Hey everyone, I need some advice about my college course load. I am a biology major pursuing a minor in studio art.

I am a sophomore in college and I will be graduating a year early. This means I need to take my DAT this summer since I will be applying this upcoming cycle.

This fall I am enrolled in the following classes:
Genetics with lab
Organic Chemistry with lab
Microbiology with lab
Cellular and Molecular Biology

I am also involved at my church and I work around 20 hours a week. I am trying to get as many science courses out of the way this semester so I can go easy next semester and have time to prep for the DAT. Next semester I would be taking organic chemistry II with lab, two art classes and Immunology.

My question is, for those of you who have taken these classes, is this a heavy course load? Should I drop some classes? I am worried about dropping classes and looking like I didn't take challenging courses. But I am also worried that I won't do as well and that I wont have enough time to study.
Do you think this is a doable course load? If I should drop a class, which class do you think I can take next semester with organic chemistry and two art classes?

Thank you so much for your time and advice!!

Could you do it? Probably. Should you do it? Probably not.

All that matters is GPA. Get as high a GPA as possible.
