So it appears that I bit off more than I could chew and decided to take 6 classes this semester.

1. French II (1-year graduation requirement)
2. Organic Chemistry I
3. College Physics I
4. Cell Biology
5. Honors Seminar (Required Honors Program intro course)
6. Biology elective

Being a transfer student from a CC, not only must I acclimate to a bigger school, but to the huge courseload (most classes I've ever taken is 4). This semester has only begun, yet I've already bombed two quizzes and a lab all due to putting all my energy towards Orgo. Would it be a good idea to drop physics and take it my senior year? I'd be risking my "restarted" GPA if I were to continue with physics. I don't want to seem like a wimp but it is what it is. Please advise.

Thanks

GPA & MCAT are very important. Taking 4 science classes same semester right after transferring from CC is not, especially if it isn't working out. You can try taking the orgo 2 and physics 1 next semester if you feel ready and then physics 2 in the summer. But there is no rush. You wouldn't be a wimp, you would be someone with a realistic view. btw, ratemyprofessor website is good for finding best teachers

Agreed, when I transferred, I only took one science my fall semester to find my groove with the pace of courses.
