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.
