to wrangle it.
Anyway, I'm fairly pleased with my schedule. I'm kind of bummed that my Drugs & Behaviour won't be with Holahan (he only teaches the Winter section) but it's worth it to get to take such a neat course at all. I like reading the books, as nerdy as that sounds.
