I previously posted a thread about wanting to change my major from Civil Engineering to IS and Political Science at VMI. After contacting VMI on two separate occasions, which were months apart, I have been told twice that I will be unable to change to IS because of limited space, but that I may be able to switch to it later after matriculation through the department head. Does anyone else have any experience with this? Is it likely that a spot will open up? And would it be wise to contact the department head so that he can notify me if someone drops or possibly open a spot for me?
