    Do Med schools look down on students who take say 12 instead of 15-18 credit hours/semester? I need to work so I'd rather cut down on classes and get better grades then fail misserably cuz I didn't have enough time. Also, doing this might cause me to have to take 5 years of undergrad instead of 4. Would that look bad too? Just guys are all so wise and give the best advice. (yes, I'm sucking up). :p

    I think having better grades is more important than having a crowded schedule. It is not a race to see who gets there first. Do your best and decide what is comfortable for you. Do not sacrifice an 'A' just to get it all done in four years. Good luck.
