I have a question regarding how many credit hours I should be taking. I currently work full time due to the need to support a family. I am planning on taking 12 credit hours this fall and have done so the past couple of semesters while working full time. I have seen that admissions committees like to see that people can handle bigger course loads (15-18 credit hours) each semester. I'm not sure I can do that many and keep my grades up while working. Anyone have any advice? Is 12 ok or do I really need to do 15+?
