    Hi there, I just wanted to ask if anyone here is enrolled in Fordham's Army ROTC unit. Not sure if anyone else will be able to help me here, but I'm an incoming sophomore and I wanted to enroll for the Fall semester, 2011. My class registration date is coming up and I wanted to know for sure exactly what times PT, Labs, FTX's, and any other miscellaneous components of the class take place at what time of the day, and on which days of the week, particularly for the Lincoln Center campus, and perhaps if you know, Rose Hill's schedule as an alternative, too. I wouldn't want any of my classes to conflict with the events. My school operates on a priority-scheduling based system, so it's extremely hard to switch out of a certain time slot/day to overtally into another class, so I have to make sure I get it right the first time around. Might be weird that I'm asking this here but I've called their office numerous times throughout this week, for the past five days, and I'm assuming everyone's out because it is spring break for most schools. So at what days/hours should I not register my classes for? I'm only taking the basic courses (MSI and MSII, I believe) and planning to contract this year so I can attend LTC in the summer, so I don't know if the schedule is different between basic and advanced courses. I also checked their calender here, but I don't know if it's up-to-date or representative of their actual schedule:

    According to this, PT is on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 6:30 AM, but it doesn't list hours for lab/misc. events. Sorry for the trouble, I know this is much better taken care of by their own staff, but I'm hoping I'm fortunate enough that someone in their program exists on these boards or someone has knowledge of their schedule. Thank you.

    Go to MyFordham.edu Your MS classes are listed there like all other classes. It will give times, schedules and instructors just like other university classes. Military Science (MS) 100 or 200 level classes are University elective courses.

    Sorry for the double post... I just need some clarification. I sent the ROO at Fordham a similar e-mail, but the course catalog lists two MSI-level classes:

    Leadership Laboratory I (0 credits, 2 hours)
    Introduction to Leadership & The US Army (0 credits, 1 hour)

    Are incoming sophomores like me (who want to contract and attend LTC) expected to take both MSI courses in one compressed semester? And then in the following semester take the two corresponding MSII courses in the same semester? I understand if I began this whole process as a freshman I'd just be taking each course one-by-one, but I'd like to know if it's mandatory I take both in the same semester. The good news is both classes are back-to-back. The bad news is, I have to fit in the 3 hour session into my Wednesdays... I'm registering for 18 credits and though it doesn't seem impossible, it seems rather straining with the commute thrown in. Thank you for the link to the catalog before and for your input on this matter in advance.
