Just as extra info, SCCO's first year schedule is as follows:

Monday
9-10 Exam
10-11 Anatomy and Physiology I
11-12 Lunch
12-2 Visual Psychophysics I
2-4 Anat and Physio Lab

Tuesday
10-12 Optics I
12-1 Lunch
1-3 Practice Management
3-4 Practice Management Discussion

Wednesday
8-9 Exam
9-11 Public Health I
11-12 Lunch

10-12 Biochem
12-1 Lunch
1-2 Anat and Physio
2-4 Optics I Lab

Friday

I lucked out because I don't have any 8 a.m. labs!!! And if anyone's wondering about those Mon. and Wed. exams, well, we actually have exams (or quizzes, I don't really know yet) on those days each week to keep us on top of things. I'm not sure if these exam days are in addition to in-lecture exams that we might have.

So this is my 20.25 unit schedule for fall quarter, yes QUARTER!!

wow.. that's quite a quarter. Do y'all have a clinical lab that first quarter?

It's strange how different the curriculums are. Is Visual Psychophysics the same as Vision Science. My guess is yes.. it just sounds fancier.

Looks like we're both in for some work!!
:D

We do have a clinical lab fall quarter, but it hasn't been scheduled yet. It'll only be an hour a week.
