Ok, so I am thinking about taking 3 classes this semester which would total to 12 credits. The minimum at my school to be considered a full time student is 12 credits. I want to take less classes so I can really put in extra effort for MCAT studying. I am taking it in early April and started studying a few days ago following a 3 month schedule. To make up taking 3 classes, I will have to take a winter intersession course next winter which is no problem for me. My question, do medical schools care or even have access to what courses you took when and what your course load was for every semester? Will they see that my regular course load per semester was 15-17 credits and all of a sudden I only took 12? If it is a big deal then I may consider taking 15 credits this semester while managing my time well to study for the MCAT.
