    I dont plan on taking more than two labs at a time.
    Doing 1 bio w/ lab and 1 chem w/ lab is recommended for most semesters, freshman year being an exception.
    Too many labs will be very time-consuming and may hurt your GPA

    1rst year:

    Bio I: 4credit + 4hour lab once a week
    Chem I: 4credit + 4hour lab once a week
    Calc I: 4 credit + 1 hour lab once a week
    Some intro freshman class: 3cred

    ^ Second semester was the same except "II" or all of the above haha.

    3rd year first semester:

    Neurobio: 4cred + 4hour lab once a week
    Ecology: 4cred + 4hour lab once a week
    Physics I: 4cred + 3hour lab once a week
    Intro to Creative Arts: 3cred

    2nd semester third year:

    Comp. Anatomy (cat): 4credit + 4hour lab once a week
    Physics II: 4credit + 3hour lab once a week
    Genetics: 3cred no lab
    Marketing: 3cred
    American History II: 3cred

    It was tough to make a schedule around all those labs. Most of the time if you wanted to take a high level course like "Neuro" or "Histo"....the times available for lab shut you out of other courses.
