My school strictly insisted that I take less than 15 first semester. I will add another class for sure 2nd semester if it goes well. I won't be behind with this scheldule right? I do have 14 credits from ap w/ ap bio though.

Try taking an easy 1 or 2 credit course or gen ed requirement to bump it up to 15. You are going to have ssooooo much free time with only 13 credits then you are going to get used to only having13 credits then you wont preform as well when you do take more. You might as well just get in the rhythm NOW.

Just take intro to psychology (SUPER EASY), but you really should double up that science and take your first year of bio...

Just FYI now, many schools will not accept AP credits for prereqs. The ADEA official guide to dental schools will tell you which do or do not.

Liberal arts seminar? That course is garbage you won't need it for anything. Replace it with an easy gen ed that would bump up your credit hours to 14 or 15.
