Advisors post available times at least 1-2 weeks in advance. If the schedule is full, that only means nothing is available for the next week or two. You will need to schedule your appointment a minimum of 24 hours in advance of the appointment. If you find that you will be unable to make your appointment for any reason, make sure that you cancel it so that another student may be able to fill that space.
