Do the admissions people see how many the credits/load of each semester? I am considering taking a lighter load next semester in order to keep up my GPA (it is a tad low right now ~ 3.15). The main reason I am considering taking a lighter load is that I have to take this class (Genetics) that is taught by a teacher considered by many to be the school's hardest and many consider this to be the next to hardest biology class offered at the school, maybe the next to hardest class of the school (the hardest being another class by that same teacher). Many students who almost exclusively make A's struggle for a B in that class. Hence my question, will the admissions people know if I take a lighter load that semester for my GPA's sake? If so, would taking that lighter load be a bad idea?
