I am thinking about taking orgo 2, orgo lab, physics 2 and microbiology plus my research lab . Is this too much at one time. No other classes. This way I will be done with my science requirements next fall and can just focus on mcats next spring. Will I be setting myself up to fail? I’m at a very competitive school. TIA

I think only you know the answer to this question. We have no clue how capable of a student you are...
With that said, I think it's perfectly doable as long as you are willing to sacrifice some social time during busy exam seasons or else.

Yup, recipe for disaster. Take Physics next year.

I think taking 2 difficult classes is the perfect number because 1 is too light of a load and 3 is too much. Talking from experience.
