I arrived at college with 36 credits, so most of my general education credits were completed. I was able to get into major courses almost immediately and that was one of the reasons I took up a dual degree. I've had my courses planned out for my college career since my freshman year. Even though I had to wait until registration to see what was open, I stuck to that plan pretty closely. I've taken four years of courses but there's many that I never got the chance to take.
