    Cool fit in

    Hello!

    Is the usage of "fit in" correct in this sentence, please?

    "My schedule is full but I'll do what is necessary to make our appointment fit in".

    Thank you
    Will

    NOT A TEACHER.

    It's probably correct, but I would prefer this: "My schedule is full, but I'll do what is necessary to squeeze in/fit in our appointment."

    Yes, it sounds perfectly normal in American English. Be aware that even subtle differences like this sound very different to other native speakers from other countries.

    Not a teacher
