    So I'm currently a non-science major planning to take my pre-reqs. This summer I could take a condensed version of gen chem, O chem I, and O Chem II in 3 week intensives but earn 4 credits each because I'm at a quarter system school.

    Is this academic suicide? Has anyone else done an intensive like this?

    If I take 1 year of bio, 1 year of phys, the equivalent of 1 year of chemistry, and calculus 1 at a quarter system school does this transfer to 8 sememster hours of bio, etc.?

    For every 3 quarter hours, it transfers to 2 semester hours (makes sense because 3 quarters = 2 semesters).

    I'm taking Orgo in 3 week intensive quarters over the summer too, are you taking more than one at a time?
