I really messed up my freshman year and was wondering if it would be smart to take physics and o.chem together along with my other history classes. (I am a history major) it seems like a lot but for financial reasons I need to graduate in 4 years. Thanks. If you could rate how hard these classes were for you that would be helpful!

Assuming you take Orgo and physics together and assuming both of your professors are not easy. Expect to study 2-3 hours each day after each lecture. So for example if your orgo class meets up 2x a week, and 2x a week for physics, expect to put 8-12 hours every week JUST for these 2 courses.

These classes are only hard if you let s*** pile up till the last weekend before the test, if you do this and you have hard professors, don't expect to land a grade higher than a C..... On the other hand, if you review your lecture material after EVERY lecture for a couple of hours (2-3), review problems solved in class and try some out from the book on your own, your going to do great in the class (B+ minimum IMO)

I'm taking Ochem 1, and Physics 2 right now, along with statistics and physics lab (not orgo lab). I'm average intelligence, work part-time, am involved with student-organizations and am still managing pretty well.

I spend a lot of my free time studying for Ochem, and tend to neglect my other classes, but only because I can get away with it and still manage A's. You might not have a social life, but it's a reasonable price to pay for graduating on time (considering your circumstances).

My favorite class is Ochem right now...absolutely <3 it. Definitely getting straight A's this semester.

Don't be intimidated by ochem; just spend some quality time alone together and you'll become best buddies. Good luck. :thumbup:
