There are many resources available to help you think about course selection (see p. 87). What you decide to prioritize for Round I registration will depend largely on your academic interests. The CPS will help you reflect upon those interests and will also guide you through making decisions about courses to fulfill basic, divisional or pre-professional requirements.
A typical first-semester schedule should include a writing-intensive course, as determined by your DSP (unless you received AP/IB credit for WRI 111, in which case you may wait to take an FYS in the spring). Remember, you will be registered for this class before you complete Round I registration. Many students choose to begin working on their foreign language requirement along with other divisional requirements, while others choose to delve right into areas of academic interest or electives. Rest assured, there is no right or wrong answer!
