    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.

I took all pre-req classes at the university but took physics 2 in South Korea during the summer. Will I have to take physics 2 again at a U.S. university or is it fine? Thank you in advance.
