    I am freshman right now finishing with General Chem and Calculus. Next year, in first quarter I am taking Genetics, physics, Organic chem, writing course and second quarter I am taking mammalian physiology, physics, Organic chem and writing course. Has anyone done this before?

    3 sciences sounds like a pretty easy semester to me...
    just finishing genetics, quant analysis, p chem w/ lab, and an upper lvl bio this semester. Coming up next sem. is biochem, analytical chem w/lab, inorganic chem w/ lab, and chem seminar.

    Although since you are a freshman, if you haven't adjusted yet it may be somewhat difficult.

    It can be done successfully, just make sure you know what you're doing.

    Any science major will have taken 3-4 sciences per semester.

    3 sciences in a semester is pretty light but 3 in a quarter? Sounds like it could be pretty intense, especially with all that orgo in one quarter. But then again, I'm not well versed in the whole quarter system.

    I'm taking 6 classes of upper-level biology and biochemistry this semester and doing research and so far, i predict a 4.0. But this is because I'd rather study bio than write an essay. I hate subjective grading and I think that I've gotten a B like everytime I took a writing course (and like at least 4 of them are required in my school).

    No matter how good at science you are, you simply need to to have the time to devote. If you have extracuricular activities/responsibilties, you probably just won't have the time to do well in 3 sciences. Figure out how you're going to partition the time before you register.

    Don't do it! Take 12 units and get drunk every other night! Enjoy your first semester freshman year, then get serious
