Thanks Brigitte :)

The deadline is early enough (mid March) that chances are still high you'll be able to secure the class you'd like. If a class was full they'd very likely ask if you'd be interested to take a different one instead.

What a wonderful opportunity, thank you! Just curious--the classes fill up quickly, don't they? What if the class of choice becomes full?
