Why is Priority 3 such a big deal? 

Some classes can fill up in a matter of minutes after open registration when is time to register for classes. JumpStart is looking out for your best interest. It is important for you to have priority registration; having one will boost your probability of getting into the classes of your choice. Priority 3 is the highest priority a new student can earn.
