Currently i am signed up for 21 credits (5 classes and organic lab). at my school each class is 4 credits. now the norm is take 3-4 classes (12-16 credits). i am wondering should i take mroe credits, and possibly sacrifice my gpa (get lower than what i would probably take if i only took 16 credits) or should i just take the norm? i am taking organic, and that is my main concern, and i just want to get a good grade in that class. do med schools recognize that you may have a lower gpa due to taking less classes, or do they just care about the grades?
