    Hello. So is there such a thing as taking too many science classes? I know as an undergraduate you should be taking classes you are interested in, and I just happen to be interested in anything biology related? For instance, I have already taken Neurobiology 1 and 2 and Endocrinology. This semester I will be taking Endocrine Physiology (higher level graduate course), immunology, and Neurobiology of sleep (unless I am taken of the wait list for Lab in Developmental Biology). Will this make me seem like an one dimensional student or "boring
    to adcoms? Thanks

    Not really, no. Just making sure you have all the prereqs, and maybe 1 or 2 of the "recommended" courses for some of your top schools.

    I think it depends on the difficulty of your university. 12+ credits of science is very manageable at my school.
