I would assume it depends on the school. GULC, for example, has its Section 3 which has a different curriculum. You can request that section.
Penn, meanwhile, makes it abundantly clear that it will not accept requests for a particular section.
I suppose if you could show a sufficiently persuasive reason (for example, the Section 1 classes conflict with [insert important shit here], while Section 2 classes do not), but I doubt wanting a particular professor is good enough.
Anyway, I think schools try and give you a good mix of good professors and not-so-good professors. So even if you don't get the one you're gunning for, you'll probably get another bigger name at some point.
