    Concern about courseload

    I didn’t get into a class in one of my semesters and ended up with fewer graded units (~ 8 science) + 7 PNP (4 teaching) = total 15. I don’t want to seem like I’m trying to take easy courseloads to increase my gpa. Is this something to worry about? Please let me know your thoughts.
