Several questions here: How many credits should you take per semester? I plan on majoring in humanities while taking all prereqs as well as calc, genetics, and biochem. How many science courses per semester? My first three years were at a community college taking two to three courses a semester. All perfect grades. How many semesters at a 4 year university with a full load should one take before applying? I realize schools need to see that you can hack it consistantly? What would be the ultimate premed plan? Is there anything you would have done different?
