I currently have a 4.0 and have handled my classes. My question is 4 three hour labs too many? I've had 2 labs a week, but 4 is a big jump. I think i can handle it. I'm just curious to see what you guys think.

Calc 3 4 hrs
Orgo 2 3 hrs
Orgo lab 3 hrs ( 2 3 hr labs)
Physics 2 4 hrs (1 3 hr lab)
Bio 2 4 hrs (1 3 hr lab)

18 total

I could defer one class until the summer if that would be better.

lol :laugh:

I have four labs this semester - Bio, Orgo, Genetics, Comparative Anatomy. It isn't fun, but it's not that crazy either if you are a quick learner and good student. It seems that you are the best one to judge your own limits, and from what you wrote I think you are plenty capable and confident.

Did the same science classes, but the physics was the upper level for physics majors and I had a BME class as well for 22 units. A's in all.

It's totally doable as the premed reqs are not exactly the hardest classes in a science major. Also, in my experience, most of those labs were a joke: a lot of busy work and a lot of waisted time... whoever put up with the most BS got the A. For instance in orgo: "Today we are going to learn about fractional distillation. Make this product, distill for 3 hours, measure the MP for purity, then write a 5-10 page report on absolutely nothing."

By the way.. it completely jaded me and made me hate school....YMMV :laugh:

I took five last spring- Gen chem2, physics2, genetics, animal biology, and cell biology. Definately doable, definately a pain in the a$$.

you're a douche. no one is impressed by you. oooh, i never got lower than a 98 in orgo. Orgo really isn't that hard. Take the 4 labs, it will challenge you and that's what college is about. i'm sure you'll be fine.

smart enough? I just can't stand your arrogance. I've read your other posts and you haven't given any help to the op. However, that's your right. We simply have different views regarding posting. You're right, I concede to your superior intellect asswipe.

Jeez, take it easy. I'm sure that person wasn't meaning anything serious. And do you really have to spit out all those numbers to show everyone how wonderful you are. I'm not impressed.

I thought that. However, i saw in a couple posts he posted and gave no help to the poster. Sorry, I had just woken up and gotten on SDN and wasn't in a good mood. I'm just tired of people giving no insight to the ops. If you're not going to give any advice just don't post.

Well, he prolly does what I like to do sometimes (rarely). come here and blow off some steam by laughing at pre-meds or getting them to believe ridiculous things :smuggrin:
